Three new priests,
four deacons to be ordained
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The Diocese of Dumaguete will soon have three new priests and four new deacons this month, which Bishop Julito Cortes has described as a huge grace from God for the diocese.

Cortes will be the ordaining prelate for both the candidates to the priesthood and the deaconate in a mass at 9 a.m. on February 14 at the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria in Dumaguete.

To be ordained as priests are Reverends Arturo Conrad Lagarde, Gonzalo Gelbolingo Omison II, and Mart Camansi Salac.
