- St. Therese Lahug
- The Parish of St. Therese of the Child Jesus in Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines is undergoing a major renovation due to depreciation of its structure that makes it unsafe for devotees and parishioners to fuflill their daily and Sunday Mass obligations. Also the present church capacity can no longer accomodate mass goers that fill up to its adjacent streets. His Eminence, Cardinal Vidal, Cebu Archbishop, has encouraged us on this endeavor. At present, half of the existing church has already been demolished and the foundations for the new altar and its big dome is underway. Engr. Joseph Yu, in-charge of the church plan and construction estimates the project cost at 43 Million of which only 4 million was obtained from local donatons. Much is yet to be done. With the intercession of St. Therese, her parish in Lahug, Cebu City, pray as we ask for help from devotees in the other parts of the world to help us in our church project. We believe that Jesus' "Little Flower" will touch your generous hearts to support the constuction project of her parish. Yours in Christ Jesus, Rev. Fr. ROLANDO T. MANAYON, Moderator, Team of Pastors

I am writing to introduce and endorse the construction project of the Team of Pastors and the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) of St. Therese Parish in Lahug, Cebu City.
The group has conceptualized the construction of a new parish church due to the growing number of parishioners and devotees of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. Hence, they would like to request your generous assistance.
Convinced of the benefit this project would bring to the Church in general and to the parishioners of Lahug in particular, I would like to reiterate my endorsement of the said project for your financial support. God, who is never outdone in generosity, will surely reward your kindheartedness.
May God bless you for your collaboration. As I thank you in advance for your kind attention, I wish to impart to you my paternal blessing and assure you of my humble prayers and remain
Sincerely in the Lord,
(SGD)+RICARDO J. CARDINAL VIDAL
Archbishop of Cebu
