The St. Matthew Province, through the efforts of Fr. Ariel Tecson, RCJ, the Provincial Councilor on the Sector on Religious Life, Formation and Vocation Ministry, in coordination with the host-community of the Fr. Hannibal Formation Center in Parañaque City, headed by Fr. Ronaldo Paulino, RCJ, organized a Requiem Mass for Fr. Cesare Bettoni, RCJ. Fr. Cesare was a father, a mentor, a friend and a spiritual guide to many in the Philippines, particularly to his confreres in the Circumscription.
The liturgy on the evening of June 30, 2020 was participated in by the "masked and safely distanced" religious from the nearby communities, and was livestreamed for the online access of the rest of the Congregation, the members of the Family of the Rogate, and their friends and benefactors.
