Well-loved and highly respected parish priest of St. Joseph Church, the Reverend Fr. Andy Barcelo, was given an elegant birthday asalto with a red motif last September 11, 2012 at the Plaza Ballroom of Grand Astoria Hotel. He turned a year older, 47.

It was a thanksgiving party hosted by the Friends of Fr. Andy Barcelo. The doxology and birthday song was sung by the famous Zamboanga choral WMSU Jambangan. After the welcome remarks of Dr. Edwina Cabato, a special number was rendered by Sonia Garcia, Alma Natividad and Sara Baul. The hyper-dance and colorful dance number Conga led by Dr. Bernie Santiago was highly applauded by the guests.  Monsignor Cris Manugan and Monsignor Chito Araneta together with Alex Tipoe and , Nelida Atilano gave their best wishes and greetings to Fr. Andy

I was in the company of Dr. Cely Tan and Rey Yu King, Also seen enjoying the celebration were Titang Soliven, Evelyn Balbon, Baby delos Reyes, Cheng Marquez, Evelyn Lim, Nene Torres, and Yoly Natividad. Fr. Andy was overwhelmed with the shower of love shown to him that night. He thanked God for all the blessings he has received. More blessings to you, Fr. Andy, to come!
