22nd National Bible Congress

Saw this tarp in front of the hotel venue

Around 245 priests, nuns and lay delegates attended the 22nd National Bible Congress initiated by the Episcopal Commission on the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA) of the Catholic Bible’s Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) at the Golden Prince Hotel here in Cebu last February 5 to 8, 2018.

The theme for this year is “Becoming Servant-leaders of the Word in the Church Today.” This is in line with the CBCP’s 7th year of preparation on the occassion of the 500th year of Christianity. This year is called the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons.

Taken during my arrival at the venue

Unfortunately, I was not among the participants. I went there upon knowing that I have some SVD confreres who attended the event. Silip-silip lang, and doing some interview for our radio broadcast. I found out that Sr. Miriam Alejandrino, OSB, Fr. Dennis Aquino and Mr. Noe Dora were among the speakers.

The National Bible Assembly gathered 60 participating dioceses around the country.

Welcome to the International Eucharistic Congress 2016 Pavilion Groundbreaking Ceremony

This is what I like most about being involved in media ministry. You get invited in press conferences and most important events. Today, I would like to inform everyone that I was there during the groundbreaking ceremony of the  International Eucharistic Congress 2016 Pavilion last February 15 at the grounds of Seminario Mayor de San Carlos in Mabolo, Cebu City. Yes, the Archdiocese of Cebu will host the 51st International Eucharistic Congress.

Cardinal Vidal Remembers His Participation in 1933 International Eucharistic Congress

Cardinal Vidal Remembers His Participation in 1933 International Eucharistic Congress

 

An International Eucharistic Congress is a gathering of people aimed at the promotion and awareness of the centrality of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Church. This event normally takes places every four years. The last time it landed on Philippine soil was in 1933 and the 37th edition. On a side note, Cardinal Vidal was only 6 years old at this time and he remembered with joy that he was one of the first communicants at the conclusion of the Eucharistic Congress.

 

The 2016 theme will be “Christ in You, our Hope and Glory” (Col. 1:27). It shall involve significant catechesis and engaging testimonies, cultural and social events, moments of friendship and gathering of people who recognize that the risen Christ, celebrated and prayed, is the heart of their life experience.
