Circular 2018-11

RE: Bishop of Bayombong

Reverend Fathers:

On account of the appointment of Bishop Elmer I. Mangalinao as Bishop of Bayombong, he has ceased to be Titular Bishop of Urusi and Auxiliary Bishop of Lingayen Dagupan since last May 24.  His name will no longer be mentioned in the Eucharistic Prayer in Masses celebrated in the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan inasmuch as his name will be mentioned already in all the Masses in the Diocese of Bayombong.

He will be installed Bishop of Bayombong on July 25, 2018 at 10:00 o’clock in the morning at the Cathedral of Saint Dominic in Bayombong. We will send out information about a delegation from the archdiocese who will send him off and attend the installation rites.

Our thanksgiving Mass and farewell fellowship for Bishop Elmer will be held on July 21, Saturday at 10:00 am at the Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist. Kindly reserve the date and organize a delegation from the parishes and schools for this despedida.

Let us thank the Lord for the ministry of Bishop Elmer to our Church in Lingayen Dagupan. We know the Diocese of Bayombong will be equally blessed by his ministry.

Sincerely yours,


Archbishop of Lingayen Dagupan


Circular 2016-19: Auxiliary Bishop of Lingayen-Dagupan

RE: Auxiliary Bishop of Lingayen Dagupan

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ:

The Holy Father Pope Francis has appointed Monsignor ELMER MANGALINAO titular bishop of Urusi and auxiliary bishop of Lingayen Dagupan. His appointment is a blessing for us in our archdiocese.  Prior to his appointment, he was a priest of the Diocese of Cabanatuan.

As we await his episcopal ordination and the day of his arrival in our archdiocese, liturgical norms prescribe that we include his name in the Eucharistic Prayer.

In the English form, after mentioning Pope Francis, the presider says “Socrates our bishop, Elmer his assistant bishop and all the clergy”.

In the Pangasinan form, the liturgical text will be “tan si Socrates ya Obispo mi, si Elmer a katulongan to, tan amin a clero.”

In the succeeding weeks, we shall receive more information about his ordination and his liturgical reception among us. He will certainly reside and hold office at the Cathedral of Saint John in Dagupan City.

Please pray for him and pray for me. I assure you of my prayers too.

Sincerely yours,


Archbishop of Lingayen Dagupan
