As we waited for the next Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Patrick Jay Parce continued religious services as the Parish Administrator until November 2022. He actively called on the Parishioners to support the construction of some sections of the church building which he had accomplished.

About six months after the passing of Rev. Fr. Estrella, the Parish finally had its 3rd Parish Priest installed on November 27, 2022, in the name of Rev. Fr. Harold Funa. He was warmly welcomed by the Parishioners and he inspired everyone with his humility and grace. I may not have met him personally since I now live away from home, but I follow his ministry to the Parish through social media. His great personality appealed to everyone to become closer to the church and give the highest service to God.

In his nearly 2 years of service in the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Lomboy, he made several transformations in the way we live; our hope and faith in the Divine Power, love, and light.

I express my utmost respect and admiration for him for impacting our lives through his greatest accomplishments in such a brief period until his farewell in July 2024, as he embarked on his mission to another Church in a neighboring town.

Since 2012, I have seen the great transformation of the church; from Mission Station which was started by Rev. Fr. John Denosta until it became established as a Parish on January 13, 2018. 

Today, the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish - Lomboy proudly unveiled its transformed structure and appearance under the guidance of Rev. Fr. Funa who continues to lead the way in bringing about positive change. This magnificent church stands not only as a blessed home but also as a Divine sanctuary for religious and spiritual service for our faithful congregations of Parishioners. 

Together, we are fostering a community of devoted religious servants and leaders who will guide our path to righteousness and spirituality. Rev. Fr. Funa taught us that through our acts of sharing, giving, and love, we uplift our lives; we help transform our community. And we remain steadfast in dedicating our utmost service to the Parish for the greater glory of God and his Divinity.

We will be forever grateful for what we have accomplished because of our shared commitment to our religious community. Our Parish Priests will be there to help build and strengthen the church and it's our religious responsibility to protect and uphold its glory.

We continue to pray for them and support their mission as they help us draw closer to God; find our purpose and live a meaningful life. 

The Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish - Lomboy will persist in its transformation today and in the years to come, serving as an enduring symbol of love, a beacon of hope, a life of positivity, and a glorious Divine light.
