“Church of the Poor in PCP II” this June



The second installment of CFA’s “Church of the Poor” lecture series is set for June 17, starting 8am. Venue is CFA’s Lagerwey Hall, 4427 Old Sta. Mesa, Manila.

The theme: “The Church of the Poor in PCP II.” Inspired by Pope Francis and his visit we re-visit now the vision and program of PCP II on the Church Renewed: The Church of the Poor. It would be helpful to know how the Church of the Poor is being realized, since the convocation of PCP II in 1991. Bishop Broderick Pabillo, DD, will deliver the lecture.

CFA launched the series “to keep alive the fire of Pope Francis’ visit to the Philippines.” While he was here, the Pope urged Filipino Catholics to think about, and do more, for what he calls “the last, the least and the lost.”

A lecture fee of P500 per participants covers the certfifcate of attendance, snacks and lunch, the series is open to the public.
