Welcome to BLD Toronto!

We are a communion of families, and a community of persons, called together as
ONE PEOPLE through the moment of encounter and a process of renewal to a relationship of faith, hope, and love with God. We are reconciled with the Father by our saving faith in Jesus Christ, by renewing trust in the Holy Spirit, and by our uniting compassion with one another. We are blessed with personal gifts – spiritual and natural, innate or acquired – which we yield to the Word and the Spirit. Read more...

FROM THE DISTRICT COUNCIL OF STEWARDS


On August 4, 2016, Bukas Loob sa Diyos (BLD) Foundation, Inc. held a groundbreaking ceremony to jumpstart the construction of a Church beside the BLD Covenant House and Retreat Center in Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines.

 

For over 15 years now, the BLD Covenant House has become a source of blessings for many BLD families, married couples, solo parents, singles and youth whose lives were changed and renewed after encounter weekends with the Lord, and likewise it has become a preferred venue for retreats, seminars and conferences by other Christian communities, parishes, schools, institutions and other organizations.

 

Our Community Spiritual Director, His Excellency Most Rev Angel N. Lagdameo, D.D., who presided the groundbreaking ceremony, has envisioned the Covenant House to be a complete Prayer Sanctuary. It is his ardent desire that a CHURCH with a multi-purpose hall be built within the area. This House of Prayer is intended not only for BLD members, but for neighboring barangays and other religious groups as well, who seek to enrich their spiritual lives.

 

The BLD Council of Servant Leaders was put to task by Most Rev Angel N. Lagdameo, D.D. to undertake the construction of the project. The Church we plan to build has a 300-seating capacity with a Multi-Purpose Hall that can accommodate 500 devotees. The project is estimated to cost P30 Million pesos.

 

On behalf of the BLD Council of Servant Leaders, it is in this light that we knock at your generous hearts and request that you be part of this valuable project. Next Friday, March 3 and on April 7, there will be a second collection at the First Friday Mass for this purpose.

 

Thank you very much and may you be blessed much more. Deut 8:18 affirms: “You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may confirm His covenant that He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.





FROM THE TREASURY MINISTRY

Charitable tax receipts are available for pick up from the BLD office. After March 3, all unclaimed tax receipts will be mailed out to the addresses that Treasury has on file.
