- BISHOP DINUALDO ORDAINS REV. BAGO, CP
Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez ordained priest Rev. Archie G. Bago, CP, 8 June 2017, Holy Cross Parish Church, Calumpang, General Santos City. Forty priests concelebrated.
God called Samuel. Samuel answered “Speak, Yahweh, Your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3: 1-10). Priests are servants of the Lord.
Priests are also servants of the people for Christ’s sake; they preach Jesus as the Lord, not themselves (2 Cor. 4: 1-6).
Priests are also shepherds. They feed the lambs and sheep and look after them as expression of their love for Christ and Christ’s flock (John 21: 15-19).
Priests are servants and shepherds. They are also stewards. Stewards of God’s mysteries; stewards of parish/congregation’s assets.
We have three shepherding programs in Marbel: (1) pastoral accompaniment of Christian families from womb to tomb and beyond; (2) pastoral accompaniment of illegal drugs users and pushers (PAID-UP); (3) pastoral accompaniment of children in need (PAC-IN) – also known as “SUKARAP” (Sugal, Kawat, Rape, Patay).
We must be zealous shepherds, joyful servants and faithful stewards.
Fr. Archie was born on 26 October 1980 at Lagao; but grew up in Fatima. The 5th among 6 siblings.
Father, Antonio T. Bago is a native Bla’an from Maasim, Sarangani. Mother, Erlinda Ortiz Guanzon (deceased) is a native of Lagao, GSC; her origin is from Iloilo.
He entered the Seminary at the age of 27. High School – Fatima. Graduated from NDMU in 2010. Graduated from Loyola School of Theology on 10 May 2017 with degrees of Bachelor of Sacred Theology and M.A. Pastoral Ministry.
