Dansolihon – Creation of Chaplaincy and Sacrament of Confirmation

The Pastoral Area in Dansolihon, Lumbia Parish, known also as Zone IV, became a Chaplaincy. It was officially declared by the Archbishop of Cagayan de Oro, Bp. Antonio Ledesma, SJ, DD during the Holy Mass, at 7:30 am on February 25, 2007, held in Dansolihon.

This declaration gives more pastoral freedom and possibilities to the SCJ community taking care of this area. At the moment Fr. John Karl Cabaluna from the SCJ Community of Cagayan de Oro is the official Chaplain, assigned by the SCJ District and confirmed by the Archbishop. The Chaplaincy consists of 25 chapels.

During that ceremony also more than 200 young people and adults received the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Confirmation Rites were also held in Vicmar, one of the chapels, where more than 100 people received the Sacrament.

The Ceremony was attended by fellow SCJs and the Parish Priest of Lumbia Parish.
