St Nicolas day in Manila

Many years to Deacon Nikolas Salgado, Nikolas Canopen and Nikolas Balingit!
These days we are praying for victims of super typhoon Odette. The wind with gusts up to 315 km/h devastated the island of Siargao – the second most popular among tourists; destroyed most of the islands of Bohol, Cebu, Palawan, etc. Thousands of missing, at least a hundred dead. A mini-hotel on Cebu Island, where we recently celebrated the Divine Liturgy, and some houses of our parishioners on Mindanao Island were also destroyed.
