UA&P co-founder remembers Dr. Placido Mapa, Jr.

Dr. Placido “Cidito” Ledesma Mapa, Jr., 86, passed away on May 5, 2019. He was the founding chairman of the Board of Trustees of UA&P Foundation, Inc. He first met Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao in Cambridge. The latter became the co-founder of CRC and the first president of UA&P.

“I received the news of Cidito´s passing into the next world with mixed emotions: sadness for our loss, thankfulness for all the good he did in life; and reflection on the lessons we can all learn from his exemplary life.

“This being May, and the place where I am (Barcelona) being dotted with many churches, I opted to go on a special pilgrimage to an image of our Lady at the Monestir de Pedralbes. I offered special prayers for Cidito there.

“While at prayer before the image of Our Lady, I reflected on a few of the key lessons I have been privileged to learn from the exemplary life Cidito lived.”
