“The Archbishop met with his pastors…to discuss the preparations of the Jubilee celebrations…and the financial summary of the Archdiocesan Annual Appeal.” (See copy of full article at the end of this post).
Adrian appears to have forgotten the letter he wrote to Fr. Mike Crisostomo (though he had Apuron sign it) in which he stated the reason for the meeting (which included NOTHING about the Jubilee):
"Dear Fr. Mike....The results (of the Appeal) are not favorable…Please meet with me on Wednesday, June 10, at 3:00p.m., at the Chancery Office. We will discuss how the AAA was organized at your parish, what strategies were taken to promote the appeal to the people, and what we can do to mer your parish’s suggested goal."
“From July 2014 to May 2015, only 26% of the amount collected for the AAA went to the Redemptoris Mater Seminary….It is false to say that all the monies collected by the AAA goes to the Redemptoris Mater Seminary.”
“Seminarians (at RMS) are trained for ministry in the Church, they are not trained for the Neocatechumenal way as was falsely noted.”
“But, the priest is also to have solicitude for the missions as well. He may also request of his bishop to be sent to a legitimate mission in another country where there is a need for priests.”
