Message by Cebu Archbishop Jose S. Palma DD

It is my great honor to invite and welcome all of you, my brother Bishops and Priests, to the National Retreat for Priests 2023, to be hosted by the Archdiocese of Cebu.

After having concluded the celebrations for the 500 Years of Christianity in the Philippines, we now turn to once again to
the Lord as we continue with this Synodal journey, in deepening and spreading the Faith that we have received.

It is in this light that we spend
these days of retreat and reflection on the
Priesthood and the call to holiness.

It is my prayer that you journey with us in this NRP 2023, and that these days be helpful, meaningful, and fruitful, as we carry on with joy in our priestly ministry.
