CFC East A Celebrates Silver Anniversary
August is a special month for Couples for Christ East A Sector as it celebrates its 25th year as a ministry. Held last August 2 at Our Lady of Light Parish Formation Center, the Seniors Fair and Medical Mission kicked off the month-long commemoration. The event was well-attended by seniors who had a great time at the sessions especially during the Laughter Yoga, and patients who availed laboratory tests at a low cost. Freebies were also given away to attendees. Both the Seniors Fair and the Medical Mission were made possible through the generosity of the CFC members and friends in the medical field and in partnership with Unilab. 

The second major activity held in line with the anniversary was the Family Day which took place on the following Saturday, August 9, at Siena College, Taytay. The whole-day event began with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist presided by Rev. Fr. Leo Luanzon, whose parents are also members of CFC East A. In his homily, Fr. Leo shared two realities: that failure is part of our life, and that the challenge for us is to deal with those failures by staying connected with God. He concluded by saying that nothing is impossible with love, for God is love, and nothing is impossible with God.

Ending the month-long celebration was the Silver Anniversary Ball held on August 23 at Cainta Catholic College Auditorium. It was a night of remembering and honoring the pillars of CFC East A and rejoicing in God’s faithfulness for the past 25 years. Guests were entertained and led to a walk down memory lane with the presentations of the four clusters and the Family Ministries highlighting the milestones in the history of CFC. The event was graced by the presence of CFC Chairman Joe Tale and his wife Babylou, and Cynthia Campos, wife of CFC Executive Director George Campos who is currently on mission and who also once served as CFC East A Sector Head. In his inspirational speech, Joe Tale reminded the community that amidst the tremendous work that we need to do, amidst the changes that we constantly need to deal with, two things must remain: our love for God, and our love for one another as brothers and sisters. He exhorted the members to continue to walk with faith as the Lord unfolds His great plan for the next 25 years. Chito Cubacub, CFC East A Sector Head also shared how symbolic it was to celebrate the silver anniversary at the very venue where East A had its humble beginnings. The first Christian Life Program that started it all for the sector was held in 1989 at Cainta Catholic College Auditorium which, at that time, was just a simple indoor gym. After the awarding, the presentations, and the speeches, the auditorium turned into one happy dance floor as everyone merrily danced the night away in full confidence, faith, and gratitude that the good Lord will continue to bless the work in East A just as He did in the past 25 years. 

CFC East A is led by Sector Head Chito Cubacub and wife Peachy along with the members of the Sector Governance Team. It covers some areas of Pasig (particularly Santolan and Manggahan), Cainta, and Taytay, Rizal with a total membership of not less than 3,000 including members of the Family Ministries.
