Fire in Pasil Barangay, Cebu (FIS)


By Joint SC-YM Team


Cebu, the Philippines, 14 January 2018 -- In the afternoon hours of Sunday, January 14 erupted rather strong fire in Barangay Pasil (three Sitios were affected: Riverside, Maharlika and Lawis). Sitio Lawis is located just on the left side of our Don Bosco Youth Center. With a general fire alarm in Cebu the firefighters were able to bring after 3 hours the fire under control. Total (official, minimum) toll of the fire: 3260 persons, 634 families and 283 houses affected (majority completely burnt out). Apparently four people died in the fire. Apart of the heavily populated housing also the San Roque chapel was razed completely, while a large portion of Don Bosco Youth Training center was damaged.


The Salesians are present in Barangay Pasil for past 50+ years with the Parish of St. Nino (population of 50.000), Youth Center - Oratory, Vocation Training Center and variety of social services to the local population. At present there is a five confreres strong community (Rector Fr. Jun Paradiang). Although the fire destroyed also parts of our community house and Don Bosco Youth Center, our confreres are safe (refuge in the building of St. Nino Parish) and open the large DBYC facilities for the families who lost everthing as their shelter). Other residents who lost their houses from fire are staying in nearby Pasil Gym, and the Pasil elementary school.


The Youth Ministry Commission of the FIS Province (Fr. Joriz Calsa) started immediately organize the emergency relief and the Facebook appeal with many videos and photos brought immediate answer from other 7 Salesian communities and Salesian Family in Cebu. The Salesians of Pasil are grateful for your prayer and sympathy. The emergency relief and rebuilding of nearby houses and the SDB community will start soon, hopefully also with your help!


Don Bosco Pasil community is located very close to the Basilica of Santo Nino, Cebu. During these day the whole city is preparing for the Fiesta of Senyor Santo Nino - Sinulog Festival (January 21) and even the fire will not prevent everybody to celebrate the main Patron Feast.


Very meaningful remains the photo of intact Don Bosco Statue in front of the Pasil DBYC. Yes, Don Bosco will never leave Pasil and his Salesian will continue to journey with the local population in spite of all odds.

    Don Bosco Pasil affected by Fire

    January 14, 2017, Cebu - Philippines. Fire broke out at 12: 26 PM, just about 600 meters where Don Bosco Youth and Training Center, Pasil stood. Barangay (village) Pasil is one of the poorest and heavily populated sections of Cebu City. It took more than two hours for the firefighters to control the conflagration. Fire fighters declared the fire under control by 2:54 p.m. Sunday. Four people have been presumed dead.

    Total (official, minimum) toll of the fire: 3260 persons, 634 families and 283 houses affected (majority completely burnt out). Apparently four people died in the fire. A portion of Don Bosco Youth Training center was damaged – the rooms of some of the Salesians, their private chapel and the roof of the rectory and training center.

    The Salesians have been working in this place for about 50 years, administering the Parish of St. Nino (population of 50.000), Youth Center - Oratory, Vocation Training Center and variety of social services to the local population.

    The Rector Fr. Lamberto Paradiang SDB together with four other Salesians who were present during the blaze had to evacuate. They took refuge in the building of St. Nino Parish. They are now back supervising relief and assistance efforts to the fire victims and have opened the Youth Center facilities to the families who lost everything.

    The SALVO team of Fr. Arvin Abatayo, SDB and the Youth Ministry Commission of the FIS Province under Fr. Joriz Calsa, SDB have started to organize the emergency assistance and have released appeals via social media.

    The Salesians of Pasil are grateful for everyone’s prayers and support. The rebuilding of nearby houses and the SDB community will start soon, hopefully also with your help!

    (Cebu, Phippines – 15.01.2018) – Vào buổi chiều ngày hôm qua, Chúa Nhật 14/01/2018, một cơn hỏa hoạn khủng khiếp đã xảy ra tại khu dân cư Barangay, gần Trung tâm Trẻ Don Bosco. Ngọn lửa cũng lây lan sang khu Riverside, Maharlika và khu Lawis. Khu Lawis nằm sát Trung tâm trẻ Don Bosco của các anh em Salêdiêng. Sau khi thành phố phát còi hụ báo động, lính cứu hỏa đã có mặt tại hiện trường và sau 3 tiếng đồng hồ, họ đã khống chế được ngọn lửa hoàn toàn. Theo báo cáo, cho đến nay đã có 4 người chết. Hơn 3.200 người bị ảnh hưởng do mất hết nhà cửa và 283 ngôi nhà đã bị thiêu rụi hoàn toàn. Toàn bộ khu San Roque với những ngôi nhà san sát nhau đã bị thiêu rụi, trong đó có một ngôi nhà thờ. Trung tâm trẻ Don Bosco ở gần đó cũng bị thiệt hại phần nào, nhưng không đáng kể.

    Các anh em Sa-lê-diêng đã hiện diện tại Barangay Pasil hơn 50 năm qua. Tại đây, anh em phụ trách một giáo xứ với hơn 50 ngàn tín hữu, mở một trung tâm dạy nghề và đảm trách một số công cuộc bác ái xã hội. Hiện nay, cộng thể tại đây có 5 anh em hội viên do Cha Jun Paradiang làm Giám đốc. Cho dù cơ sở tại đây bị ảnh hưởng một chút do cuộc hỏa hoạn gây ra, nhưng các anh em SDB của chúng ta không hề hấn gì. Anh em đã di tản đến nhà xứ Thánh Ninô để tạm lánh cư và anh em cũng mở cửa Trung tâm dạy nghề Don Bosco để các nạn nhân có nơi trú ngụ. Nhà cửa của họ đã bị thiêu rụi hầu như hoàn toàn. Anh em cũng mở cửa cả nhà đa năng thể thao và trường tiểu học Pasil để làm nơi tạm cư cho các nạn nhân.

    Ban Mục vụ Giới trẻ của Tỉnh dòng FIS do Cha Joriz Calsa làm trưởng ban đã lên Facebook để huy động việc cứu trợ khẩn cấp. Trên Facebook, chúng ta sẽ thấy trong video nhiều hình ảnh rất thương tâm. Tại Cebu còn có 7 cộng đoàn SDB và Gia đình Salêdiêng. Cầu mong các anh chị em ra tay giúp đỡ.

    Nhà cộng thể Don Bosco nằm sát bên Vương cung Thánh đường Santo Nino ở Cebu. Trong những ngày này, cho dù bị ảnh hưởng bởi cuộc hỏa hoạn vừa qua, dân chúng cũng vẫn nô nức chuẩn bị đại lễ kính Thánh Nino, mừng vào ngày 21/01 sắp tới. Đây là vị thánh mà người dân Cebu chọn làm bổn mạng.

    Có một điều khá lùng và rất ý nghĩa, đó là bức tượng Thánh Don Bosco đặt ở phía trước Trung tâm dạy nghề vẫn đứng vững trong cơn hỏa hoạn. Chắc chắn Don Bosco vẫn muốn ở lại mãi với các con cái và dân chúng địa phương nơi đây.
