CFC NEGROS OCCIDENTAL PROVINCE HELD THEIR FIRST ANCOP & SOCDEV SUMMIT
Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Couples for Christ leaders from Negros Occidental recently held their first-ever ANCOP and Social Development Summit last September 1 at Padre Pio Hall, Sacred Heart Shrine Compound, Bacolod City. The primary objective of this activity is to empower the leaders, from the Chapter Heads up to the Area Governance Team of Negros Occidental to support ANCOP and SocDev programs, and to enlighten them about the new policies and practices that are important in implementing the ANCOP programs in the province.
CFC ANCOP and SocDev teams were well-represented at the event to personally update CFC Negros Occidental about several developments, highlights, and milestones of the province with regards to these programs. The ANCOP Team that was sent to Bacolod were headed by CAGFI President itself, Bro. Rudy Gaspillo, together with his wife and ANCOP Research and Development Head Sis. Indette Gaspillo, while CFC SocDev is represented by its head itself, Bro. Mon de Leon. Other representatives from ANCOP Teams were Education Head Bro. Efren Tompong, Finance Head Bro. Manny Simon, ANCOP National Social Worker Sis. Jannie Bagapuro, ANCOP Liquidation Coordinator Bro. Paul Mayoralgo, and ANCOP Visayas Full-time Worker Sis. Cresty Tomenio.
First to present was Bro. Mon de Leon of SocDev, wherein he told the attendees that they were brought to the world as a beautiful first fruit, and they are to become an offering to the Lord. In his talk, Bro. Mon simply reminded them to rekindle their relationship to God and to remember the first time they were called to mission. With this, he presented SocDev initiatives, namely Migrants Program, GKare, Project Reform, Oikos, Order of St. Michael, Isaiah 61:1, and STMA, to let the participant choose what they feel is their calling through CFC SocDev programs. He also reminded them that their service doesn’t stop at where they are now, but it should be extended especially to those who need it the most.
In the latter part of the summit, ANCOP Team presented updates about Education Sponsorship Program, Alumni Relations, Cornerstone, Finance and Liquidation, Community Development and ISO. With these presentations, all participants were not just enlightened but were also challenged to keep on moving forward for the Lord through ANCOP Programs. Now, they were all empowered to increase the number of their scholars, to correct several practices that affect the implementation, and to instill a culture of trust among them and the beneficiaries.
Bro. Rudy Gaspillo, at the end of his presentation, reminded that “our service in ANCOP is not optional, it is essential.” A lot of poor people are in most need of help, and this is a great opportunity to serve the Lord and to fulfill the mission of building the church of the home and the poor.

For its ninth year, the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) sent 22 students, four teachers, and three volunteers to spend the holiday season and immerse in various Canada-funded ANCOP communities in the Philippines from December 28, 2019, until January 8, 2020. It was led by Michael Consul, with his father Bernie Consul from Couples for Christ Toronto, Canada.
St. Catherine of Siena said, “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” Being true to its two-fold mission of Building the Church of the Home and Building the Church of the Poor, Couples for Christ once again manifested this mission via the recent ANCOP Global Walk.
