CFC Central A evangelizes through Grade 6 Recollection: Perfect Time

LIFE CAN be quite difficult for a student who is graduating. There is joy that lessons have been learned and memories made but there is also sadness at the possible parting from friends. There is also apprehension at what lies ahead. 


It is no wonder that schools normally schedule retreats or recollections for their graduating students to help ease their transition to the next level and to help them cope with their fears at facing new horizons.


One such school was St. Therese Private School in Mandaluyong City which requested CFC Central A to conduct the recollection for their graduating Grade 6 students last March 17. This was a welcome invitation for Central A since this was part of their school-centered evangelization program.


The event was headed by Roland and Leny Nabong, Youth for Christ Central A coordinator.


The recollection began with praying the rosary followed by the opening prayer. It was a jam-packed afternoon for these students. Before each session, an activity was done to energize them while group discussions followed after the sessions.


The speakers at the event were Maan Cyrel Palacio, YFC Metro Manila Head; Sarah Abigail Halal, YFC Central A fulltime pastoral worker; Gerald Manapsal, YFC Advocacies International Head; MJ Ramos, YFC fulltime pastoral worker Trainee; and Reymark Andes, YFC Central A High School Based program volunteer


The first session was entitled Kaleidoscope, a talk designed to make the students embrace their and to realize that they are created by God and for God. The second session was entitled On the Wings like Eagles where the participants were made to realize that strength comes to those who put their hope in the Lord. The third session was entitled Appreciating the Gift of Family, with each participant was taught to appreciate the beauty of his/her family’s uniqueness. The fourth session was entitled Speak Out, exhorting the participants to experience the fruits of an open and constant dialogue with their parents.


After the fourth session, the students were led to a letter writing activity after which there was a Parent-Child Dialogue. 


The recollection ended with a closing prayer and a song. A total of 240 students attended the event.(CFC Global Communications)
