Valenzuela Rep. Wes Gatchalian doesn’t have qualms sharing his blessings for a good cause.

Gatchalian has donated P100,000 for the construction of the Our Lady of Lourdes Quasi Parish Church in Barangay Bignay, Valenzuela.

The lawmaker symbolically turned over his donation during the time capsule laying ceremony at the construction site on January 30.

In a Facebook post, Gatchalian stressed the importance of the Catholic Church’s role in helping people cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Sa panahon ng pagsubok, tulad ngayong nasa gitna tayo ng pandemyang dulot ng COVID-19, tunay na mahalaga ang papel na ginagampanan ng simbahan upang patatagin ang pananalig ng ating mga kababayan,” he said.
