CFC Horishima Turns One!

The second Sunday of Lent, February 28, 2018 marked the very first anniversary celebration of CFC Hiroshima. Held at the Jesuit Retreat House in the beautiful hill area of Nagatsukanashi, Hiroshima, the celebration gathered CFC members for an amazing spiritual gathering. 

 

SFC household leader Reji Obedencio led the praise and worship assisted by the music ministry. SFC Head Edcel De La Torre, who came all the way from Tokyo, presented the inspirational talk regarding Financial Stewardship. 

 

In the afternoon, the assembly prayed the Stations of the Cross, with solemn prayers accompanied by spiritual songs. It was followed by the celebration of the Mass with Fr. Alex Varickmackal officiating. In his homily, Fr. Varickmackal emphasized the message of Pope Francis about taking up the Lenten journey with enthusiasm, sustained by almsgiving, fasting and prayer. 

 

The special event concluded with a wonderful praisefest thanking God for the fruitful year He blessed the community with. It was just a year ago when unit heads Manny and Helen Cajilog started the evangelization of a few couples with the help of CFC leaders Percival and Sai Padilla. By God’s grace, the group grew bigger with the third batch of graduates being welcomed after the successful Christian Life Program in December 2017. 

 

This year, the community is planning to have two CLPs and its first CFC Youth Camp. This is only the beginning and CFC Hiroshima will continue to rekindle the gift of God and fulfill its ministry. 


The success of the community would not be possible without the dedication of CFC leaders Rosario Charo, Carmi and Raffi Roble and Toshi Sugino. Most notably, CFC Hiroshima would not have great ties with the local church if not for the incredible support of Bishop Alexis Mitsuru Shirahama of the Diocese of Hiroshima and the parish priest, Fr. Domenico Vitali. (Glen Orlanes)
