Alter Christus, Nurtured by Mary: The CFC 33rd Anniversary
Friday, June 27, 2014
As early as 9:00 AM of June 21, 2014, convoys from the various areas in Metro Manila and nearby provinces were rolling in at the Quirino Grandstand, signifying the start of the whole-day activities for the celebration of the 33rd anniversary of Couples for Christ.

A milestone anniversary, this year's celebrations centered on the theme Alter Christus, Nurtured by Mary, in recognition of CFC's identity as another Christ, and in honor of the Blessed Mother for accompanying the community for three years in a row.

Highlights of the activities were the carnival booths, the Marian parade-cum-procession where numerous images of Mama Mary were showcased, the kite flying activities, the family variety show, and game show, among others.

However, on top of all these festivities, CFC also highlighted the renewal of marital vows of all the married couples at the Luneta, in the hopes of breaking a world record, at the same time sending a very strong message about marriage and the family, two institutions that CFC highly regards.

Reresentatives from thirty-three countries came during the anniversary celebrations. Guests from CFC mother community, Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon, the Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCBP) and Familia were also there to celebrate CFC's 33rd year.

CIO Head Rouquel Ponte read the message from the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Guissepe Pinto. He quoted, "Invoking the maternal intercession of the Virgin Mary, "Mother of the Church and of our faith" (LF 60), in the name of the Successor of Peter, I have the honor to transmit the Apostolic Blessing that Pope Francis imparts with affection to all those present at the thanksgiving liturgy and to all who participate in it spiritually."

After the Mass, Live to Worship, a praise concert, immediately followed. And for the first time after a long, long time, the skies did not bring rain to the CFC celebrations.

As a finale, a magnificent fireworks display dotted the night sky after the concert. (The CFC Docu Team)
