CFC Vietnam Celebrates 16 Wonderful Years
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
This year's celebration of the founding of CFC Vietnam 16 years ago was truly a huge success! It took place last August 17,2014 at the Nha Tho Tan Dinh, otherwise known as the "Pink Church" among us Filipinos in Vietnam. In terms of the love, time, resources, talents and hard work, put into it by our highly motivated brethren from CFC, this year's celebration was the best one so far, according to Francis Macatol, the CFC Vietnam Head.
 
The program started with a Holy Mass at around half-past eight in the morning, with Fr. Rino Venturin as the main celebrant, together with Fr. Christian Limbaring, Fr. Dante Quidayan , Fr. Resty Audal,Jr. and Fr. Orven Gonzaga as co-celebrants. During the homily, Fr. Rino reminded CFC Vietnam that in the effort to be Alter Christus (“another Christ”), it is important to make sure that each person not 'take the place of GOD’ but make themselves co-partners with Him. He added, “Our job as children of God is to be Christ-like, with the Blessed Virgin Mary as our link to the Savior.” 
 
After the Mass, a video presentation prepared by Chris Ordinario, was shown in honor of departed brother Steve Manayon and sisters Shiela Rosales and Emma Villarint. There was a moment of silence, and a communal prayer was offered to them after the presentation. 

Thanks to dynamic couple Obet and Hyatt Reyes for preparing an ice-breaker called "Da Who", CFC members had a lot of fun, with the activity setting the festive mood for the entire day.
 
After a brief talk by Macatol, CFC took a moment to honor leaders Francis and Tinay (CFC), Litz Sanchez (Handmaids), Chris Calimbas (SFC), George Rosales (SOLD), Odilon and Rowena Barbosa (Music Ministry), Chito and Nesnie Doron, (YFC/ KFC), Josa (SFC-PMH) and Jovy Malit. Four Filipino priests, 9 Vietnamese priests and the expats were likewise honored.
 
Odilon Barbosa, JR Soriano and Chito Durban led the praise and worship. To end the celebration, a video message from CFC Executive Director George Campos and wife Cynthia, Country Head Aldy Katigbak and wife Joy, Renan Danganan, Ully and Family, Shok Ariola, Kirby Llaban, and some CFC, SOLD, HOLD, SFC and YFC was shown. 

Other brethren who sent out messages were leaders from HOLD-Maryland, USA and YFC-Sychelles, Africa, YFC-Silang, Cavite and 2 famous young celebrities, Makisig Morales and Alwyn Uytingco. (Ed Ubaldo)
