Residence for elderly priests
to be inaugurated on Dec. 15

A new hospice and residence for sick and elderly priests will be inaugurated  in Hda. Makina, Silay City, 2:30 p.m. December 15.

The blessing of the building and facilities of the St. John Mary Vianney Complex will follow a mass presided over by Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra in the New Domus Dei Hospice Chapel inside the complex, a press release from the Diocesan office said.

The Complex sits on a five-hectare lot donated by Roberto Jalandoni and his family and is envisioned to become a “Priests’ Village”. It houses, among others, structures and facilities that will cater not only to the needs of the elderly and retired priests, the sick and elderly priests who used to stay at the Old Domus Dei Building inside the Sacred Heart Seminary Compound in Bacolod City, but also provide a place for those in active ministry, the press release said.

The new hospice contains individual rooms for sick and retired priests, a refectory, kitchen, clinic, office and a chapel.  It is set for occupancy after the blessing. Members of the Daughters of the Immaculate Conception of Charity will take care of its daily operations.

It also houses a dormitory, a covered pavilion, guesthouses and individual houses for priests.

Msgr. Noly Que, in-charge of construction, said they also plan to build a Shrine to St. John Mary Vianney inside the complex, a Retreat House/Center for Spirituality and a Rosary Park, the press release added.*
