BY CARLA GOMEZ

Bacolod Bishop Patricio Buzon yesterday issued a decree declaring that the Queen of Peace Parish Church in Bacolod City was no longer a parish church or diocesan shrine, effective yesterday morning, before a teary-eyed congregation.

The decree was read by Diocese of Bacolod chancellor Fr. Roy Gesulgon at the end of the last mass of the church officiated by the bishop and concelebrated by more than 30 other priests, before a congregation of about 1,000, some of whom were dressed in black.

In his decree, the bishop said that, as a consequence to the closure of the church, there will be a suspension of all Church services, and no reservation of the Blessed Sacrament will be permitted there. moremoremore

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

Dumaguete City is now host to several evacuees from besieged Marawi City, with the arrival of five families numbering about 30 people since Tuesday, and more are expected to come through inter-island vessels.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said the first three families arrived Tuesday and yesterday, two more families joined their relatives.

Most of them are natural Maranaw traders who could not bear the threats on their lives in Marawi. Being traders, the newly-arrived evacuees are seeking permission of the mayor to sell their wares on the sidewalks..
