Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish - Maluso

Parish Assembly

A parish assembly was held last August 2, 2009 at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish-Maluso in preparation for the Pastoral Assembly of the Prelature of Isabela which is organized every six years. The event was the culmination of the series of evaluations, consultations and planning held in the previous months. Forty participants attended the gathering: lay leaders of the Basic Ecclesial Communities, the
Kaabags, members of the Parish Pastoral Council, all leaders of different parish organizations, the Parish Youth Council, sisters of the Daughters of Charity, Fr. Dennis G. Tamayo, CMF, and Sr. Ruth Diaz, SFIC, Pastoral Coordinator of the Prelature of Isabela.
The hallmark of the assembly is the revision of the parish’s Vision-Mission and the planning for the next three years (2009- 012).The revised Vision-Mission of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, Maluso, Basilan is as follows: “As sons and daughters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we envision a Christcentered community of believers and a Church of the Poor journeying in peace, harmony and love with fellow Christians, Muslims and Samal Bajaus for integral human development in a well cared environment. We commit ourselves to nurture our Marian devotion and to work for holistic evangelization, dialogue of cultures, and justice, peace and care for environment.” There were also discussions and plans in preparation for the 50th anniversary of the parish in 2012.

Parish Fiesta

The parish celebrated last August 22 the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which follows the old date instituted by Pope Pius XII in 1944 before it was moved by Pope Paul VI in 1969. Despite the rumors and threats of violent attack, all the parish activities for the fiesta celebration were carried out with the support of the lay leaders, the Marine Battalion Landing Team 1, PNP, CAFGU and the rest of the volunteers.


Youth Vigil in Honor of Mary

Aside from the Triduum mass in preparation for the birthday of our Blessed Mother, the youth, together with Sr. Lily Ventura, DC, organized a vigil in honor of the Virgin Mary last Sept 7, 2009. Around 200 youth and parishioners joined the vigil. A creative scriptural rosary and dance presentations thrilled the youth while the sharing of Bro. Jojo, Bro. Sandy and other youth on their Marian devotion
enriched the participants.
