West A: Still Standing Firm!

THE Couples for Christ - West A Sector is spread across parts of Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela and Tondo in Manila. 


The parochial cover of the sector is under the Archdiocese of Manila with Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, Diocese of Caloocan with Most Rev. Ambo David, and Diocese of Malolos with Most Rev. Jose Oliveros. West A has an active participation in these dioceses and the parishes they hold.


Establishment of Couples for Christ in the area:


The first Christian Life Program (CLP) in the area was held in January of 1991 in San Gabriel. This CLP was headed by Ben Donato. Around the same period, there was another CLP in Sto. Nino de Tondo, with Rene Perez as supervising head. A third CLP for the year was held in Maypajo. 


The conduct of Christian Life Programs followed in quick succession, with San Gabriel again holding its second CLP at the start of 1992. A total of 19 couples graduated from this CLP. Two more CLPS were introduced in the area (Couples for Christ had not yet created sectors at this time.) for the year, one in St. Peter Parish and another in St. John Parish. 


The following year, 1993, CLP was introduced in Hearts of Mary and Jesus in Nadurata. A geographic reorganization of Couples for Christ in 1994 saw Caloocan being removed from the Quezon City area and attached to the North sectors of Metro Manila.


The area became the West A sector in 1996 with Rene Perez as its first sector head. The succession of sector heads that were appointed in succeeding reorganizations is as follows: Jun Ligeralde, Art del Rio, Boyet Rafael, Mike Bukuhan, and now, Nonoy Caunga.


Membership Figures


The sector is divided into six (6) clusters covering a total of 24 chapters.


From only a few dozen members in 1991, the sector now has a total membership of 6,607 broken down as follows: CFC-2,751; HOLD-715; SOLD-19; SFC-1,034; YFC-1,250 and KFC-838. 


The sector will be celebrating its 26th anniversary this year and looking forward to many more years of service to the Lord.


West A is ably governed by a six-man group called the Sector Governance Team (SGT). Each of the members of the SGT holds responsibility for a different aspect of the sector’s evangelization and mission work. They are:
