Zamboanga Archdiocese Celebrates Golden Jubilee

The Archdiocese of Zamboanga will celebrate the Golden Jubilee of its elevation into an achdiocese on May 19. Highlighting the milestone event is a Eucharistic Celebration to be held at the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

Other activities lined up are a motorcade around the city to be participated by the different religious organizations, the display of the Archdiocese's memorabilia at the Metropolitan Cathedral's conference hall, and the launching of the jubilee's official website and newsletter.

The objectives of the celebration are centered on "3Rs", which are the Reflection of History, Renewal of the Local Church, and the Ritualization of Celebration.

With the theme, "Remembering the past with gratitude, living the present in communion, facing the future with renewed spirit," the 3-year celebration will focus on revisiting the past and acknowledging the efforts of lay partners, the renewal of the local church by assessing the present situation and to celebrate its history through songs, dances, signs and symbols.

In recalling events in the history of the local church, the diocese sprang from the Diocese of Nueva Caceres. In April 10, 1910 Pius X canonically erected the local Catholic community into a diocese. In 1958, it was promoted into an archdiocese.
