Courage Philippines Daet/Legazpi Chapters

Good news to our brothers and sisters in Daet, Camarines Norte and Legazpi, Albay! We have just established local Courage chapters in those places through the efforts of Bishop Gilbert Garcera  of Daet, Bishop Joel Baylon of Legazpi, and Bro. Rollie. This is our first provincial chapters outside of Manila and we hope and pray that more Church leaders will take the initiative to introduce our ministry to their respective localities. 

Dear brothers and sisters,

I have just accomplished my mission in Daet, Camarines Norte.

The good bishop, Most Rev. Gilbert Garcera, has agreed to take leadership in the establishment of Courage Daet chapter, with himself as the interim spiritual director. He has appointed a point contact person for this endeavor. I have also met with the first four (4) interested members of the group: F_, N_, B_ and O_. (names withheld for anonymity)

From these four (4) persons will come others who may express desire to be helped in building a chaste life, and in April 2014, we are being invited by the bishop, particularly those who have their origins here in Daet, to come and meet them in a private group discussion where we would already introduce to them how to conduct a support group sharing meeting. I am hoping that we would respond generously to the bishop's request and find time to come here in Daet, Camarines Norte.

Bro. Rollie


I am pleased to inform you that we have finalized the establishment of Courage chapters in two (2) areas of the Bicol region - Daet, Camarines Norte under Bishop Gilbert Garcera and Legazpi, Albay under Bishop Joel Baylon.

In line with this, I have just spoken to Bishop Garcera and he is willing to host Courage Manila and to include initial members from Daet and Legazpi to the following upcoming activities:

* April 13 (Palm Sunday) - evening Courage orientation and fellowship

* April 14 (Holy Monday) - whole day Courage workshop (code of conduct and how to run a sharing meeting)

* April 15 (Holy Tuesday) - whole day Courage Lenten Recollection (for Manila, Daet and Legazpi - with Bishop Gilbert as recollection master)

Please pray for these activities to be well-attended and to be a success.

Pro-Life Seminars 2014 by Michael Voris

February is Pro-Life month and we are again fortunate to have Mr. Michael Voris, a prominent Catholic apologist and pro-life speaker to give a series of talks that will help empower us lay people in promoting the pro-life cause. Kindly forward this invitation to all those who are interested. Thank you.

Greetings of Peace!

Every February, we celebrate Pro-life month, and for this February, we have invited renowned speaker Michael Voris of ChurchMilitant.TV. We are hoping that he can share with us his experience and his knowledge about the Pro-life fight in the United States, and how those lessons might apply to our struggle against the culture of death here in our country. We will invite both the clergy and the laity, especially family and life groups, to attend this one-day conference in order to prepare ourselves for the coming battles against the culture of death and the many evils it will spawn: the RH law, the legalization of abortion, the destruction of the Filipino family, and the LGBT agenda, among many others.

For this purpose, we invite your group/community to a one-day forum and workshop entitled:

“Effective Pro-Life Plans and Strategies” to be held at the St. Joseph Retreat House, Our Lady of Loreto Parish, Manzanas St. cor Bustillos St. ,Sampaloc, Manila on February 22, Saturday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Registration fee is P700.00, inclusive of snacks and lunch,kit and certificate.

The battle for life, family, and marriage is a crucial battle which the church in the Philippines and our society cannot afford to lose. We hope that this forum will help bring about ideas that will help us win the battle for life. We stand fast and we stand strong against these attacks on life and our Church.
