COUPLES FOR CHRIST EMPOWERED THROUGH ANCOP’S MISSION WITH THE POOR RETREAT

Friday, October 05, 2018

As Couples for Christ’s institutional work with the poor, CFC ANCOP has been doing more initiatives to fulfill its mission to answer the cry of the poor. In 2016, they had their pilot run of a new initiative called “Mission with the Poor Retreat” (MWPR) which aims to empower the members of the Couples for Christ community, most especially the leaders, in doing more things to fulfill their mission of building the church of the poor.

Mission with the Poor Retreat is basically a 2-day or a whole day retreat composed of four sessions and an immersion program to any institution or ANCOP sites. The sessions are intended to give the participants the reality of what is happening to our poor brethren, and how the community is extending its hands to reach out to them through ANCOP. This is also for the community members to completely understand and acknowledge that their full support and reinforcement are much needed in achieving this purpose. The retreat want them to realize that working with the poor is a calling from the Lord that needs to be answered, and the community has been giving them this opportunity. 

 

MWPR was first introduced mostly to areas in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, with Central A as the very first to conduct in October 2016 and was followed by North A in November 2017. By this year, Central B, Central C, East A, West B, and East B in August, then North B just this September, also had their run. The first province to run this was Laguna in August this year. Other countries like Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore also conducted the retreat. More upcoming MWPR will run this October including West C (Oct. 13), South B (Oct. 20-21), and West A (Oct. 27-28).

CFC ANCOP is looking forward to bring MWPR to every leaders and members of the community from every provinces and countries. They are truly hopeful that every CFC members are empowered to work with the poor, not just through ANCOP, but in any ways they can. (CFC ANCOP Communications /pmb)
