SHORTLY ABOUT US
Welcome to the BLD District of Toronto!
We are the Lord’s under-shepherds. We will be witnesses to the Word that others may hear and understand. We will be counselors with the Spirit, that others may have healing and wholeness. We will be defenders in Christ of those who suffer injustice and oppression.
Mission & Vision
As a communion of encountered families, we are called by the Lord to build communities of disciples of Jesus Christ who, empowered by the Holy Spirit, will renew and strengthen our Christian faithful through programs of Christian encounter (Marriage, Family, Solo Parent, Singles, Youth Encounters and Life in the Spirit Seminars), of Spiritual Growth, of Pastoral Care and of Poverty Alleviation
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. We give freely and fully of ourselves, love and serve one another as we seek and proclaim God’s Kingdom. We commit, as disciples of Jesus, to speak the words and do the deeds of Christ among the Filipino people and among others to whom we are called by the Lord.
Our Disctrict Council of Stewards (DCS)
The DCS has governance over the BLD Toronto District, and it is conformed by five (5) DCS couples who leads an apostilate.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
