MSGR. Emmanuel V. Sunga
Immediate Past Parish Priest
2002- Jan 2011
Rev. Msgr. Emmanuel Suñga was not a stranger to St. Andrew the Apostle Parish when he came in 2002. Having regularly presided in Sunday masses here in the ‘80s and served as the Musical Director of the Bel-Air and Friends Choir since the time of then Msgr. Pelayo, Msgr. Suñga’s appointment was warmly embraced by the parishioners.
Under the guidance of our pastor, parish programs & activities continue to be expressions of St. Andrew’s preferential option for the poor, opportunities to nurture relationships, and instruments for evangelizing the community.
The creation of sub-parishes to strengthen unity and friendship in the villages; the re-launch of the Parish Renewal Experience program to enrich the parishioners’ relationships with their families, fellow Catholics, parish and the Church; the conduct of medical outreach at Isla Puting Bato in Manila; and the launching of the housing, feeding, and scholarship programs on November 30, 2005 all attest to the parish’s commitment to total self-renewal, discipleship and selfless life of sharing.
