Brighter Days II - 21st anniversary of CFC in Quezon Province

Another great day for CFC!

Date- Oct 21, 2007
Venue- Alcala Sports Complex, Lucena City
Event- 21st Anniversary of CFC in Quezon Province

Amidst cloudy skies, thunderstorms and a short downpour, about 6,000 strong CFC members and their families attended the 21st year Anniversary celebration of CFC in Quezon Province. To kick off this year’s event, a motorcade went around the city of Lucena. The Alcala Sports Complex was the venue for this year’s grand anniversary. The celebration at the venue was heralded by cheers and chants from each of the 6 sectors.

CFC Quezon is composed of more or less 12,000 active members. The members of the Governance Team are;

Jun Oabel- Area Director
Benjie De Ocampo- Mission and Evangelization
Eric Oliveros- Family Ministries
Paul Pinera- Pro Life and Tekton Guild
Raul Tolentino- Gawad Kalinga
Andy Alquiros- Social Ministries and Special Ministries
Rene Martinez- sits as an Ex Officio member and handles Pastoral Formation.

The Spiritual Director of CFC-Quezon, Monsignor Dennis Imperial officiated in this year’s anniversary mass. In his homily, he spoke about the importance of prayer. He exhorted everyone to be consistent in their prayer time. His reminder to all is to always be; “manatiling mananalig”.

During the agape lunch, different Family Ministries entertained the crowd with their colorful presentations. The weather lifted shortly after lunch, giving way to a beautiful afternoon of thanksgiving and fellowship. The program proper started with an Anniversary Message from our Brother Joe Tale . The highlight of the event was the Field Demonstration competition of the different sectors. Everyone eagerly looked forward to the grand raffle. Various prices were given out. The major prize was a motorcycle unit. The afternoon ended with a spirit filled Praise fest. Indeed GOD has blessed our brothers and sisters in the province of Quezon with 21 colorful years. Hallelujah!
