Lockdown depletes parish funds
By: Tina G. Santos - Philippine Daily InquirerMay 19,2020 - 07:27 AM


MANILA, Philippines — Quarantine restrictions to check the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) affect not only workers and businesses but also parishes that rely on collections during Mass.

Bishop Broderick Pabillo, Manila’s apostolic administrator, described as “tremendous” the financial impact of the lack of Mass collections on the parishes.

“Not only are there no Mass collections, we have to support our parish personnel. And many parishes shell out money to help the poor in their areas by giving [them] food,” he said.

Parishes help one another during crisis, Pabillo said. “Those who have resources help those who do not have enough,” he said.

The Archdiocese of Manila is now appealing for online donations. Its financial department will set up the fund-raising guidelines.

“All the parishes should be open to online donations, but the transparency and proper accounting of the donations should remain,” Pabillo said.


Gatherings

Several dioceses have suspended Masses and other religious activities because mass gatherings are prohibited in areas under enhanced community quarantine.

The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has allowed religious gatherings in areas under both modified enhanced and general community quarantines, but only with a limited number of people.

Balanga Bishop Ruperto Santos also acknowledged the huge financial impact of quarantine restrictions on parishes in his diocese.

He said the diocese had been using its funds to help those in need.

“The parishes are giving bags of groceries to those in the remote areas. The diocese also helps some barangay parishes, especially for the salaries of their personnel,” Santos said.

Fr. Cris Magbitang, administrator of Don Bosco Center of Studies, explained that churches have different sources of income “but a great deal of its financial existence are from the Mass collections and donations.”

“Other sacramental celebrations like blessings may add up, too,” he added, but he said that not all parishes use the arancel system, that is, charging people for some celebrations of the sacraments like baptism, first communion, confirmation, matrimony. “The quarantine [is] a big factor for this because there is less or not even an income enters the revenues of the parish church or school. Unless they get donations regularly, then they can answer for their operational expenses,” Magbitang said.


Proposals

Fr. Melvin Castro of the Diocese of Tarlac said parishes “totally [had] no incoming funds. But like the rest of the people and the faithful, we rely on the providence of God. And He is never failing. So much so, we are even able to help the poorer members.”Malacañang on Monday invited the Catholic Church to submit its proposals to the IATF.

“Almost all members of the IATF want to go to church already. We urge the Catholic Church to coordinate not only with local government units in implementing social distancing,” said presidential spokesperson Harry Roque.

He added: “Maybe the CBCP (Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines) can officially communicate with the IATF on how they plan to do this,” he added.

The Palace official made his remarks in response to Pabillo’s previous objections to the government’s order to limit attendance in religious gatherings.

Roque pointed out that Iglesia ni Cristo had already submitted a proposal to double the number of worship services at 50 percent capacity in order to enforce physical distancing.

The CBCP has released its guidelines on the conduct of liturgical activities amid the pandemic.

Spanish national in village fracas with Makati cop now facing deportation
By: Gabriel Pabico Lalu - Reporter / @GabrielLaluINQINQUIRER.net / 11:00 PM May 22, 2020


MANILA, Philippines – The Bureau of Immigration (BI) filed charges against a Spanish national who allegedly violated quarantine regulations inside the Dasmariñas Village in Makati City for overstaying and undesirability.

According to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente, the deportation charge has been officially filed against Javier Salvador Parra, who was seen in a viral video being accosted by a Makati police officer for leaving his property without a face mask and for badmouthing him. Prior to this, Parra allowed his maid water the plants outside the house without any face mask.

“Foreign nationals who are here in the country are expected to follow Philippine laws, especially in these special times wherein public health and safety is at risk,” Morente said in a statement on Friday.

“There is no exemption, whether you are living in a posh village, or in a slum area, you must obey the law,” he added.

Parra was seen in a video defending his house staff, who was accosted for allegedly not wearing any face mask while in public. The foreigner reasoned out that his female staff was within his property, but the police officer insisted that Parra was already outside his property’s perimeter.

The police officer, Senior Master Sergeant Roland Madrona, then proceeded to arrest Parra who allegedly cussed at him. Parra was taken down to the ground as Madrona was placing handcuffs on him.

Several personalities including Senator Win Gatchalian and former senator JV Ejercito urged the government to deport Parra, for being arrogant and to ensure that the incident would have no effect on the police officers’ morale.

Morente reminded foreigners that their stay in the Philippines is a privilege and not a right, therefore, they have to be respectful of persons in authority, like Madrona.

He also claimed that BI personnel investigated Parra’s case and found out that the latter is already overstaying in the Philippines.

“Aliens who disrespect symbols of our country and persons of authority are not welcome in the Philippines. Their sojourn here is a privilege, not a right. It is in the same manner that our kababayan who are living and working abroad respect the laws of their host country,” Morente explained.

“Upon investigation by our intelligence division, it was confirmed that he has failed to extend and has already overstayed his visa,” he added.

Morente also noted that Parra never replied to BI’s invitation for him to comment on the issue.

Galvez: Spike in infected OFWs seen, may become part of 2nd wave
By: Julie M. Aurelio - Reporter / @JMAurelioINQPhilippine Daily Inquirer / 05:05 AM May 23, 2020


The ongoing repatriation of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) may lead to a spike in new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in the county and may end up in a second wave of the pandemic, the chief implementer of the ad hoc agency tasked with containing the spread of the virus warned on Friday.

“What we’re seeing now is the possible spike of cases in some areas because of the importaton of transmission, due to the big influx of arriving OFWs,” Carlito Galvez Jr. said during the Laging Handa briefing of the National Task Force Against COVID-19.

“We are receiving more than 30,000 OFWs,” Galvez said. “That’s what we’re looking at, that we might have a possible second wave.”

Hardest-hit countries
He noted the returning OFWs were coming from countries that were among the most affected by the pandemic, like the United States, Italy, Spain and parts of the Middle East.

But Galvez said “we are so happy that out of the 30,000 OFWs that were tested, we only had more or less 600 who tested positive.”

The government is expecting an additional 42,000 OFWs to arrive in June.

Meanwhile, about 4,000 OFWs in the United Arab Emirates have been affected by the government’s restrictions on incoming flights.

Despite his concern about a possible second wave, Galvez reaffirmed Malacañang’s earlier pronouncement that the Philippines was still dealing with its “first wave” of coronavirus infections.

“We think we are still in the first wave, and we see that this first wave is from local infections,” he said.
