San Fabian Parish hosts 2009 Vicariate III Christ the King Celebration
23 November. Most Rev. Renato P. Mayugba, DD, the Auxiliary Bishop of Lingayen-Dagupan announced to the faithful of the Vicariate of the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary during the Euhcaristic Celebration of the Solemnity of Christ the King held in St. Joseph the Patriach Parish, Mapandan, Pangasinan that the Parish of St. Fabian, Pope and Martyr, will host the 2009 Vicariate Christ the King celebration.
In 1951 and in 1977, the Parish of St. Fabian hosted the archdiocesan celebrations of Christ the King. The Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan was not yet divided into three ecclesiastical jurisdictions at that time. Prior to its division in 1985, the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan celebrated the solemnity as an archdiocesan celebration. After the 1985 division, creating the new Dioceses of Urdaneta and Alaminos, the Christ the King celebrations were held in the four vicariates of the archdiocese. The parish has hosted the vicariate celebrations in 1996 and in 2003.
