Father Kim Margallo of Tacloban in the central Philippines has expressed his gratitude for the support he received in the construction of the St. Josemaria Escriva Mission Station Church in the city.
“The construction is going on,” said the priest. “We have started the ground floor where the columbary is located,” he added.
To help finance the church construction, Father Margallo has been selling paintings, church vestments, and sculptures of statues done by local artists.
The St. Josemaria Escriva Mission Station Church will have several structures “that will facilitate the services” to be rendered by the Church.
It will also house the “first-class relic” of Spanish priest St. Josemaria Escriva.
The mission church launched its first pledging session through a donate-a-fence program in August 2018 while the construction of the main church started in December 2018.
Father Margallo, who already served three years in the mission church, said they need at least 200 million pesos to finish the project.
