CATHOLIC MISSION, CFC ANCOP PARTNERS FOR AN IMMERSION PROGRAM AT BANTAYAN ISLAND
Wednesday, December 19, 2018
Catholic Mission-Australia paved their way to the Philippines for a week-long Immersion Program partnership with CFC ANCOP which was held at CFC ANCOP Malbago Community at Bantayan Island, Cebu last December 9-15, 2018. Participants include four teachers and 17 college students from St. Francis Xavier College and Mount St. Joseph High School in Australia.
The week-long immersion was filled with new adventure, as the participants engage their lives to the villagers of the said ANCOP site. As they were welcomed on their first day with the “Pinoy hospitality,” the villagers prepared festive dances and brought warm smiles, which made the visitors feel welcomed. The rest of the week was filled with more engagement with the villagers, like having meals with them, helping in cementing pathways, and making do-it-yourself Christmas decorations for the village’s common area.
The participants also get to have new learnings through presenting them an ANCOP orientation and Child Protection Policy Orientation. They also get to have a tour around Bantayan Island, one of the famous islands in Cebu for its beautiful white-sand beaches. They visited and had masses in churches like Immaculate Concepcion Parish at the Municipality of Madridejos, and Sts. Peter and Paul Church at downtown the Municipality of Bantayan, the oldest church in Cebu and second oldest in the Philippines. They also had a team-building activity through an amazing race at the beautiful beach of Lawis.
Memories and friendships gained in this immersion will surely be remembered forever, not just by the participants, but by the villagers as well. They will always remember how they encountered Jesus through one another.
This was the first immersion program partnership of CFC ANCOP and Catholic Mission, and both are looking forward to more in the future. (CFC ANCOP Communications /pmb)
