Medical professionals
join White Mass

Medical professionals in the province attended the 5th Annual White Mass held on January 14 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Redemptorist Church).

Fr. Ruel Jundos, chairman of the Diocesan Commission on Health Care of the Diocese of Bacolod, along with Fr. Alfonso Arrojo and Fr. Romy Mendoza, cited the Liturgy Committee headed by Dr. Salvacion Jesena and Dr. Henrietta Lucasan, for helping the commission in organizing the event.

Within the Eucharistic celebration intended for all medical professionals was the giving of special recognition through the DCHC by Bishop Vicente Navarra, represented by the diocesan Chancellor Secretary Fr. Segmundo Chua III to Fr. Dexter Dominic Somcio for initiating the White Mass five years ago.

“The coming together of medical professionals in that occasion served also as an opportune time both for Negros Occidental Medical Society and Canlaon Medical Society to give their gesture of thanks to Fr. Somcio,” Jundos said.

The celebration of the “White Mass” was also highlighted by the historical handshake of the presidents of Negros Occidental Medical Society and Canlaon Medical Society as an act of unity.

Jundos also thanked Dr. Lorenzo Cabalfin Jr. and Dr. Jose Javellana for their contribution in the preparation in making the White Mass meaningful and fruitful.

The Diocesan Commission on Health Care is planning to have a Lenten retreat for doctors and nurses. Those interested may send a note addressed to Fr. Ruel Jundos at the Riverside Medical Center.*NAB
