  • November 28, 2020

Bishop Patricio A. Buzon, SDB, DD inaugurates the “Msg. Victorino Rivas, JCD Memorial Convalescent Home” at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine compound in B.S. Aquino Drive, Bacolod City last November 28, 2020

The newly inaugurated facility named after the late Msgr. Rivas will serve the health-related accommodation and needs of sick and aging priests in the Diocese of Bacolod.

According to Property Office Priest-in-Charge Rev. Fr. Gregorio Neri, the facility is the answer to years of ‘exploring cost effective measures, without compromising the quality of health care services given to sick and elderly priests by the Diocese of Bacolod.”

“It’s a strategic location for priest patients and their physicians who are mostly doing their rounds among the hospitals in the area,” Fr. Neri added.

Also in attendance, during the Blessing and Inauguration Rites was Fr. Nitodel Soriano, Rector of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine.

Bishop Buzon expressed his gratitude to all who made this project possible.
