Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish: A Divine Gift

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish at Sitio Lomboy, Linambasan, Jamindan, Capiz

Six years ago, in 2012, a fulfilled Divine call took place for the groundbreaking of a mission station for the people of Linambasan and nearby Barangays in Jamindan. Hundreds of religious devotees flocked to this sanctuary to kneel and pray, give thanks, and receive blessings from the Divine: our God and in the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the Mother of Christ.

The year 2012, when humanity was intrigued by the end of the world prophesy, is the same year when a new beginning is about to start in a particular place Divinely chosen. The barangay of Linambasan; is one of the largest in the town of Jamindan and is home to strong family ties and religious people. It's just a few miles away from the capital barangay of Poblacion, where people used to celebrate the mass at the Parish of San Sebastian—building a new Parish bringing people closer to their homes.

The Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish is the 3rd in Jamindan after San Sebastian Parish and San Vicente Ferrer Parish. The first 2 Parishes are closer to the people's hearts and attract thousands of parishioners on their feast day. The newly established Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish would bring people closer to the Mother of Christ, our Lord and savior. When we cry for help, we cling to a mother, and she answers our needs. Just like when we call for a Divine Mother, we would hear our prayer and act on her intercession. The Divine Mother never fails to listen to her child, and she would bring us closer to her son, Jesus, the son of God.

It was on July 4, 2018, after six years of religious service, when Rev. Father John Denosta left the Parish he started. Sunday Thanksgiving: Graceful Service to The People is a tribute to his love and service to the people. From a mission station, he led the faithful to the new Parish, a bigger home and a beautiful sanctuary. The people revered his fellowship and will forever be grateful for his service.

Divine Light: Our God's Greatest Love
was showered when Lomboy Mission Station began. As a growing religious community, the spiritual service extends to neighboring barangays of Milan, Lucero, Igang, Agbun-od, Agloloway, Jaena Norte, Jaena Sur, and to Pasol-o, San Juan, and Ganzon.

When Fr. Denosta bid farewell, the parishioners welcomed another Reverent Father. The newly installed parish priest, Fr. Jeffrey Estrella, will continue serving the people. May the Divine love and light be showered upon him to be shared with the faithful and everyone seeking the spiritual refuge we call our religious sanctuary. It is for everyone and a Divine gift we need to protect and share.
