On September 10, 11 and 12, our parish of La Santa Cruz de Pingtung - Taiwan had a triduum in preparation for the patronal feast. We had the Eucharist and different preachers every day: Fr. Luis Ángel Cuadrado, OP., preached about the interior healing, F. Dominic Nguyen, SBD., on youth ministry, and Fr. Sebastián Lee Sang Hoong, OP., on evangelization, respectively.

On Sunday, September 13, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross was solemnly celebrated with the Eucharist, it was presided over by Fr. Tomás Miguel Blázquez, OP., and concelebrated by Fr. Cristino Quipit, OP., and 160 faithful attended the Mass. The presentation of the offerings was made by aborigines of different ethnicities, settled decades ago in this city and parish. At the end of the Mass, the 20 members of the new parish council made their promises to render their apostolic service for the next two years and received the blessing of the Parish Priest as the current regulations of the Diocese of Kaohsiung instruct. Later, a fraternity meal was had in the patio of our house, enlivened by typical aboriginal dances and Karaoke songs.
