And what did we do in the Congress?
We prayed together, shared each other's lives, enjoyed each other's presence like brothers who have not seen each other for a long time.

AVT Clergy at 2nd NCCP

Through the kindness of benefactors, most, if not all, the activities in the Congress went very smoothly.  There were buses to bring us to the World Trade Center, venue of the Congress, and to bring us back to the parish of our foster families in Comembo, Diocese of Makati.

AVT Clergy at the 2nd National Congress of the Clergy

We were there!
And, through the grace of God, were moved and felt renewed.
Certainly, January 25 - 29, 2010 were certainly Spirit-filled days.
And during this period, this book was our constant companion.

Below is the booklet for the schedule of activities.

And so that we will always always these memorable days, we had this on which to write our thoughts and feelings.

Thank you very much, Lord, for the grace of the Congress!
