CEBU CITY, Philippines – Cebuanos are mourning the death of one of the Episcopal Vicars of the Archdiocese of Cebu.

Msgr. Esteban Binghay succumbed to pneumonia at 12:40 p.m. today, November 4, 2019 while admitted at the Perpertual Succour Hospital in Cebu City, says Msgr. Joseph Tan, the Archdiocesan spokesperson.

Binghay was 84-years-old.

The Balamban-native has been a priest for 57 years and served as an episcopal vicar with the task of overseeing certain parishes in the archdiocese.

He was also a matrimonial judge and has sent several scholars to school.

Msgr. Tan told CDN Digital in a text message that they are still finalizing details of Binghay’s wake and funeral.
