CFC ANCOP USA, Pontificio Collegio Fillipino Sign Partnership Agreement
Tuesday, September 12, 2017
His Eminence Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Chairman of Pontificio Collegio Filippino, and its Rector Msgr. Greg Gaston recently signed the ANCOP USA Priest sponsorship Program (PSP) partnership with Eric Villanueva, Roger santos and Rollie Balanza, Couples for Christ - ANCOP USA leaders. The ANCOP USA PSP will assist priests from the Philippines who will be sent by their Bishops to do advance studies in Rome.
In his letter to Villanueva, Cardinal Tagle wrote, “Our partnership will allow more Bishops to send Priests for ongoing formation and further studies in Rome, to better equip them in serving God's people as seminary Formators and as collaborators in the different Diocesan Ministries back home. As a result, our Church in the Philippines will be strengthened, so that Priests and laity alike could carry out our respective work of evangelization and service, not only to the Church, but also to society.”
According to the agreement, the PSP is for Master's, Licentiate or Doctorate studies only. ANCOP USA PSP funds will cover the priest’s board and lodging at the Collegio in the amount of $10,000 per year. All other needs, such as tuition fees, medical insurance, transportation, books, etc., will be provided for by the Bishop as a local counterpart. This would ensure that priests can benefit from the partnership. To donate or to know more about the program, please visit www.ancopusa-psp.org.(ANCOP USA Communications)
Jobless. Abroad. Alone and lonely. This was what life was like for many members of Couples for Christ (CFC) Netherlands during the first months of the COVID-19 crisis. The reality of people in need inspired CFC Country Heads Mel and Daday de Leon, together with ANCOP Heads Medel and Milen Aviles, to start the “Tulong Kapatid” program, which provided relief through door-to-door delivery of care packages as well as financial assistance to the most affected CFC members.
MANILA, Philippines — Rain or shine, on lockdown or not, we’re walking for our scholars! For the first time ever, the ANCOP Global Walk (AGW) goes virtual and will target 5 billion steps over three months to help send underprivileged students and seminarians to school. This year, the AGW will also benefit ANCOP’s calamity services, which most recently have been assisting sectors most affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
