Vatican decides on Fr. Boy Celis’ request

Father Joenick Territorio of the Jaro Archdiocese on Monday said the Vatican has already released its decision on the request of Fr. Espiridon “Boy” Celis Jr. to allow him to stay as parish priest of Saint Anne’s Parish in Molo district, Iloilo City. He, however, refused to divulge the decision as he was not authorized to do so.  In November last year, Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo ordered Celis to transfer to Saint Anthony’s Parish in the town of Barotac Nuevo.IMT
