RE: “LAY, CLERGY AND RELIGIOUS ENCOUNTER”
Reverend Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers and Sisters:
As the Diocese of Paranaque celebrates the Year of the Clergy and the Consecrated Persons, the Diocesan Commission on BEC Animation & New Evangelization together with the Board of Clergy Concerns and Diocesan Council of the Laity is holding a joint activity which we call “Lay, Clergy and Religious Encounter”. This “encounter” aims to help the laity, the clergy and the religious develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of one another’s charism, strengths and weaknesses, as well as a stronger sense of unity with one another.
This is a diocesan-wide endeavor covering all the 52 parishes of the diocese. This will be held at Club Balai Isabel, Talisay, 4220 Batangas on September 14 & 15, 2018. The participants are the Parish Priests, Parish Pastoral Council Heads, BEC Commission Heads, and a member of the religious community in each parish.
Transportation in going to and from the venue of the encounter shall be handled by the respective parishes. Program on the 1st day shall start at 2PM and end at 9PM, while that of the 2nd day shall start at 7AM and end at 12NN. The cost of transportation, food, use of facilities and room accommodation are to be shouldered by the parishes.
The cost of food, use of facilities and room accommodation is P2,000.00 per participant. Confirmation of attendance and corresponding payment through check payable to Club Balai Isabel by each parish is therefore needed to make the final reservation with the venue. Said confirmation and check payment should be submitted to your Vicariate BEC Coordinators not later than August 31, 2018.
We hope for your positive response to this encounter as we aim to become effective “kalakbay, kaakbay at kaagapay” with one another.
