CFC Albay, Cross Catholic, ANCOP & LGU Turnover 15 Ancop Homes
CFC Albay finished the construction of 16 houses at the Taysan Resettlement Site, Sitio Tognao, Barangay Taysan, Legazpi City. The houses, 15 of which were made possible through Cross Catholic Outreach and 1 from the family of Eric and Carina delos Reyes, were blessed and awarded to 16 families last February 28, 2015.

Officiating at the blessing was His Excellency Bishop Joel Z. Baylon, D.D. of the Diocese of Legazpi.

Mayor Noel Rosal of the City Mayor of Legazpi; Provincial Administrator Jesap Salceda; and Lot Ortiz, Philippine Project Coordinator of Cross Catholic Outreach also graced the event. Elmer Cadiz, CFC ANCOP Operations Head; Vic Alvarez, CFC Bicol Regional Head; and Rudy and Sonia Lubis, CFC Albay Provincial Area Head, joined the CFC Albay Area Governance Team headed by Mon Verdejo and the leaders and members of CFC Albay together with its Family Ministries in welcoming the guests.

Bishop Baylon expressed his gratitude to CFC for being one with the Catholic Church in its concrete manifestation of the work with the poor in the Year of the Poor. He exhorted those present to learn from the experience of poverty, as the poor is where Christ is. Bishop Baylon also mentioned the Diocese of Legazpi’s project, “TADA”, meaning, “TANGANING ANG DUKHA ATAMANON”, which means, “SO THAT THE POOR MAY BE HELPED”. Through this, he hopes that CFC and the Diocese of Legazpi may sustain their collaborative work in order to alleviate the sufferings of the poor.

Lot Ortiz, representing Cross Catholic Outreach, the donor for this ANCOP shelter project, expressed her group’s conviction that the houses represent the transformed lives of the home partners. “These home partners will now be living with dignity,” Ortiz said.

The City Government of Legazpi, represented by Mayor Noel Rosal, showed its unfailing support to CFC Albay through the city’s partnership with shelter project. Mayor Rosal assured the community of his support as there are still a lot more families needing houses in the City. He likewise promised to support whatever livelihood project CFC Albay may launch for the benefit of the home partners.

Jesap Salceda, the Provincial Administrator of the Government of Albay, representing his brother Governor Joey Salceda delivered the governor’s message of gratitude to CFC Albay for initiating this noble project for the less privileged families of Albay. (Ludy Verdejo)
