The Roman Catholic Diocese of Cubao is preparing an Online Advent Recollection led by the Lay Formation Ministry and Social Communications Ministry to be streamed live this December 5, Saturday, at 8 am.
The theme for the recollection is “Santatlo ng Cubao: Nagsusulong sa Pakikipag-isa, Misyon at Pagbabalik-loob tungo sa ika-500 taon ng Kristiyanismo sa Pilipinas.”
This aims to prepare the faithful as we move closer to the 500th year anniversary of Christianity in the Philippines.
Cubao Bishop Honesto Ongtioco believes it is important for the faithful to gather, even just online, for them to reflect, pray, and be able to respond to the needs of people today in the midst of a pandemic.
“Despite what we are experiencing now, your Diocese of Cubao wants us to be together especially as we move towards the fifth century of Christianity in the Philippines… Let us meditate, pray and respond together,” Bishop Ongtioco said.
Among the recollection speakers are Ms. Ilsa Reyes and Fr. Domie Guzman, SSP.
The program will begin with a Eucharistic Celebration which can be viewed on the Facebook page and YouTube Channel of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cubao.
The Bishop hopes that through such virtual gatherings, our faith and relationship with other Christians will be deepened despite the absence of physical gatherings.
