CFC IC Pays Courtesy Visit to Cardinal Tagle
Monday, March 12, 2018

On March 6, CFC Chairman Melo Villaroman Jr. with wife Nini, Pastoral Formation Office Director Rouquel Ponte and Church Relations Office Head George Campos with wife Cynthia, paid a courtesy call on His Eminence Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila, at the Arzobispado in Intramuros, Manila. Fr. Joel Jason, parish priest at the Mary, Mirror of Justice Parish in Makati City, joined the meeting.

 

Villaroman and Ponte reported on the recent activities of the community, as well as updates on evangelization and missions, the Family Ministries, ANCOP, and the Social Development programs.

 

The Cardinal was pleased to hear about the developments in CFC, and encouraged the leaders to continue what CFC is doing. His Eminence also reiterated that the encounter and union with Christ must be the central focus of the mission for family renewal, and that it is always better to work together with like-minded communities in the family and life ministries.

 

“This will be a powerful witness that the Church itself is a family that works together, with each member contributing according to his gifts and charisms,” the prelate said. Cardinal Tagle likewise emphasized the Holy Father’s call to mercy and compassion as CFC does its share in the pastoral conversion of those in difficult family situations.

 

He said, “While we affirm the teachings of the Church, we as ministers must continue to give them hope. The situation of other people is not all ideal, but in their brokenness and in their struggles, we must continue to offer our hands to help and extend love.”

 

Other areas for collaboration that came up, especially between the Clergy and the laity, are the accompaniment of single parents, persons with same sex attraction, migrants, the military and the police force, the environment, social media, and persons with disability.

 

There are also many programs in the RCAM or the Roman Archdiocese of Manila that are parallel to the existing programs of CFC. Villaroman and Ponte assured the Cardinal that CFC is committed to partner with the Church in these initiatives. (Alma Alvarez)
