Quezon City – To assist the different groups of young people in living up their faith and Gospel values, the professed students and college seminarians assigned in the different Basic Ecclesial Communities of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish initiated the Formative Encounter.
The recent encounter, held last November 3, 2013 at IHMP Jerusalem Hall, centered its theme on the conformity of one’s personal values with those of the community and the church. At least 50 youth joined Bro. Rheadh R. Dela Torre, CMF in discussing the subject matter. The first encounter was held last September 1, 2013 at the Claret Seminary Fr. Rhoel Gallardo, CMF Audio Visual Room. Bro. Dante Boringgot, CMF led the participants in identifying their values as the starting point of the whole formation activity.
Formative Encounter is done every first Sunday of the month. The said activity also aims to gradually form the future leaders of the communities.
