While there is a concept of a “separation of the church and state”, it remains equally important that there are united efforts between the two.
In his message during the Disco Derby, Mayor Oscar “Richard” S. Garin, Jr said that both, the local government and the church “are trying our best to unite the people of Miagao”.
“We can never attain success kang simbahan man ukon gobyerno without united efforts. Indi lang kang mga opisyal, kundi kang bilog guid nga pumuluyo,” said Mayor Garin.
Mayor Garin was with the church officials for a dinner during the Feast of St. Thomas of Villanova.
“Basic commodity ang pag-irimaway. Salamat sa friendship, pag irimaway kang banwa kag simbahan,” he concluded.
