Quezon City – Rev. Fr. John, CMF was ordained by Most Reverend Martin Jumuad, D.D., bishop of the Prelature of Isabela de Basilan Thursday morning at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, UP Village, DIliman, Quezon City, Philippines. The prelate almost missed the ordination due to the cancellation of domestic flights in and out of Manila since the day before the ordination. Good that a C130 plane was travelling during the early hours of Thursday and so the bishop was able to ordain Rev. John as scheduled. The Delegate Superior of East Asia Delegation was not able to join the celebration due to travel matters. Fr. Marcelli Fonts, CMF, the former Delegate Superior, now Prefect of Formation of East Asia represented him. Other priests friends of Fr John joined the celebration as well as some Claretian priests, brothers and students from Japan were also present.
