Hundreds of mourners turned out to pay their last respects to their monsignor at his funeral, on what would have been his 85th birthday, at the St. Joseph the Worker Cathedral in Tagbilaran City on Thursday, June 25, 2020.

Msgr. Orencio “Orie” Daral Jubac, resident priest of St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church in Jagna town, passed away at 3:45 a.m. on Sunday, June 21, three days before his 85th birthday on June 24.

Msgr. Orie stayed on as prelate after the mandatory retirement age of 75 until he served as resident priest of the parish. He was a servant-priest for 59 years.

The funeral mass officiated by Bishop Abet Uy was attended by family, friends and priests from the dioceses of Tagbilaran and Talibon.

As precautionary measures, they wore facial masks and observed physical distancing during the mass.

The prelate was buried at the Necropolis near the Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary in Barangay Taloto, Tagbilaran City.

Bishop Uy described Msgr. Orie in his homily during the funeral Mass as “one of a kind”, a “father,” a “brother” and a “friend.”

“Nasinati nato ni Msgr. Orie ang gugma sa usa ka amahan, igsuon, higala nga talagsaon. Sa ginagmay apan daghan nga paagi nasinati nato ni Msgr. Orie ang kasingkasing sa Diyos,” said Bishop Uy who also served as parish priest at St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church in Jagna town before his appointment as bishop.

We will miss you and your radiant, genuine smile!
