Installation of Fr. Jonathan Letada, SVD

Installation of Fr. Jonathan Letada, SVD

Last August 28, 2016 the parish of the Risen Christ in Smokey Mountain, Balut, Tondo, Manila installed a new parish priest in the person of Rev. Fr. Jonathan Letada, SVD. The installation was presided by the Archbishop of Manila, Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle together with some priests from the diocese of Manila and SVD priests with the provincial superior of the central province Fr. Nielo Cantilado, SVD.

The installation was well attended by the parishoners that  the church was filled and many were standing. The readings of the mass that day was very timely for the central theme was about humility. Cardinal Tagle stressed in his homily about humility. While looking at Fr. Jojo, Cardinal Tagle said “The greater you are the humbler you should be.

Nasusukat ang kadakilaan sa pagiging mapagpakumbaba. Maging dakila kang pari hindi dahil naninigaw ka, hindi dahil nananakot ka, hindi nanginginig sila sayo kundi dahil you mirror the humble and tender high priest, Jesus Christ, na kung minsan mas pinipiling tumahimk sa harapan ng mga pilato... at sa iyong mapagpakumbabang kamay inihahabilin ang sambayan dito at sa inyo rin po aming inihahabilin si pader, alagaan niyo po si pader.”

 Fr. Jojo was a former student of Cardinal Tagle in Divine Word Seminary in Tagaytay when he was still then the bishop of Imus.
