Last July 15-17, over 2,000 single man and woman of CFC Singles for Christ (SFC) Metro Manila went on its annual gathering in the land of salt and milk fish, Dagupan City, Pangasinan. With our theme “Stronghold”, our SFC brothers and sisters were invited to celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness. All who have attended the celebration were empowered and inspired by the grace of God that weekend.
After the conference, the SFC Metro Manila team headed by Bro. Rob Escano together with the Governance Team of Couples for Christ Pangasinan headed by Bro. Manny Casupang where all in attendance as they visited the newly elected Vice President of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), His Excellency Most Rev. Socrates B. Villegas, D.D. for a courtesy call. He also happens to be the Archbishop of the Diocese of Dagupan-Lingayen who, together with the clergy, supported greatly the said conference.
Everyone felt all privileged to be with Bishop Soc after a graceful conference. And he thanked everyone for choosing Pangasinan as the venue of the SFC Metro Manila Conference. Also he honored Couples for Christ for being one with the Catholic Church in its extensive campaign for the sanctity of coincidentally that same weekend, the Diocese held its Run for Life which was participated by the CFC Pangasinan and its Family Ministries.
We ended the occasion with Bishop Soc giving us his blessing together with rosaries as presents and a humble reminder that our mission as a community should always be coupled with prayer.
