CMMF PHILIPPINES GATHER FOR ITS 25TH YEAR
More than 200 CMMF members from our 5 school communities came together on December 10, 2011 at Notre Dame of Dadiangas University in General Santos to celebrate its 25th year of existence in the country. More than 15 Brothers were around to accompany them.
Br. Manny de Leon, as provincial, challenged the group to be “inclusive” rather than be merely exclusive in their activities and presence as members. The challenges extend to their being active in animating and recruiting vocation to our way of life. He praised the enthusiasm, dedication and longing to imbibe the Champagnat and Marist Spirit in each sector. Video presentations were shown to attest to each CMMF sector’s authentic vision and mission.
The whole day activity was focused on 3 aspects: Liturgy, Video and musical presentations from each sector and picking up the challenges of Brother Provincial which they would formulate for the next five years.
The entire group is grateful to Brother John Tan and the entire NDDU CMMF community for the day’s preparation, activities and documentation. Strikingly, the entire group was provided with blue t-shirts adorned simply with a colourful CMMF logo.
