Army inaugurates new chapel in Tarlac camp

Most Rev. Leopoldo S. Tumulac, the Military Bishop, Military Ordinate of the Philippines, led the inauguration of the St. Vincent Ferrer Chapel inside this camp, followed by a thanksgiving mass, the anointment of the new altar, and the designation of Cpt. Joven L. Caycong of the Chaplain Service, as the chapel's first post chaplain.


Lt. Gen. Eduardo M Año, the Army Commanding General, witnessed the ceremonies and led the unveiling of the marker of the new camp facility.

The chapel was built to serve as venue to provide religious services and worship, pastoral care and ministration, and moral education to the personnel, dependents, and students of the Army's Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).

Maj. Gen. Ivan Samarita, the outgoing commander of TRADOC, expressed his thanks to the Army commander for his efforts in building the chapel.

St. Vincent is the TRADOC's patron saint. He is known as the patron saint of builders because of his fame for "building up" and strengthening the church, his preaching, missionary works and teachings. St. Vincent became a member of the Order of St. Dominic (Spain) in 1375. #
