Bishop ‘disowns’ fake military priest

MILITARY Bishop Oscar Florencio on Saturday, October 22, 2022 warned the public against engaging with any priest claiming ties to the Military Ordinariate of the Philippines (MOP).

In a notice, Florencio said the MOP had no relationship with a certain ‘Father Aries Aguilar’ and should not be treated as such.

“This is to inform you that a certain ‘Father Aries Aguilar’ is not an ordained priest of the Military Ordinariate of the Philippines and has never been in contact with us since,” Florencio said.

“Any claim and/or transaction he makes using our name is therefore fraudulent and abnormal,” he added.

The Prelate urged those who have had previous interactions with the said person to report to the MOP.

“Please notify this office for further assistance and for any legal action to be taken, if necessary,” Florencio said.

The MOP has jurisdiction over all military, police, and coast guard personnel, their dependents, and civilian human resources of all these branches. (HDT/SunStar Philippines)
