Confreres, friends and benefactors gathered once more at the Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque City, on July 24, 2018, in remembrance of the 8th death anniversary of Fr. Joseph Aveni. Fr. Ulrich Gacayan presided over the Eucharistic celebration, stressing during his homily how in his priesthood, Fr. Aveni found a personal way to live God's call in sanctity. The liturgy was followed by short program, during which testimonies about personal experiences of the beloved priest were read and shared. Fr. Jessie Martirizar gave as well some updates on the initiatives to formally open the cause for the eventual canonization of Fr. Aveni, and the long process before such Church recognition of sainthood is granted, if God so will it.
