Murcia ‘healing’ rift
BY CARAL GOMEZ
Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra will celebrate mass at the Immaculate Conception Parish Church in Murcia, Negros Occidental, at 3 p.m. today in what is seen as a step towards healing a rift between the town officials and parish priests of the town.
Navarra officiated over a dialog between the town officials and the priests Friday and it appears that both parties are putting their differences and misunderstanding aside to work for the good of Murcia, a source said.
A rift between the two Catholic priests -- Parish Priest Greg Patiño and Parochial Vicar Fr. Agustin Hinayan, and the town officials of Murcia was triggered by a word war over the manner in which a fight against illegal drugs and gambling in Murcia was being waged by the clergymen.
