Tungawan, Zamboanga Sibugay.

A day before, Bro. Noe Dora, a convert pastor together with some other pastors who were converted to the catholic faith, gave some inspirational messages to the parishioners. They gave their testimony in their faith in Christ and the conversion that had happened to them.
From now on, the parish fiesta will be every 16th of August. The parish decided not to celebrate the parish fiesta on Easter Sunday due to complication in schedules and for practical purposes. It is also on its discerment of changing its titular into San Roque than the present Risen Christ name of the parish.
