TO MEN & WOMEN OF GOODWILL:
Peace and Love!
While the reconstruction of the Allen parish church has already gone too far, it is also the desire of the Allenians to rebuild the Parish rectory which is fully dilapidating and its reconstruction is now our priority, it being not already fit for habitation (see pictures below). The Maintenance and Heritage Committee of the Parish has made the plan and cost estimates of the rectory project, which amounts to Php 7,700,000.00 of the 308 square-meter spaces of two-story building.
As what we have experienced with the reconstruction of the parish church building, we only depend on benevolent donors. And, as we fully well know of your capacity to donate for said project, we humbly solicit your assistance. Based on the Committee’s estimates,
Php 25,000.00/sq. meter is the very least you can give.
Should you wish to answer this humble request, you may send your donation to the undersigned or to our Parish Pastoral Council Treasurer, Ms. Rebecca V. Villanobos, Allen, Northern Samar, or direct to our ATM Account, # SA 1196-0807-55 of the Land Bank of the Philippines, Catarman Branch, Catarman, Northern Samar, Philippines.
A little portion from your abundance shared with the Christian community of this parish is an immense stride toward the fulfillment of God’s kingdom. Remember, it maters not how much you give. It’s the faith that goes with the giving which makes the difference.
Your humble servant in the vineyard of the Lord,
Rev. MSGR. GASPAR D. BALERITE, H.P., S.Th.D.
