STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR THE CANDIDACY OF LENI ROBREDO - KIKO PANGILINAN (CONGREGATION OF THE MISSION- PHILIPPINE PROVINCE)
"In this crucial time in the history of our country, we are faced once again with a challenge to be faithful to our vocation and mission of standing by, defending, and serving the poor, especially those in the peripheries. The coming elections of May 2022 is more than a choice between neutral contending candidates...
We, the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers have reflected on these issues in our recent annual retreat, have gathered in at least three virtual meetings, and made a clear choice of Vice-President LENI ROBREDO and Senator KIKO PANGILINAN as our candidates to support. We the members of the Provincial Council have also made our discernment and have come up with the same choice, based on the Catholic Social Teachings and our Vincentian values that we have expressed clearly. May I urge you to carefully read and circulate the Statement by sharing it among your friends and network."
