PHILIPPINES: Nuncio Asks Couples To Remain Missionaries

A true missionary never ceases to be a disciple of Jesus, said Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines Archbishop Gabriel Giordano Caccia, while presiding over Mass on the occasion of the 37th anniversary of Couples for Christ (CFC) in Manila, informs Matters India news website.

CFC is a lay Catholic movement dedicated to families. Founded in Manila in June 1981, it is currently present in more than a hundred countries. More than 50,000 Filipinos and delegates from other countries attended the annual event in Manila.

As a true Christian mission, CFC has become a movement to renew families and society. In 1995, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) declared it a private national association of lay people.

In 2005, it received the permanent approval of the Holy See as a private international association of the faithful under Canon Law.
