Pray for me, Buzon asks
Calls for respect for human rights

Moved by the warm welcome he received from Hinigaran town to Bacolod City, Bishop Patricio Buzon, the new bishop of the Diocese of Bacolod, asked the faithful to pray for him as he takes on the challenges of leading the Church in the diocese.

Buzon said his new assignment in Bacolod will not be as easy as it was in the Diocese of Kabankalan since the society is bigger and life in the city is more complicated than in the countryside.

The new bishop of the diocese said he is thankful for his predecessors for stabilizing the diocese, and looks forward to great things ahead. moremoremore

Inverted crosses, black paints
hit Dumaguete Catholic school

Police investigators are looking deeper into acts of vandalism inside the campus of a Catholic university in Dumaguete City even as regular classes resumed yesterday.

The St. Paul University-Dumaguete administration, however, continues to decline requests from the media for comment on the activity, allowing police investigation to progress without interruption, University External Affairs director, Raffy Duhaylungsod, said.

Duhaylungsod confirmed that classes were suspended Friday following the discovery of the vandalism acts spread across the campus. .
