Dear CFCUSA Brethren,
Br. Cholo Labog, CFCUSA Country Coordinator, has given me the honor of announcing to all of you that CFCUSA is blessed to have a new set of National Council with a new National Director that will serve from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2018 (see attached official memo). It is my prayer and request that you afford them the same support and prayers you have afforded me and the current National Council. We will still be here until the end of the year, and after that, you can count on your current NC to continue the same level of passion in serving the Lord through all of you. Again, with great joy and excitement let us welcome the new set of CFCUSA-National Council and offer them our prayers. Thank you once again for all your love and support through the years. May God be praised!
Your brother in Christ,
National Director, Couples for Christ USA
Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”
Indeed God is FAITHFUL! Last October 22-23, 2016 was an unforgettable and blessed weekend for 5 couple-members of Couples for Christ (CFC) Hawaii. Love conquered them as they renewed their love in a back-to-back Marriage Enrichment Retreats (MER) I and II held at the Saint Anthony Retreat Center in Honolulu. The service team members who spent long hours of planning were all inspired as well. We were also blessed with dedicated leaders and speakers from CFC Southern and Northern California.
The MERs have various elements that work together in order to provide the couple‑participants with an overall environment that is conducive to learning about and living out God’s plan and call to them. These elements are PRAYER, TEACHINGS, COUPLE DISCUSSIONS AND ACTION PLANNING.
The couple participants were also given time to share their experiences, insights and learning from the retreat.
The summit of the retreat was when the couples proceeded to the Co-Cathedral of Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus to attend a Mass and be given a special blessing and renewal of marriage vows by Rev. Father Gregorio Honorio.
The back-to-back MERs were truly life-giving experiences to reaffirm God’s love and mercy to every FAMILY. The MERs inspired so much hope and brought about healing each couples’ marriage.
