A pastoral response for drug addiction in Bontoc!
Bischop Valentin Dimoc did host a Forum with different steakholders from police, the health sector, DSWD and catholic mandated organisations in Teng-Ab Pastoral Complex on March 10.
The Emergency Response Team to Addiction from Baguio facilitated the morning session.
And the team will come back to work with 30 drug users from Bontoc – this will be the kick off for their rehabilitation program.
We hope this initiative will inspire more communities to come up with pastoral responses to various challenges in their respective communities.
No to Death Penalty!
No to Extra Judicial Killing!
YES to Justice and Peace!
The Apostolic Vicariate of Bontoc-Lagawe remindes the faithful in the Cordillera to obey the commandment of God.
Bishop Valentin Dimoc and representatives from the Vicariate (including the Kinghts of Columbus!) joined the Walk for Life on February 18 in Manila.
Let’s continue to be pro-life in the outreach in our communities!
Bishop Val will comission the 1st batch of F&L Core Teams of the Apostolic Vicariate of Bontoc-Lagawe on December 2-4 in Teng-Ab. Some selected teams will share their best practices on:
Couple Formation (Bontoc and Lagawe),
Natural Family Planing (Barlig and Bauko) and
Family Accompaniment (Paracelis: see picture).
All comissioned F&L Core teams will plan the implementation of the vicariate Family and Life Program and agree with the office on coaching sessions to improve or add to the existing F&L program in their respective Mission Parish.
This will inspire the 2nd batch of F&L Core Teams to plan and kick of their training modules for 2017.
On top: The Faith Formation and Integral Evangelization Team of Teng-Ab (Catechetical, Altar and Youth) and the Lay Formation and Development Team of Teng-Ab (SADC, F&L, Temporalities, LayForCe) will inspire the F&L Core teams: How to journey as families and with families during the Year of the BEC: A Communion of Communities or A Family of Families.
The activity will start Friday afternoon and we will return home on Sunday after breakfast. For more details please contact the Family and Life office in Teng-Ab.
Bischop Ledesma from Cagayan de Oro and his team on NFP will inspire the Family and Life Core Teams on November 4 -6 in Teng-Ab.
They have experience how F&L teams can collaborate with the DOH and LGU.
We would like to extend our invitation to F&L Core Teams and to our Barangay Health Workers, POP teams, Midwives, OBs and all those serving couples / parents. Lets team up and share our experiences and expertise!
