AFCCPC 2012 REGIONAL CONVENTION: A BLESSED WEEKEND

 


The three-day AFCCPC 2012 Regional Convention held at the Double Tree-Hilton in Toronto ended September 9, 2012 with spiritual refreshment and healing to hundreds of its participants. Hosted by the Filipino-Canadian Catholic Charismatic Prayer Communities (FCCCPC), this year’s theme as inspired by Psalm 20 and 1 John 5 is: "Victory is to the Anointed, to the believer, whose faith conquers the world."

It was a Spirit-filled weekend of praise and worship, informative and awakening talks from renowned speakers, intercessory and healing, sharing, prayers and reflections.

Members of the FCCCPC like the Couples for Christ, Divine Mercy Apostolate of Canada, Elim Prayer Community, El-Shaddai DWXI-PPFII, Holy Family Group, Holy Redeemer Pilgrims’ Choir, Joy of the Lord Prayer Group, Living for Christ Prayer Community, Light of Jesus Community-Canada, Shalom Intercessory Cell Group, the Loved Flock Catholic Charismatic Renewal Ministries, the Lord is my Shepherd Prayer Group, the Yahweh El Shaddai led short Praise and worships before the main sessions. They also showcased their own music ministry`s way of praising during the 1st night`s Festival of Praise.

Simultaneous talks for the kids, youth and adults were also held. For the adult`s talks, the speakers included: Bishop Oscar Solis (Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Fr. Ben Ebcas, Jr. (Pastor, Our Lady of the Assumption Church), Deacon Carlos Nogueira (Archbishop`s Liaison to the Charismatic Renewal in the Archdiocese of Toronto), Deacon Bob Rosales (Spiritual Adviser, FCCCPC), Bro. Bob Canton (National Coordinator, AFCCPC), and Bro. Don Quilao (Head Servant, FCCCPC).

For the three days, Mass was celebrated by Bishop William McGrattan (Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Toronto), Cardinal Thomas Collins (Archbishop of Toronto), and Bishop Oscar Solis (Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles). Special tribute of dancing, singing and praying of the Rosary were also offered to Mama Mary on her birthday last 08 September 2012.

The participants also waited for the Prayer and Healing Sessions of Bro. Bob Canton. Depending on one`s faith, healing came to those who were in wheel-chairs and with crutch; to those who were deaf, and to those who were sick physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The convention brought inspiration, healing, peace-of-mind and for one lady, a great miracle came true when she won two round trip tickets to the Philippines. As one emcee said, "God grants miracles and He is never late." (by Corrie Bajao)

 


 

Passing On the Torch

When Jess and Marilen Angeles stood up after our Friday corporate worship a little over a month ago to bring us the news that they were moving on to another assignment, perhaps the last place they expected to be was back in the vineyard of St. Catharines.  After a period of careful discernment by our Toronto Administering District, Jess and Marilen have been named as the new District Shepherds for St. Catharines to take over the post vacated by Olie and Menchu Ealdama.   Olie and Menchu are the new DLCs for the Witness and Coach Development Ministry in BLD Toronto


We are glad to welcome Jess and Marilen back among us.  We worked so closely with them when they were Mission DCS.  We were encouraged by the clear and genuine interest they showed in moving our St. Catharines DIP forward.  They have been supportive of the various initiatives we have undertaken and we are sure that they will continue to keep the fire burning in our St. Catharines Community.


We pray that the Holy Spirit pour out on Olie and Menchu, Jess and Marilen all the blessings and graces they need as they take on their new assignments.

Saying Goodbye To Our Outgoing DIP Shepherd Couple

click here for pictures of the presentation

The BLD St. Catharines Community took the opportunity to say goodbye to outgoing DIP Shepherd Couple, Olie and Menchu Ealdama, at the community picnic held on August 5, 2012 at Club LaSalle.  The DCS presented a number of tokens of appreciation for their service to our community.  Following is the farewell message given by Avic Robles:

Dear Olie and Menchu,

The Lord has called you to work in another field and it is time for us to part our ways.  We are forever grateful to God for having sent you our way.  You have faithfully shepherded our community for the past six years.  We have prayed together, walked the same road together, worked side by side, ate at the same table, cried through hurts and sorrows, agreed to disagree sometimes, always letting the peace of God reign in our hearts.  We have learned to say Jesus loves you, I love you.  I forgive you, please forgive me.  Yes, we have conquered challenges and shared successes.  There was plenty of laughter too.  Through it all, it is the joy of the Lord in us that prevailed.  So though parting is such sweet sorrow, now is not the time to cry.

We shall terribly miss you, don’t doubt that.  But for now, we want, most of all, to celebrate the gift that you have been to us.  You have always given 101 percent of yourselves in your service of the Lord, all for His glory.  You recognized the uniqueness of our community and saw the gifts and potentials of the members so you have always pushed us to do our best.  You have always given us a sense of belonging to the bigger flock of BLD by always ensuring that we are included in most of our mother district’s activities at BLD Toronto, as well as the Global BLD family.

Although we did not become a full-fledged district under your term, there is no one here who will disagree when I say that you have accomplished much for the time you were with us -- your mission has been fulfilled.  I quote from 1st Cor. 3:6-9: “What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe — as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labour. For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building.” So Olie and Menchu, it is God who makes all things grow and you can be sure as he has promised, you will be rewarded according to your own labour.

We send you off with God’s blessings taken from Numbers 6:24-26: “The Lord bless you and keep you! The Lord let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!  The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!”

Olie and Menchu, you will always have a special place in the hearts of the members of BLD St. Catharines.  We pray that you abide in the true vine, as you are sent in your new mission as DLC Coordinators for Witness and Coaching Development Ministry.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.  We love you.  God bless you!!!

Fare Thee Well, Olie and Menchu

Tony Ng, the new DCS for Mission announced at the General Assembly held last July 13 that Olie and Menchu Ealdama, after having served for two consecutive terms as St. Catharines’ District Shepherds, will be leaving to assume a new assignment in our Toronto Administering District.  Tony expressed appreciation for how Olie and Menchu diligently shepherded St. Catharines over the last 6 years with the main objective of getting it elevated from a District-in-Process into a Full-Fledged District.   While it is not quite there, it is “on the cusp”.

Having fulfilled all requirements to become a Full Fledged District, Tony affirmed that the objective is “not only within sight but within reach”.  These requirements include having covenanted disciples, teachers, sharers and all DCS are worship leaders.

Tony expressed his joy on how much St. Catharines has developed and grown over the years.  He said this could not have been achieved without the “unstinting patience and commitment” of all levels of leadership and the “active involvement” of the members.

An announcement as to who will be the new District Shepherrds for St. Catharines will be made soon.

Olie and Menchu will be among those who will be installed and anointed for their new responsibilities by Toronto’s Spiritual Director, Fr. Ben Ebcas,.  This will take place following the celebration of the Eucharist on August 3rd at the Our Lady of Assumption Church.

Olie and Menchu, we pray that you may be rewarded with abundant blessings for the works you have done in BLD St. Catharines.

THE NEW EVANGELIZATION

(Excerpted from the Remarks given by Tony Ng, Incoming DCS for Mission, Toronto District
at the General Assembly, July 13, 2012)

Tony spoke of the call to a “New Evangelization” which our Global Spiritual Director, Archbishop Angel Lagdameo, delivered in his homily on the occasion of BLD Manila’s 27th anniversary celebration last June 20 at which he and his wife Angie were present.  After 27 years, what does a “New Evangelization” mean for BLD?   It means a renewed spiritual activity, new spiritual efforts generating a New Energy and New Responsibilities.  This requires a New Ardour, New Methods and New Expressions.  It is a call for a deepening of our faith, to believe in the gospel, and to spread it to a world held in the grip of secularization.  Archbishop Lagdameo pointed to the Virgin Mary as “the Star of the New Evangelization”, for she serves as a vibrant example of how to live the gospel. 

The Relevance of the “New Evangelization”for BLD St. Catharines  -  In Mt 28:19, Jesus commanded His disciples to “ Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.”  Having been evangelized ourselves, we should evangelize others so they too will experience what we have experienced – to have a personal encounter with Jesus Christ.  We are all called to be missionaries but to be effective missionaries we need to have Christ within us. It is a clear call for a renewed relationship amongst us, not on the basis of our intellect, human desires and preferences but to live in accord with Christ’s Gospel, to do what is pleasing to the Lord. 

Like any other community, BLD St. Catharines must have its own share of conflicts of various roots and reasons.  We offer these conflicts at the foot of the Cross, forgiving others as our Heavenly Father forgives us for it is only when our hearts are clear and free of any unforgiveness can the Lord begin to transform us.  

BLD St. Catharines is not just expected to become a Full Fledged District but it will be called upon to build other communities of faith in nearby areas at the leading of the Holy Spirit.    When that happens, everyone will have a role.  Everyone counts! In pursuing our mission of building communities of faith, we will encounter oppositions and struggles including our own weaknesses. These struggles will keep our feet on the ground, reminding us that we are humans desperately in  need of God’s grace, leading us to surrender to God in humility,  just as St. Paul proclaimed to the Corinthians:  “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness... Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.”  (2 Cor 12:  9,10)

St. Catharines is exhorted to spread this New Evangelization with New Ardour, New Methods, New Expressions, New Energy & New Responsibilities.  

To God be the glory!

Parting Remarks from our Mission DCS

(Foreword: Effective July 6, 2012, at the installation of Toronto’s newly emerged DCS, Jess and Marilen Angeles will be handing over the reins of DCS for Mission to their successors, Tony and Angie Ng. Last Friday, June 22nd, following St. Catharines’ corporate worship, Jess and Marilen gave the following remarks.)

To our dear BLD St. Catharines’ Family,

Jess: Tonight, Marilen and I wish to thank everyone for the support that you have given us. We thank God for giving us people who are not only committed to do God’s work but people whose hearts are filled with love for the Lord and for the people He has given us to care for. We could never have accomplished what needed to be done without the help of your DIP Shepherds, your DCS and your DLCs whose leadership, commitment and generosity are highly commendable. To you Olie and Menchu, Romy and Minda, Poch and Avic, Cip and Emy and Roy and Carmen, the DLCs and every member of this wonderful Community, may God’s favor and guidance be with you as you continue to pursue God’s work here in His St. Catharines’ vineyards. We know that God has great plans for this Community. We believe that your perseverance will pay off and that God will continue to reward you with a rich harvest far beyond your imagining. We give you our blessings of peace and continued empowerment from the Holy Spirit and still continue to hope that soon St. Catharines will join the ranks of BLD’s full-fledged districts.

Marilen: This is not good bye yet, because we will still be around as servants of the Lord in BLD. But as temporary parting words, we would like to leave behind some things to ponder on while you do your work for God. It was written by Susan Polis Schuts in a book entitled ‘One World, One Heart’.

We need to feel more to understand others

We need to love more to be loved back

We need to cry more to cleanse ourselves

We need to laugh more to enjoy ourselves.

We need to be honest and fair when interacting with people.

We need to establish a strong ethical basis as a way of life.

We need to see more than our own fantasies.

We need to hear more and listen to the need of others.

We need to give more and take less.

We need to share more and own less.

We need to realize the importance of the family as a backbone of stability.

We need to look more and realize that we are not so different from one another.

We need to create a world where we can trust one another.

We need to create a world where we can peacefully live the life we choose.

So brothers and sisters, love is the source of life in this Community. Keep that love burning, the excitement of planning things together, the excitement of doing things together, because love in Jesus is the future of your Community here in St. Catharines. Embrace all opportunities given you, here in BLD or in other pieces of God’s work outside of BLD. We believe that all of you are a “can do” people. You have the ability to climb the highest mountain, to score the deepest sea, and to soar the heavens with God’s help. All you need is to dream God’s dreams and place your trust in the Lord to make it happen. We believe that you have the power to do greater things for the Lord through our enabling Holy Spirit.

May God be with you.

ME #10 – A Concerted Effort in Evangelization

click here for more pictures

The ME #10 Weekend, held at La Consolata Missionaries on June 8-10, was a resounding success! On that weekend, our good Lord used different instruments to achieve His goal of bringing married couples into a closer relationship with Him and with each other. And these “different instruments” are what made this ME very special. This ME weekend departed from what has served as the template for a “regular” BLD ME Weekend with respect to the make-up of the Pastoral Team. St. Catharines’ ME #10 will go on the record books by being the first ME to have a priest, a deacon and a layperson sitting in for the priest as part of the Pastoral Team. Making up the rest of the “regular” pastoral team were sharers Pat and Rose Canlas and Lito and Arlene Martin from our Toronto administering district.



 

Deacon Bob Rosales Fr. Dominick Mbah, Lito & Arlene Martin, Pat & Rose Canlas
Olie Ealdama

This unprecedented event came about when, with the weekend fast approaching, Fr. Dominick Mbah advised that he could not get another priest to relieve him at the Toronto Pearson Airport where he is chaplain, and therefore he was going to be unavailable to preside over the talks on Saturday afternoon and evening, and again on Sunday morning. Upon consultation with the Toronto DCS, clearly inspired by the Holy Spirit they acted swiftly by empowering Olie Ealdama to sit in place of Fr. Dominick on Saturday, and Deacon Bob Rosales on Sunday. Olie, aside from himself being a sharer with his wife Menchu, has in the past helped and guided a number of presiding priests. Deacon Bob Rosales has served as a Deacon in the Toronto Archdiocese for the past 17 years and along with his wife Jeanette, are graduates of Toronto’s ME #11 held in June 20-22, 1997.


Despite the challenges we faced which included problems in recruitment, ME #10 forged on as we left everything in the hands of the Lord. The concerted efforts of Fr. Dominick, Deacon Bob and Olie, together with Pat and Rose and Lito and Arlene, led to a truly inspired and uplifting weekend. To them we give thanks for their spirit of generosity.


Abundant graces flowed, as evidenced by the testimonies of the ME 10 graduates – Jun & Mabel Apor, Nelson & Joy Bumanglag, Chad & Irene Cunningham and Eduardo & Nirby Fernandez. They will now be led in their own sponsorship of the next ME by their Class Shepherds, Cirilo and Magie Respicio.


We give thanks for the dedication and commitment of the sponsoring class of ME 9 – Gener & Corrie Bajao, Alex & Bale Calanog, Ryan & Sherry Zapata, Nelson & Jenny Flores, Martin & Marie Pinto and Jonathan and Jean Timaan. They stayed focussed on their tasks due in large part to the inspiration and guidance provided by their Class Shepherds, Val and Lina Ayroso, whose positive spirit and complete trust in the Lord rendered their whole undertaking victorious!


"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song. The Lord is the strength of His people, a fortress of salvation for His anointed one. Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever." (Ps. 28:7-9)

2012 Emergence - Introducing our New Mission DCS

 

Through the same nomination process undertaken in Toronto on March 10, 2012 which saw Philip and Clarita Malolos emerge as District Servant Leaders (see article immediately below), that same nomination process resulted in the emergence of Toronto’s new set of District Council of Stewards (DCS), as discerned by Manila’s Executive Council of Servant Leaders (ECSL).

Following their installation on July 1st, the Lord’s anointing will be with this new set of leaders as they officially assume governance of the Toronto District from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2015.  The new DCS and their respective posts are:  Pat & Rose Canlas (Evangelization), Herbert & Vangie Artes (Formation), Joey & Susan Linsao (Management), Tony & Angie Ng (Mission) and Ross & Rose Dioso (Pastoral). (To view announcement, click here.)

Tony & Angie Ng

 

Tony and Angie Ng, taking over from Jess and Marilen Angeles the post of DCS for Mission, will now oversee Toronto-administered DIPs, which include our own St. Catharines, GVO, Rochester and Cincinnati.  They shall oversee as well the DLCs (Coordinators) of Toronto’s Parish Services, Breaking the Yoke of Poverty Ministry (BYOP), and Mission Apostolate.


While they only immigrated to Canada in May 2007, their history with the BLD go back almost 20 years when they joined Manila’s ME #187 in January 1993.  In Manila, their gifts and talents were well utilized, as they were called to serve as District Instructors, and LSS and ME sharers.  They were Discipling Coordinators in 2001 and Teaching Coordinators in 2002 until they were emerged as part of Manila’s DCS body during its 2003 Emergence, as DCS for Management.

 

Tony and Angie are no strangers to St. Catharines.  They served as part of the Pastoral Team of ME #9, held on May 13-15, 2011.


In assuming the post of DCS for Mission of our Toronto Administering District, they will be vacating the post of DLCs for the Mission Apostolate, which they have held since 2009, where they constantly challenged their members to become innovative and pro-active.  But with their new responsibility, what the Mission Apostolate has lost, the BLD Toronto Community as a whole will gain as Tony and Angie are called on to a higher level of governance.


Tony clearly echoed these sentiments when we asked him how he and Angie felt about their new appointment.  He responded:  “We are acutely aware of the high expectations of our fellow members in the community for the new BLD leadership to be more proactive and responsive, at the least, for BLD to be on FIRE, inspired by the Holy Spirit”.


Indeed, let us keep Tony and Angie, as well as the rest of the DCS, in our prayers that they may be imbued with the Fruit of the Holy Spirit as they direct, form and support the people of God. We praise and thank the Lord for the gift of these brothers and sisters and pray that they may carry on their work with love, joy and patience. As they have generously responded to the Lord’s call to service, we trust Him to do as He says in Ps 32:8: “I will instruct them and show them the way they should walk; I will give them counsel and watch over them.”

2012 Emergence – We Have New District Servant Leaders

During the week of March 5, the BLD global community held a “General Emergence” to select those who will exercise the governance function of Executive Council of Servant Leaders (ECSL, Manila), and for all Full Term Districts, their respective District Servant Leaders (DSL) and District Council of Stewards (DCS).  In Toronto, “Nomination Day” was conducted on March 10, 2012.


On April 16th, BLD’s Global Spiritual Director, Archbishop Angel Lagdameo, announced the new roster of ECSL.  The newly emerged set of DCS should be announced before the end of May.


But of direct interest to St. Catharines is the announcement made on May 15th that the new DSL for Toronto and its Cluster are Philip and Clarita Malolos.  St. Catharines is part of the Toronto Cluster, along with 3 other DIPs (GVO, Cincinnati and Rochester) and 2 Full Fledged Districts (Detroit and Cleveland) (to view full announcement, click here).


Philip and Clarita will serve a term of 3 years, commencing July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2015.  Until his untimely death on February 28, 2012, Robert Kitane served as outgoing DSL along with his spouse Cely.  Cely has carried on the all important task of directly liaising Toronto’s emergence results with Manila.


Philip and Clarita are graduates of ME #2 held in 1992.  They are currently the DLCs for the Parish Services Ministry, a post they undertook in 2009.  From 2000-2003, they were tasked with the governance of the Toronto District as DCS for Mission.  They also served as District Development Deputy for North America.  Other ministries they have headed are the Praise Ministry, Family Life Apostolate and Teaching Ministry.  They are also currently Community Instructors and Prayer Leaders in Toronto.


We rejoice in the appointment of Philip and Clarita as District Servant Leaders.  They have manifested their faithfulness throughout the years and, without a doubt, their experience and insights will be of immeasurable value in the pursuit of God’s mission for the Toronto-administered Cluster.  Let us keep them in our prayers that the Lord will continue to pour out upon them His bounteous blessings as they serve our beloved community.

You Will Be Sorely Missed, Msgr. Wayne!

His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, announced on May 18th the appointment of Monsignor Wayne Kirkpatrick, P.H., as Auxiliary Bishop of Toronto, Ontario. He will assist the Archbishop of Toronto, His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins, in collaboration with three other Auxiliary Bishops: the Most Reverend John A. Boissonneau, William Terrence McGrattan and Vincent Nguyen.

 

Born June 5, 1957 in St. Catharines, Msgr. Wayne was ordained on September 1, 1984 and was assigned in the Diocese of St. Catharines where he served as assistant pastor and pastor in a number of parishes.  From 1990 to 1995, he was appointed to the post of Chancellor.  At the time of his appointment as the newest Auxiliary Bishop for Toronto, Msgr. Wayne was Rector of the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria, a post which he has held since August 2005.

 

It was as he served as pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas in the mid-1990’s that BLD first became known to Msgr. Wayne and he became one of its earliest supporters as our founding members were confronted with the challenges of starting and building a BLD outreach in St. Catharines.  Msgr. Wayne lent his support to the Community’s activities and many were the times when he celebrated mass for us.

Msgr. Wayne, words are not enough to express our deep gratitude – so we will just put it simply – “Thank You”.  We will keep you in our prayers as you embark on your new ministry.  Your well deserved appointment as Auxiliary Bishop once again points us to the fact that, truly, the Lord is a faithful God who fulfils His promises, as in Matthew 25: 21-22:  "Well done, good and trustworthy servant;  you have shown you are trustworthy in small things;  I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master’s happiness.”
