Last August 22 (6pm) was the first mass celebrated by our newly ordained priest, Rev. Fr. Lucio Arellano, FMVD. This was held at the Verbum Dei Apostolate Center, Good Shepherd Road, Banawa Hills, Cebu City . This was exactly 7 days after his ordination last August 15 at the Maria Della Strada Parish, Diliman Quezon City.
After the mass was a simple "salo-salo" (dinner) with everyone who attended. Then a short program was organized in the conference hall with some presentations from the members of the Verbum Dei family.
Here are the videos of the homily and some important moments of the mass and the program afterwards.

Our apologies for those who were not able to view the live streaming of the event via Ustream. We did our best to have it done at the venue but due to some technical difficulties (i.e. no internet connection at the venue), it wasn't possible. Fortunately we had to do plan B which is to record some of the important moments of the event.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. See below for the link of the videos uploaded to Youtube.
