BACOLOD - A total of 135 priests in the Diocese of Bacolod joined the annual Renewal of Vows for priesthood on Maundy Thursday.

Bishop Patricio Buzon presided over the ceremony and challenged the priests to remain faithful followers of Christ.

The renewal of vows was followed by the consecration of Chrism, the oil used by the priest during sacraments of baptism. This is part of the yearly Maundy Thursday activity of every Diocese before the end of the liturgical year.
