CFC Singapore Joins ANCOP Global Walk

E-mail Print PDF

ancop global walk 2014_resized On the morning of May 25th 2014, almost a hundred CFC Singapore members along with their families and friends joined the rest of the world in the annual ANCOP Global Walk. With the goal of supporting over 50 marginalised children in the Philippines in its Child Sponsorship Program (CSP), this 2.5km walk stretched from the Marang Trail in Harbourfront to the Henderson Waves in Henderson Road. What seemed to be an uneventful walk was made to be quite exciting as the organisers grouped the participants and asked them to complete a series of tasks in each so called “pit stop” Amazing Race-style:

A – Take a group selfie and send to the ANCOP team

N – Do the unity step after completing the Marang Trail

C – Comedy stop to prepare something fun (e.g. knock knock jokes, pick-up lines)

O – Do the group wave at Henderson Waves

P – Do the flash mob with the Creatives group

The morning concluded with a group photo with the participants.

Indeed, spending the Sunday morning with the rest of the community has never been this fun and fulfilling knowing that each step aids in the education of underprivileged children.

Till the next ANCOP Global Walk!

CFC Singapore relives the “Story of Our Lives” during its 27th Anniversary

E-mail Print PDF

On the afternoon of May 4th 2014, over 500 members of the CFC Singapore community gathered in the brand new UE Convention Centre to celebrate their 27th Anniversary. After the opening worship led by Elmer Lobusta, the festivities began with a trip down memory lane through a song and dance number from the Creatives Group featuring an original composition that narrated the history of CFC in Singapore. This was followed by colorful presentations from each chapter with singing and dancing by couples and members of all family ministries. Between the chapter performances, William Villaviray, head of the North Chapter, and his family composed of his wife, Susan, and children – Miles, Seann, and Larah, gave powerful sharings on their journey with the community, overcoming challenges and looking forward to a long future and greater service with CFC.

Midway through the afternoon, everyone was serenaded by the SFC Couple Coordinators who performed their song number that won second place in the talent competition during the recent SFC ICON. CFC SG’s National Head, Patrick Thong, then delivered an exhortation on how CFC is passionately witnessing in Singapore as evidenced by the strengthening of its membership through transitioning SFCs into CFC as they start their new families, bringing them into the community; by providing a home away from home for weary travellers and welcoming local Christians; and by sending out missionaries to other countries to help build the church of the home and the church of the poor. At this time, the CFC SG Mission Ready Teams launched the Mission Volunteers Manual that they created as a guide for those who go on mission trips outside of Singapore. Patrick led the pray over for the new couples in CFC and their families, for the Singaporean members who continue to be in the community even the inactive ones, for the youth leaders, and for the international missionaries. He closed with a call for all members to renew their commitment to the CFC Covenant by reading and pledging to the statutes of their Covenant Card.

The anniversary celebration ended with a praisefest led by Rudy Dimayacyac followed by the Holy Eucharist officiated by CFC SG’s Spiritual Director, Rev. Fr. Stephen Yim. While the event started with a view of the past 27 years, it ended with the anticipation of a vibrant and blessed future for CFC in Singapore.

OLSS Pentecost Celebration 2014_07 June (Sat), 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

E-mail Print PDF

Dear North Chapter bros & sis,

With regards to the Pentecost celebration on 07 June (Saturday), 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm (after the monthly Tagalog Mass), Our Lady Star of the Sea (OLSS) parish have requested CFC to do some presentations as part of the overall program for an evening of entertainment, games and fellowship.

This is another good opportunity for our beloved CFC community (including our Family Ministries) to show the parish that we are really ONE with the Catholic church by simply & actively participating in parish/church initiated activities and/or events.

Thus, we would like to request our CFC Chapter members, especially those who are parishioners of OLSS to make some suggestions on the type of presentation (song or dance or both, games, etc) & to form the group(s), preferably couples, youths & kids. But more IMPORTANT than being part of the presentations is to JOIN us on the actual day of the event. Need to get back to the parish coordinators on or before 22 May.

Also, on top of the presentations, we are also requested to bring along some food for the agape fellowship and community sharing. Thank you in advance for your support to this parish event.

God Bless,

William & Susan
