As a new decade is ushered, BCBP Manila joyfully welcomed its 6th chapter head, Bro. Joey and Sis.Vina De Jesus.
BCBP National President, Bro. Joffe Almoro and wife, Sis. May Almoro, led the installation rites last December 14, 2019, in a simple 2-in-1 celebration coinciding with the chapter’s Christmas Party at The Bayview Park Hotel Manila, BCBP Manila’s breakfast venue for the past year.
Outgoing Chapter Head Bro. Bong San Agustin expressed his gratitude for the almost six years of dedicated leadership which saw the chapter flourish in membership.

Thereafter, Area Managing Director for Metro Manila, Bro. Pancho Jamlig and Regional Council Director Bro. Jojo Pabalan proceeded with the installation rites of Bro. Joey and Sis. Vina together with BCBP Manila’s Governance Team, namely, Bro. Edward and Sis. Helen Kilakiga as Mission Director; Bro. Allwin Wagan as Programs and Services Director; Bro. John Trocio as Formation Director; Bro. Bong and Sis. Bing Rivera as Family Life Director; Bro. Bong and Sis. Jes San Agustin as Unit Leader 1; Bro. Gary and Sis. Marie Casanova as Unit Leader 2; and Sis. Cho Calseña as Chapter Treasurer.
