In a Circular Letter No. 2022-007, Bishop Patricio A. Buzon, SDB, DD enjoins the whole Diocese of Bacolod to observe the month of March as “Safeguarding Awareness Month.”
This is “to create awareness among the faithful regarding the existing program of the Diocese of Bacolod on safeguarding”, the circular noted.
The Diocesan Safeguarding Office, together with the Diocesan Commission on Liturgy, prepared and forwarded prayer materials on safeguarding for the use of the parishes and chaplaincies.
The prayer materials included a special introduction for the Mass on the Third Sunday of Lent, Prayers of the Faithful and a Prayer to St. Joseph
The circular was issued by the Chancery last March 17, 2022.
