Taytay Mission

On July 25, Feast of St. James, the Council for Formation, Bro. Ruel Santos, TOC , and the Regional Formator of NCR - North, Sis. Rossana Garcia, TOC, visited the "Church in the Sky": the Parish of Christ the King in Muzon, Taytay, Rizal. They went to the church upon the invitation of Rev. Fr. Eymard Balatbat, TOC who is the parish priest. Rev. Fr. Eymard wants to establish a TOC community in his parish so Bro. Ruel and Sis. Rossana gave an intial talk of what the Third Order is about and what are the requirements in taking this way of life.

After the talk, the relics of the Carmelite saints were venerated by the partcipants. If the mission pushes through, this will be the replanting of the Carmelite Third Order in the Diocese of Antipolo.
