3 Filipino brothers celebrate golden jubilee

31/08/2006: Philippines

Three Filipino Marist Brothers celebrated their golden jubilee last July 29, 2006. They were Br. Gilbert Bogacia, Br. Timoteo Cabangon, and Br. Eugene Pius Tajo. The Liturgy, presided over by Archbishop Orlando Quevedo, OMI, DD, of the Archdiocese of Cotabato, was celebrated at the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish Church in Lagao, General Santos City. It carried the theme, “One thing I ask of the Lord: To dwell in His house all the days of my life.” (Ps, 27.4)

The said occasion was graced by the brothers, priests, sisters, family members, lay mission partners, and friends. Br. Joseph Damian Teston, one of the first four American Marist Brothers to start the Marist presence in the Philippines in 1948, flew in from the United States to be with the Brs. Gabe, Tim and Pius. He had the honor of bestowing the apostolic blessing to them.

Capping the celebration was the fellowship meal at the Notre Dame of Dadiangas University High School gym. It was indeed a wonderful experience of family spirit, as the three brothers witnessed to God’s fidelity for the past 50 years.

Brs. Gabe, Tim and Pius did their initial formation in the United States in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Since then, they have dedicated most of their lives in active ministry here in the Philippines.
