PNP to partner with priests and faith-based groups to provide "spiritual nourishment" to cops
Hopefully, this would prevent them from being led into temptation, so to speak.
Nikko Dizon of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that the Philippine National Police (PNP) Chaplain Service is set to hold nationwide "consultative meetings and dialogues" with different faith-based groups as part of its renewed efforts to provide "spiritual nourishment" to policemen.
The report explained that aside from scheduling dialogues, the PNP Chaplain Service "also plans to set up a partnership with parish priests, lay ministers and police chiefs." Rev. Fr. Lucio Rosaroso, the PNP Headquarters base chaplain, said the partnership will help the PNP Chaplain Service reach out to more policemen since there are only 29 police chaplains stationed in 17 regional offices nationwide.
Rosaroso, who also happens to hold the rank of a police superintendent,said the programs were aimed to enhance the cops' spiritual growth because "as our front-liners, our policemen are busy with work and their lives, leaving little space and time for reflection."
