1. Introduction

Last year Filipina Megan Young won the Miss World beauty pageant. She later made headlines over her opposition to the Filipino government’s promotion of birth control.  We expect beauty queens to be in favour of world peace and furry animals, but when one says something that cuts so close to home people are amazed!  Megan says she thinks sex is for marriage and if a man isn’t willing to wait he’s not the man for her.  She thought the pressure to engage in pre-marital sex, supposedly safeguarded by birth control, often represents a failure by men to value women sufficiently, and an unwillingness to engage in self-sacrifice and commitment.  She is also no fan of easy divorce.  To the astonishment of the secular media, this very modern girl thinks love, sex, marriage and family go together and what God has joined men should not divide.

In this section we feature the commitment, aspirations, and expectations of each area as they all journey towards the next 25 years and beyond as one community of the Lord.

2014 the Beginning of the Next 25 Years

2014 is the first year of what we now call THE NEXT 25 YEARS.  This reference to our future alongside THE NEW EVANGELIZATION, a byword within the Catholic Church, expresses a new fire for our faith and a new power of the Holy Spirit in the face of the challenges confronting us in this modern world.  Above all, the appeal of THE NEXT 25 YEARS is to continue on to be families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth.

In NSW, the Local Area Council’s planning for 2014 is special and important.  We have carefully discerned and identified some key points to strengthen our community in the coming year.  Our plans are as follows;

CFCA Tagudar Unit pitches in for Leyte Medical Mission PDF Print E-mail

marc viax_3When Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck the mostly Visayan region of the Philippines in late November of last year, it left behind a trail of destruction with lives lost particularly in the province where I came from, Leyte.

The once World War II stronghold of Japanese resistance was now left without electricity, food, water and shelter to thousands of people displaced. The local government was left without a limb as it struggled to maintain order from the devastation of Mother Nature.

My hometown of Palompon, in the 3rd district of Leyte, was no exception. Roughly 100 km southwest of capital Tacloban, Palompon faced neighbouring Cebu and Bohol, which were also relentlessly battered by howling winds and pouring rain.

As with the rest of the towns of Leyte, Palompon sustained damages to infrastructure, housing, agriculture and fishery. Not a few lives were lost. The ceiling of Palompon's Roman Catholic Church-- the oldest in Leyte built in 1784, flew sideways and landed in somewhere else's property.

Commitment

CFCA Queensland is committed to carrying out the mission and vision of our community, hence will commit itself to:

- Uniting and working with the larger body of CFCA in carrying out the National plans and strategies, and being under the guidance and direction of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Australia.

- Pastoral care of CFCA Qld members through formation trainings, workshops, retreats where love for God, for community and for each other will be manifested and where their Spiritual gifts and talents will surface, which in turn will build the body and will equip us to fulfil the Lord’s mandate for CFCA – to be Families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth and to bring glad tidings to the poor.
