Family and Life Core Teams and members from Couple for Christ from different Mission Parishes meet in Lagawe for a training on Couple Formation. This was a great opportunity for experienced formators and interested couples, to learn more about the Popes Document “Amoris Laetitia” presented by Fr. John Habawel. The participants learned new methods, how to make couples communicate with each other using Bible Verses, ice breaker activities or games.
On Saturday we learned more about three different couple formation programs: a manual by Fr. Larry Tan SDB on Couple Encounter, the CFC programs on Couple Formation and a compilation of various activities of the vicariate F&L office.
Sr. Flora from Banaue was delighted to see the CFC of Mountain Province and Ifugao offering their support and training beyond their Mandated Organisation and helping in the vicariate Couple Formation of F&L.
Fr. Castor celebrated the culminating mass with us and send the participants back home to their respective Mission Parishes and BECs, so that we serve together the families with their many challenges.
