Today, 15 June 2014, we are currently celebrating the 600 likes in the official Facebook page of Barasoain Church. In almost a year, the Facebook page has delivered not only important announcements but also reflected the feedback and the inquiries of the people with the parish. Since its launch, there have been very notable posts in the page which we may or may not remember anymore.
We are now inviting everyone to join us in a walk down to the memory lane when we go back to revisit the page’s Top 5 most memorable posts:
Senakulo 2014 Video on YouTube

Apparently rains have contributed to the massive uptake to the Parish Commission on Youth and Teatro Barasoain’s annual Senakulo presentation. The PCY conducted two presentations of their passion play: one in Malolos and the other one in Balagtas. However, only the one in Balagtas was presented due to the problems faced during the Malolos presentation.

The parish joined the rest of the Diocese of Malolos in greeting the Most Rev. Bishop Jose Oliveros on his 14th anniversary of ordination last 20 March 2014. It can be inferred that the idea to greet the bishop through the social media began with the Facebook page of San Isidro de Labrador Parish in Bulakan, Bulacan.
The new official Barasoain Church logo
Reach: 1 406; Likes: 70; Shares: 9; Comments: 8
The new parish logo was officially unveiled to the world in the acquaintance party held on 29 December 2013. The entire logo was designed by Msgr. Mario Arenas last December 2013 and was finished on 27 December. However, the logo began circulation on days before the official unveiling. There has been a considerable reaction with the logo, most agreeing while some reserving their opinions. At present, the logo is still currently used officially on transactions with the parish. This post was the first to reach a thousand views in the Facebook page.
Tribute to Father Mario Mendiola

Another tribute, this time to the last attached priest of Barasoain Church, Fr. Mario Mendiola. He became the attached priest of Barasoain Church from 2011-2013. His passing marked the formulation of mourning protocols on Facebook page and official website of the parish. He is best remembered for giving long but comedic homilies. What may have made this post memorable is the fact that he is smiling, a distant picture from the suffering he was experiencing due to his illness.

The passing of Monsignor Mario Arenas was considered as the watershed moment of the Facebook page. Not only it drove people to flock to the website and to the Facebook page but people also shared their experiences and photos with the late rector of the parish. What made these posts greater is the fact that everything occurred in quick succession, so quick that the people were surprised with his sudden passing. Some were only able know the news through the page.
