On Being Shepherds

ONE OF the major activities of the CFC anniversary week was the Governance Team (GT) Summit, held to clarify and define the roles and responsibilities of governance teams in the Philippines and abroad, whether as individuals, as a household and as governing bodies. The summit was held on the morning of the last day of the week-long anniversary celebrations, Sunday, June 20 at the MOA SMX venue.


As is usual with CFC conferences, the morning begun with the celebration of the Holy Mass, officiated by Fr. Gerard Timoner, Head of the Dominican Province in the Philippines. His homily, taken from the Bible passage that speaks of Jesus being awoken from his sleep and stilling the storm that had caused so much fear in his disciples, was particularly apt as he spoke of how we should not be afraid as we do our work and how we should be at peace because God and our brethren are with us.


He said: “When we know we are in it (the mission) together, our fears are assuaged by the people who we know are with us. When we know God is with us, then we know He will never ever abandon us and that is enough.”


The hall was filled as leaders from all over listened to ANCOP President Jimmy Ilagan’s exhortation on how leaders can best govern their flock. Chairman Joe Tale then spoke and offered the participants the best way to lead—to be shepherds of the flock, to be true witnesses of love and care.

 

The open forum that followed was lively as the leaders spoke about their concerns in being shepherds and how they can be more effective in their mission.
