CFC Defines Mission to the Poor at the BCOP Summit
Friday, February 27, 2015
In the spirit of its twofold mission of Building the Church of the Home and Building the Church of the Poor, Couples for Christ held the BCOP Summit on January 10, 2015 at the SMX Convention Center. BCOP, or Building the Church of the Poor, is CFC’s umbrella organization for its work with the poor program.

Present in the event were BCOP leaders, led by BCOP head and International Council member Jose Yamamoto, and representatives from areas where CFC actively serves. Jaycee Dela Cruz, BCOP fulltime worker, opened the program with the morning worship. CFC ANCOP President and member of the CFC International Council Jimmy Ilagan welcomed the delegates.

Session 1, titled New Evangelization: Mission to the Poor, was delivered by Archbishop Jose Palma of Cebu who called Couples for Christ the joy and the hope of the Church. His talk highlighted the community’s special call to serve the least, the last, and the lost.

Jerry Pompong Jr. and Bernie Cueto shared their stories of loving the poor and being loved as well. Session 2 followed with CFC ANCOP Chairman Joe Yamamoto sharing the irreplaceable role of BCOP in the realization of the mission and its directions for 2015, which also happens to be the Year of the Poor.

Inspired by Mercy and Compassion, the theme of Pope Francis's visit to the Philippines, CFC, through BCOP, is affirmed and challenged to help make the country truly a nation of mercy and compassion.

The audience was given the opportunity to voice out their opinions in a panel discussion with Jimmy Ilagan as the moderator and Arnel Santos, Joe Yamamoto, and the Social Development Program Heads as the panelists. Synthesis and final announcements were given by Santos afterwards. Elmer Cadiz, who heads the CFC ANCOP operations, closed the summit with a powerful worship. (Aiza Garnica)
