RE: FAMILY IS A GIFT Awareness Conference
Dear Fathers, Monsignori, Brothers and Sisters:
Greetings of Peace!
The Diocesan Commission on the Family is partnering with “Family is a Gift” in providing relevant formation programs that promote family values to strengthen the family. “Family is a Gift” is an apostolate initiated by Couples for Christ to uphold the dignity and beauty of the family by advocating pro-family values, equipping couples and family members to build strong families, and by providing an environment of mutual support and caring. They provide relevant formation programs on several topics about the different concerns experienced by most families nowadays.
In this regard, we will have a conference to be facilitated by “Family is a Gift” team on March 28, 2020, Saturday at the Diocesan Center of Evangelization from 8:00 AM up to 12:00 PM.
The said event seeks to assess and respond to the formation needs of the different parishes in the six vicariates in the diocese.
We request all parish and vicariate coordinators and pastoral workers of the Commission on the Family to be present at the said event.
Sincerely yours in Christ
