Mahinog Municipal Council thanks Fr. Scott Escanilla for parish service

Rev. Fr. Ismael Scott N. Escanilla

IN A motion presented by Councilor Liberato E. Babanto and unanimously approved by all members, the Municipal Council here passed a resolution commending and thanking Rev. Fr. Ismael Scott N. Escanilla, SSJV for his outstanding leadership, performance and selfless dedication as parish priest of the St. Michael Archangel Parish of Mahinog, Camiguin.

After three years as parish priest in Mahinog, Camiguin, Rev. Fr. Ismael Scott N. Escanilla will be transferred to St. Joseph the Worker Parish of Salay, Misamis Oriental.

The reassignment was due to the reshuffling of all priests in the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro.

Fr. Scott, as he is fondly called, is credited for his numerous accomplishments now serving as legacies of his stint in Mahinog.

These are the fencing of the right side of the convent including the renovation of the kitchen and rooms, the repair of priest’s room, and the improvement of church floor tiles.

Also to his credit is the body repair of priest service vehicle Suzuki Samurai, construction of keyboard wooden casing, and purchase of one unit Sumo generator set.

The latest to be inaugurated among his big projects is the construction of the new formation center and construction of spandrel ceiling inside the church.

According to the resolution, local officials noted the dynamism of the partnership and cooperation between the local government and the Roman Catholic church under the helm of Fr. Scott as Parish Priest.

The resolution put a premium on the fact that apart from the imposing structural development he helped establish, parishioners also acknowledged Fr. Scott’s significant contribution to the spiritual, social and civic development of the parish and the municipality.

The resolution was signed by Vice Mayor Rogerio C. Acle and approved by Mayor Alex R. Jajalla.

Mahinog has new priest now in the person of Fr. Pete Ubalde, SSJV.
