Tarlac Turns Twenty-five

JUNE 6, 2015 was a very important date for Couples for Christ Tarlac. It was the community’s 25th anniversary. All roads led to the Camiling Sports Complex in Camiling, Tarlac as members from all parts of Tarlac began the day with a motorcade Efren Inocencio, Tarlac West Sector Chapter Head, led the morning worship. Gilbert Alvarez, Tarlac AGT member and Sector Head of Tarlac West Sector, welcomed all the participants and guests which included International Council members Joe and Mila Yamamoto, George and Cynthia Campos and Arnel and Bing Santos. Also present were Regional Heads Romy and Edit Alfaro (Central Luzon), Tony and Zeny Gimenez (Western Visayas but formerly Area Head of Tarlac), Ding Aguinaldo (Calabarzon) and Tarlac Provincial Area Head Omy Santos and his wife Fe.


After inspirational messages by Joe Yamamoto, George Campos and Arnel Santos, a sumptuous lunch was served at noon followed by Holy Mass celebrated by His Excellency Bishop Florentino Cinense of the Diocese of Tarlac, together with Msgr. Melvin Castro, parish priest of Tarlac Cathedral.


After the Mass, Bishop Cinense prayed over the new CFC Tarlac leaders. Afterwards, the entire province presented plaques of appreciation to seven couples from Camiling and 11 couples from Tarlac City—couples who planted the seed of Couples for Christ in the province of Tarlac.


By mid-afternoon, the daylong event featured various Philippine festivals—Tarlac Central Sector with the Maskara Festival; Tarlac North Sector with the Sinulog Festival; Tarlac South Sector with the Panagbenga Festival; and the host, Tarlac West Sector, the Ati-Atihan Festival.


Gerone Baladhay of CFC – Singles for Christ of Tarlac South Sector led the Praisefest. Everyone agreed that even after 25 years, every heart was still burning with zeal for the mission and looking ahead to a joyful journey towards the next 25 years and beyond. (Mac Bustos)
