CFC ANCOP Breaks ground at Pook Masagana
Masagana” is a Filipino word that means abundant. And true to its name, the latest ANCOP Community in Bgy. Bahay Toro in Quezon City is indeed masagana—in faith, in people, in love.

Last February 26, 2015, leaders of the Metro Manila West C Sector, together with ANCOP leaders and the family home partners gathered at Pook Masagana for the groundbreaking ceremonies, the start of a future full of hope for those whose homes will soon rise in the site.

The morning started with the breaking of the bread through the Mass celebrated by Fr. Sal Dumabuc, Chaplain of the Department of Justice, with Fr. CA Adan concelebrating. Before the final blessing, Fr. Dumabuc prayed over the time capsule and blessed it while it was being lowered into the ground. CFC ANCOP President and CFC International Council member Jimmy Ilagan and West C BCOP Head Joe Francia led the groundbreaking rites.

“Pope Francis, during his visit to the Philippines,  stated that the future of our humanity passes through the family. And we believe that this holds true for all the families who will be living in this ANCOP Community,” Ilagan said. He added, “The unity that will be the benchmark of this community will be reflected not only in the various institutions that will work together to build this community like CFC and our donor, DMC Urban Property Development Inc., but through every member of the families who will be living here.”

Ilagan urged the home partners and volunteers not to lose the capacity to dream, as the groundbreaking rites will just be the beginning of the countless dreams that will be fulfilled in Pook Masagana.

Jose Merin, president of donor institution DMC UPDI in turn thanked CFC and ANCOP for living out the Holy Father’s love for the poor, and for making them a part of the project. He pledged to help the program in whatever capacity will be available to them.

The short program ended with more breaking of the bread among home partners, CFC, ANCOP and DMC UPDI through the feast prepared by the residents of Pook Masagana. (Alma Alvarez)
