Group photo after a cordial visit November 18, 2014 to the Our Lady of Victories Church of the Society of St. Pius X. In the picture are Mr. Robertson Poblete (President CFD Manila), Fr. Thomas Onoda, Fr. Carlos Reyes (CBCP-ECID & MEIFA), Fr. Allan Nely (Assistant to the Superior General of the Society), Fr. Emerson Salvador, Fr. Michael Fortin, Bro. Andre Demafelis, Bro. Hyacinth Pereño.
Fr. Nely was present in the September 23, 2014 meeting between Bishop Fellay and Cardinal Muller.
We also learned that Bishop Williamson is no longer with the Society. Although our relations with the Society do not fall under the competence of CBCP-ECID, I believe that reaching out to the Society falls under my obligation as a Catholic priest. Some canonical issues were taken up during the meeting. I will refer those matters to CBCP President Abp. Socrates Villegas and Cardinal Orlando Quevedo, head of the CBCP Doctrine of the Faith.
