I am Fr. Jomar Legaspi. I would to ask if you have the email address of Bishop Camilo Gregorio. I met him when I was assigned in Bacolod Boys Home during my first year of ordination. He was appointed bishop of Bacolod then. I appreciated very much his support when we transfered our Salesian Novitiate in Granada close to Bacolod Boys Home. I would greatly appreciate if you can share with me his current email add. I would like to touch base with him again. God Bless
