On July 22, 2023, The Diocese of Antipolo installed its new shepherd, Most Rev. Ruperto Cruz Santos, D.D. as he starts his voyage to sow during the Liturgical Rite of Reception and the Canonical Installation of the Fifth Bishop of Antipolo.
Ad Seminandum” (To Sow), as the main motto of the installation, came from the many parables that Jesus used to present to them an image of everyday life to eventually make them understand the mystery of the Kingdom of God. The majority of Bishop Santos’ ministry has been with formation, teaching, and preaching—in the parish, the seminary, and foreign lands.
In his installation on July 22, 2023, led by Archbishop Charles John Brown, he started his homily by expressing gratitude to all the people witnessing the canonical installation. Bishop Santos then vowed to be a ‘servant’ to the church—kaisa, katuwang, and katulong.
As he concludes his first homily as the Bishop of Antipolo, he says: “I come to you here not as someone powerful. Here I am, like you, one with you, a partner with you in the work of the Lord.
Our Lady of Peace School opens its doors to our dear clergy, media, guests, and friends as part of the school’s transcending mission in committing to actively participate in parish and community activities and projects and be one with the Antipolensis, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Antipolo, and The Antipolo Cathedral in successfully staging a momentous occasion.
