Martyrdom of St. John the Baptist
To the Local Superiors and Community Members
Dear Fathers and Brothers:
Greetings of Peace!
Come October, we will once again celebrate the feast of our Father Founder and with it, an event that will remind us of our membership to a missionary family, the ‘Universal Claretian Mission Day’ . This year’s themeis ‘Servants of the Word which leads to commitment’.
To help us make this mission day celebration more meaningful, we are sending materials that you can use for your activities along with the letter of the Father General. These are downloadable materials in the mission procure webpage also.
As part of the celebration, would it be possible for us to have at least ONE common activity that is on a national level like participating in a particular signature campaign (like abolish pork barrel system)? The Mission Procure can coordinate and collaborate with the programs of the JPIC commission should you find this relevant. We can also set up exhibits and intensify our campaign to continue our support for the typhoon Yolanda and Zamboanga siege victims. Just like last year, please feel free to organize activities that will make this celebration more meaningful.
As we walk in solidarity with the people , may we continue to support one another by being one with our brothers in whatever missionary circumstances they are in .
Thank you and may the Heart of our Blessed Mother keep us.
Fr. Angel C. Calvo, CMF
