Pnoy meets Fr. Avel Smile of the Week

14 Mar

Father Avelino Sapida, Filipino Personal Parish priest of Barcelona,  has had a very good reason to smile these past weeks as he was received by none other than the top man of our country, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III, last February 16, 2011 at Malacañang. This visit came just after Fr. Avel was given a citation in Congress for his award in Barcelona last December 18, 2010, the Premi Consell d’Immigració. This award honours Father Avel’s 25 years of untiring service to the Filipino migrant community in Barcelona. In the photo (from left) Thezz Saulog, Fr.

    Fr. Avel deserves the highest honor and merits for his unending and tireless service to the Filipino community especially in Barcelona. Mabuhay Fr. Avel! Sanay bigyan nga siya ng pagpapahalaga ng Philippine government, he really deserves it.

    Like Fr. Avel, YOU also deserve recognition for your service to the Filipino community in Barcelona.
    Mabuhay po kayo! Maraming salamat po sa pagbisita at pag-iwan ng komentaryo!
