This time of prayer ...

HOCUS POCUS?
Bishop Ambo David

I wonder if Catholics know that the magicians’ gibberish “Hocus Pocus” comes from the words of consecration pronounced in Latin by the priest over the bread and wine for the Eucharist. At a time when people could hardly understand what was going on at Mass, there w...

Today’s Gospel is a continuation of last week’s Gospel: Jesus is speaking to his disciples at the Last Supper.

5th Sunday of Easter

04 28, 18 – 05 5, 18

In the 5th Sunday of Easter, we hear of another image of Jesus, that is, the vine. The Old Testament literature often speaks of the people of Israel as God’s vineyard producing sour grapes because of their infidelity (see Ps 80; Is 5; Jer 2:21; Ez 15). When Jesus takes this as his personal image,...

Easter, also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday, is a celebration of the resurrection of Christ. Easter is celebrated for 40 days until the day before Ascension.

The Way of the Cross (Via Crucis) is a Catholic devotion which recalls with mindful affection the last stage of the journey that Jesus walked in his earthly life: from when he and his disciples, « after psalms had been sung, left for the Mount of Olives» (Mk 14, 26), until the Lord was taken to t...

My family and I love to attend mass here because it's solemn and my daughter is one of the lectors in this church.

The church follow a very strict schedule given that it's run by the military. I love the fact that the separation of church and state is practiced here. You would hear no criticism or praise to the government; just plain sermon in relation to the readings. The church is airconditioned and is very organized especially during communion. The schedule here are the ff: Sunday: 0730, 0900, 1700 Wednesday: 1700 Friday: 1700 Saturday: 1800 (Anticipated Mass)

THE OUR LADY OF REMEDIES CHAPEL

When the Americans left Clark Air Base, one of the facilities that was left maintained and preserved by the 13th Air Force was Chapel One (1) and Two (2).

Chaplain Services were manned by Five (5) Personnel and One (1) Civilian Employee. In spite of the apparent scarcity of manpower, Chaplain Services Personnel was able to restore Chapel One (1) which is buried in knee-deep volcanic debris. 

Fr. Delfin Fredo was the first Chaplain who assumed the misery of the effect of the devastation of Mount Pinatubo.

On 01 October 1994, during the incumbency of Fr Eustacio S. Galindo as Wing Chaplain, the Military Bishop gave a special instruction to the Wing Chaplain to create a Pastoral Council whose priority was to name the chapel's Patroness. That same year, the council decided to have "Our Lady of Remedies" as the patron saint. 

November 26 is the Feast Day of the said patroness whose portrait  is known to have survived the test of time (wars and calamities). 

As the years passed, Our Lady of Remedies Chapel underwent several renovations. The roof was replaced, the side door was replaced by iron carved locker. The altar table was changed entirely. 

The half-putrefied carpet was replaced by white ceramic tiles. This was all done through the efforts of the Clark community and its chaplain, Fr. Jerome T. Narvasa. 

Today, Our Lady of Remedies Chapel serves as the chapel for the Philippine Air Force and the neighboring populations of Mabalacat and Angeles, Pampanga.
