25 September 2009 – San Fabian. The work on the repainting of the church of the Parish of St. Fabian began last Monday, 21 September. The repainting is being done in preparation for the Vicariate III (Queen of the Most Holy Rosary) Christ the King celebration. The Parish of St. Fabian is the host parish.
In 2003, when the parish hosted the Vicariate III celebration of the solemnity of Christ the King, the belfry was restored and constructed. At that time, the facade of the parish church was painted.
The repainting will also include the inside of the church. The ceiling and the walls of the church are in need of repairs. In 2008, at the height of Typhoon Cosme, the roof of the parish church was destroyed by the strong winds. The rectory suffered the same destruction. Even today, the dirt and streaks of dirty water could be seen on the walls and ceiling of the church.
Engr. Santiago Alhambra is supervising the work. Mr. Pipoy Ferraro is contracted by the parish to paint the facade and the inside of the church.

A Primer on the resignation of Archbishop Oscar V. Cruz and the appointment of Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas as Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan
1. Why the change in leadership?
The above change in leadership is explained by a provision of the Second Vatican Council which earnestly requests diocesan bishops to resign from their office, if on account of advanced age or form any grace cause they become less able to carry out their duties (1). In implementing this provision of the Council, the code of Canon Law asks diocesan bishops to tender their resignation upon completing their seventy fifth year (2).
2. Who appoints and accepts the resignation of bishops?
As a matter of principle, Canon Law prescribes that for a resignation to take effect, it must be accepted by the authority which is competent to provide for the office in question. (3) Hence, the resignation of a resigning bishop, in this case, Archbishop Cruz, was accepted by the Supreme Pontiff who has the authority to appoint bishops. (4)
3. What becomes of the bishop who resigned?
A bishop whose resignation from office has been accepted acquire the title "emeritus" of his diocese. (5) If he so wishes he may have residence in the diocese. (6) Furthermore, the diocese which he served has the obligation to provide for the upkeep of a bishop who has resigned. (7)
4. When does the new bishop assume his new office?
One who is promoted a bishop, in this case the succeeding bishop, Archbishop Villegas, cannot yet exercise the office entrusted to him until he has taken canonical possession of the diocese. (8) "Canonical possession," popularly called "installation", denotes the formal act by which the bishop assumes full governance of the diocese. A bishop who is already consecrated must take possession within two (2) months after receiving the notice of his appointment.
5. How does the new bishop take canonical possession of his diocese?
A bishop takes canonical possession of his diocese when he shows the apostolic letter of his appointment to the diocesan Board of Consultors, in the presence of the chancellor of the curia who makes a record of the fact. The canonical possessionmust take place in the diocese. (10) and the law strongly recommends that it be performed with a liturgical act in the cathedral church, in the presence of the clergy and the people. (11)
1. Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, Decree on the Pastoral Ministry of Bishops, Christus Dominus, n. 21:
2. CIC, Can. 401, 1:As the pastoral office of bishops is so important and onerous, diocesan bishops and others whose juridical position corresponds to theirs are earnestly requested to resign from their office if on account of advanced age or from any other grave cause they become less able to carry out their duties. This they should do on their own initiative or when invited to do so by the competent authority. If the competent authority accepts the resignation it will make provision for the suitable support of those who have retired and for the special rights to be accorded to them.
A diocesan Bishop who has completed his seventy-fifth year of age is requested to offer his resignation from office to the Supreme Pontiff, who, taking all the circumstances into account, will make provision accordingly.4. CIC, Can. 377, 1::
The Supreme Pontiff freely appoints Bishops or confirms those lawfully elected.5 and 6 .CIC, Can. 402, 1:
A Bishop whose resignation from office has been accepted, acquires the title 'emeritus' of his diocese. If he so wishes, he may have a residence in the diocese unless, because of special circumstances in certain cases, the Apostolic See provides otherwise.7. CIC, Can. 402, 2:
The Episcopal Conference must ensure that suitable and worthy provision is made for the upkeep of a Bishop who has resigned, bearing in mind the primary obligation which falls on the diocese which he served.8. CIC, Can. 382, 2:
A person who is promoted to the episcopate cannot become involved in the exercise of the office entrusted to him before he has taken canonical possession of the diocese. However, he is able to exercise offices which he already held in the same diocese at the time of his promotion, without prejudice to can. 409 §29. CIC, 382, 2:
Unless he is lawfully impeded, one who is not already consecrated a Bishop and is now promoted to the office of diocesan Bishop, must take canonical possession of his diocese within four months of receiving the apostolic letters. If he is already consecrated, he must take possession within two months of receiving the apostolic letters.10. CIC, Can. 382,3:
A Bishop takes canonical possession of his diocese when, personally or by proxy, he shows the apostolic letters to the college of consultors, in the presence of the chancellor of the curia, who makes a record of the fact. This must take place within the diocese. In dioceses which are newly established he takes possession when he communicates the same letters to the clergy and the people in the cathedral church, with the senior of the priests present making a record of the fact.11. CIC, Can. 382,4:
It is strongly recommended that the taking of canonical possession be performed with a liturgical act in the cathedral church, in the presence of the clergy and the people

Archbishop Oscar V. Cruz, DD succeeded Msgr. Federico G. Limon upon the retirement of the latter. He has served the Archdiocese for almost two decades with integrity, pastoral charity and commitment to social justice.
According to the CBCPNews online, Archbishop Cruz said “the first thought that came to my mind upon knowing of the change of my ecclesiastical status is to thank the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.”
“The reason is it’s her birthday anniversary today,” he said.
In the same report, he was quoted to have said that "he is most grateful to the clergy, the religious and the laity in the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan, “for being very patient with me and understanding.”
He said the clergy, religious and laity “were able to bear with me for about two decades and that is to their credit.”
