NAGA CITY 2/28/17 (Bicol Standard)—An ordinance to create a task force that shall monitor HIV/AIDS cases and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) in this city has been proposed by Councilor Jose C. RaƱola.

Said task force, according to the ordinance, will also conduct surveillance to ensure protection of minor children against HIV/AIDS through possible involvement in sex trade.

The proposal is in light of the recent findings that Naga City has the highest number of HIV/AIDS cases in Camarines Sur from 1984 to November 2016.

According to the Department of Health Regional Office V, Naga City recorded 15 HIV/AIDS cases.

Next on the list is Magarao, which has 4 cases.

Minalabac, Bato, Pasacao, and Ragay recorded 2 cases each.

Archdiocese of Caceres spearheads anti-EJK, anti-death penalty campaign


On March 1, 2017, 4PM, at the Cathedral Patio, our beloved Archbishop of Caceres will lead the Via Crucis, with the theme “An Dalan Kan Cruz ni Cristo: Burabod nin Pagbabago sa Parokya.”
As we pray for our parishes, we contemplate on Christ’s passion as He carried the cross and walked to His crucifixion.

As Filipino Catholics, we are called to bring the Gospel to society, and society to God. In the midst of the challenges in our country today, let us join the Via Crucis fervent in prayer, fueled by our love for our country, firm in our desire for justice and fully aware that peace cannot coexist with terror and tyranny.

In an effort to make our voices be heard, statement shirts that proclaim the value of life are available at St. Paul Media Center, St Jude Parish - Naga City, and Ateneo de Naga University Press. We encourage everyone who will make the Way of the Cross on March 1 to wear the shirt as a vote for life and against killings and death penalty. Those who cannot wear the statement shirt, please wear any white or black shirt.

The Via Crucis is an expression of self-giving as Christ suffered and died for our sins. Our collective prayer on March 1 declares our openness to follow Christ’s example and to take up our own cross so our country will receive “the Word which redeems, the Blood which purifies, and the Spirit which gives life.”

Let us pray for our parishes so they may be instruments of conversion. Let us also pray for our own conversion so we may be worthy disciples of Christ. Let our voices be heard.

Archdiocese of Caceres
