CFC Canada Eastern Regional Conference – The Beloved Weekend
Friday, September 5, 2014
From July 25th to 27th, Mohawk College’s McIntyre Performing Arts Centre in Hamilton, Ontario played host to the Eastern Region Beloved Weekend. Nearly 900 delegates from the Greater Toronto Area, Windsor, St. Catharines, Ottawa, Montréal, and even as far away as New Jersey, Kenya, China, and Indonesia, gathered to witness to God’s love and the guiding hand of Mary in CFC Canada over the past years.

Opening night of the conference featured the Choirs of Mary competition, where each delegation regaled the crowd with their musical talents as they performed covers of hymns, rewritten classics to honour our Blessed Mother, and even original musical compositions.

CFC was blessed to have had Nonoy Dalman, Noli Manuel, Eric delos Reyes, Ricky Cuenca, and Rouquel & Nina Ponte on hand to share the messages of the weekend. Inspiring sharers also related their struggles and triumphs in their faith journeys, adding life to the various talks.

Each session was prefaced by deeply stirring creative numbers, songs and dances calling us to joy, hope, action, and reflection. It was beautiful to see the combined efforts of the Family Ministries in every aspect of the weekend, from the preparation of the creative segments to handling logistics and production, ensuring the smooth execution of the weekend – truly a testament to our community working for and with each other not only as individual families, but as the wider CFC family.

The Saturday program concluded with the “Groove 70s” night, a chance for brothers and sisters to dance the night away in their best disco finery. The room was a sea of afros, bell-bottoms, and sequins as each delegation presented 70's-themed dance numbers, proving that they can still “bust a move” with the best of them!

Sunday began with the celebration of the Mass with Bishop Douglas Crosby of the Diocese of Hamilton, whose message of hope carried through the day’s session to the afternoon’s praise fest led by Noli Manuel. One of the most beautiful moments of the weekend occurred here, as spouses linked hands and arms and worshipped the Lord together, singing out their love for God and one another—a song of love from the beloved to the Lover, and a perfect end to an amazing and blessed weekend of love.
