Balanga Bishop Ruperto Santos called Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the Middle East as ‘Outstanding Faith Witnesses’.

Santos is currently on his pastoral visit to Jordan and Lebanon. He said that OFWs always tried to find ways to practice their faith and go to church.

“Our OFWs here in Jordan usually gather at the Our Lady of the Annunciation Church at 12 noon every Friday or at the Saint Joseph Church for the 11:30 a.m. Sunday mass,” he said.

The Catholic Bishop also acknowledged the holy masses being held at Labor offices.

“Holy mass is also held at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office-Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (POLO-OWWA) office every Thursday at 7 p.m. with dinner together with the sheltered OFWs,” Santos added.

The Bishop encouraged believers to continue practicing their faith and turn to God whenever life overseas gets rough.

“We come to tell you that you are loved. Our Church cares for you. You are a blessing to all of us. With your sacrifices and services here in Jordan, the lives of your loved ones back home are much better and so much brighter. And with your dedication to your work and devotion to God, you have shown the Filipinos’ true character, that is, God fearing, honest, and hardworking. Thank you so much for being outstanding faith witnesses,” he added.
