Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish: A Divine Gift

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

It was 6 years ago in year 2012 when a Divine calling was fulfilled for the groundbreaking of a mission station for the people of Linambasan and nearby Barangays in Jamindan. Hundreds of religious devotees flocked on this sanctuary to kneel and pray, to give thanks and to 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 with an end of the world prophesy is also the same year when a new beginning was founded in a special place that is Divinely chosen. The barangay of Linambasan; one of the largest in the town of Jamindan and a home to strong family ties and religious people. It's just few miles away from the capital barangay of Poblacion where people used to celebrate the mass at the Parish of San Sebastian. Now that a new Parish was built, it brings people closer to their home.

The Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish is the 3rd in the town of Jamindan after San Sebastian Parish and San Vicente Ferrer Parish. The first 2 Parishes are closer to the hearts of the people and attracts thousands of parishioners on its 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 would answer our needs. Just like when we call for a Divine Mother, she would hear our prayer and act on her intercession. The Divine Mother never fails to hear her child and she would bring us closer to her son, Jesus the son of God.

It was on July 4, 2018, after 6 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 was able to lead the faithful to the new Parish; a bigger home and a beautiful sanctuary. His fellowship was revered by the people and they will forever be grateful for his service.

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

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