"... Acknowledging the concerns of the Asian bishops, John Paul II told them that if the Church “is to fulfill its providential destiny, evangelization as the joyful, patient and progressive preaching of the saving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ must be your absolute priority.” These words hold true for all of us."
- p110, chapter III , The Proclamation of the Gospel , EVANGELII GAUDIUM
Evangelization... the task that is laid down before us to pick-up and spread... the great commission of the modern era... the challenge we all are called to face.
Just 4 more days to go before we are sent out on a mission, four more days before the theme for this year will be revealed and four more days to go before we, as a community, go out to the real world and swim against the tide.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, as the 2014 Evangelization Rally comes closer, let us prepare ourselves to be surprised with lots of good news to be revealed. Just to give you a taste of what is coming...the Eucharistic Celebration, which is the highlight of the Evangelization Rally, will be officiated by Bishop Oscar Solis on Saturday at 7:30 PM. But, before that, a mini-praisefest will be in order, it will be led by the vibrant members of the Singles For Christ. They will lead us sing some of the new songs that are coming out this year and are already included in the new Glory Songbook, which, btw, will be sold along with other ABLAZE products during the FamSoc Ministry Fair at 1:00 PM.
So, please help us extend this invitation to all the members serving in CFC and it's Family and Social Ministries. Again, FamSoc Ministry Fair @ 1:00 PM and Evangelization Rally proper @ 3:00 PM, and Eucharistic Celebration @ 7:30 PM.
See you there and God bless us all!
Chito and Jocel Noriega
