OUR THEME FOR 2014

EMPOWERED TO WITNESS 

Our theme is taken from 2 Timothy 1:7-8. "For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for his sake; but bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God."

Easter Pastoral Instruction on Stewardship of Health

His Excellency Archbishop Socrates B Villegas, in consultation with the Permanent Council has issued the enclosed pastoral exhortation on the occasion of Easter entitled WHERE O DEATH IS YOUR VICTORY? WHERE O DEATH IS YOUR STING?"

The pastoral exhortation which aims to teach the people of God about Christian understanding of health has various sub-themes which may be used as catechetical or homiletic materials during the Easter season. The proper Christian understanding of health which this pastoral exhortation proclaims will also help to correct the misconceptions about health underlying the RH Law. It is also advisable to use the various sub-themes about health for our seminars for the youth and for those preparing for marriage. The CBCP President reiterates the Church's position that we do have a positive message to impart to our flock on the issue of health.



GREAT NEWS!
The much talked about theatrical production, BAYAN BAYANAN sa TORONTO is back!

CFC-FFL sponsors the matinee show of the stage play on September 28, 2014 at 2 PM

LETTERS FROM HOME - Bayan Bayanan sa Toronto, premiered last March 7, 2014 in Canada with three performances. Due to public demand, we are back this September for four performances with new cast member and added scenes by international award-winning playwright/director Anton Juan, PhD. Anton is a Tenured Senior Professor of Directing and Playwriting/Theatre and Social Concerns/ Artistic Director, New Playwright's Workshop, in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre at the UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME in Indiana. He is an alumnus and a former professor of the University of the Philippines.


Bayan Bayanan is a modern masterpiece by acclaimed Filipino playwright Bienvenido Noriega, Jr. The play revolves around a group of expatriate Filipinos (Pinoys) in Switzerland in the late 70's, reckoned to be the start of the global wave of Filipino migration. The Pinoys gather in Manang's house and reminisce about their life back home in the Philippines and the stories of the families they left behind. The shared experiences and re-creation of Filipino life from varied perspectives of these Pinoys evolve to become their armor against the difficulties and challenges of living in a country not their own and the constant pain of loneliness.

Project: BABY DIAPERS & WIPES

As seen in this picture are the donations collected during the 2012 Advent Appeal for Diapers and Wipes received by St. Mary Doolittle of the Sisters of Life. Compare to last year's appeal, our collections increased more than threefold this year and Sisters of Life was so much grateful for the timely delivery of diapers, wipes and petroleum jellies which they said had provided relief to them due to the increasing number of mothers who gave birth to babies saved from abortion. Families they now serve include those refugees and migrant workers whom they discovered to be very vulnerable to sending their children to abortion mills. Collections came from almost all chapters in the GTA District but this time we noted the active participation of the Handmaids and YFL.
