Archbishop J. Michael Miller installed several new members of the Council for Filipino Catholic Associations during a solemn ceremony in Vancouver April 5.

He called these ministry leaders a "great blessing to our local Church." The associations are headed by the archdiocese's coordinator for Filipino Ministry, Deacon Greg Barcelon.

"The Filipino associations are a source of enrichment for the Church, raised up by the Spirit for evangelizing different areas and sectors of Catholic life," Archbishop Miller said at Mass.

"You bring a new and much-needed evangelizing fervour, which renews all of us."
