With the onset of the rainy season, volunteers of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Baclayon, Bohol, have been speeding up the construction of houses for Balay Igsuonay, a project that seeks to provide a new house for the poorest family in each of the chapel areas in the parish.
From Libertad Chapel: Federico and Fidela Sambayon look visibly moved during the handover and house blessing on June 4.
Parish volunteers also donated curtains, a small altar with holy images, and a feast for the house blessing. The bibingka, torta, and budbud (suman) look delicious! (smiley)
As always, we are grateful to Msgr Harold Parilla, who is always available to bless the Balay Igsuonay houses and whose inspiring vision has mobilized teams of committed volunteers.
Balay Igsuonay is a partner of TYF's Supertyphoon Odette rehabilitation project. TYF committed funds to construct 18 houses in the parish.
