. . . Danilo Ulep . . .

Danilo Bangayan Ulep was born on 24 June 1962 at Tuguegarao City, Cagayan to Cesar Ulep and Ana Bangayan. He had his primary education at Tuguegarao Central School and attended San Jacinto Seminary for his secondary education and seminary formation. He studied philosophy and theology at the UST Central Seminary in Manila, where he obtained a bachelor’s and licentiate in philosophy in 1983. Then, a bachelor’s in sacred theology and canon law in 1986 and 1987.

On March 10, 1987, Ulep was ordained to the priesthood together with now, Archbishop Ricardo Baccay by Archbishop Diosdado Talamayan, the then, Archbishop of Tuguegarao at the St. Peter’s Cathedral.

On May 20, 2017, Pope Francis appointed him as the Fifth Bishop of the Territorial Prelature of Batanes.[2] He was consecrated bishop at St. Peter’s Metropolitan Cathedral on July 29, 2017 by Most Rev. Sergio Lasam Utleg, Archbishop of Tuguegarao. Co-consecrators were Marlo Mendoza Peralta, Archbishop of Nueva Segovia ; and Camilo Diaz Gregorio, Bishop-Prelate Emeritus of Batanes. He was installed as Bishop-Prelate of Batanes on August 8 of the same year, feast of St. Dominic De Guzman, patron of Basco, the capital of Batanes.

The coat of arms of the Prelature of Batanes appears on the left side of the viewer while that of Bishop Ulep appears on the right.

The shield is divided by a Dominican cross which refers to the Dominican Order and the seminary Bishop Ulep attended, the UST Central Seminary. Crossing the shield are blue and white vavy lines that represent the Cagayan River and his ancestry, the Ibanags. On the upper corner is a yellow six-pointed star surmounted with a rosary which honors the Our Lady of Fatima during which centennial celebration that the Bishop’s appointment was announced. It is set on a red field symbolic of Mary in her “fiat” has allowed the “divine” to overshadow her. It is also sybolic of magnanimity: Mary full of grace! At the lower corner is an scallop representing St John the Baptist because the Bishop is born on the Feast of the nativity of the saint. The three drops of water alludes to the Holy Trinity. It is also set on a red field to recall John’s heroic martyrdom.

Ulep’s motto is taken from Mattew 6:10, Fiat voluntas tua (“Your will be done”).
