Family Rosary Crusade Philippines’ 8th General Assembly


Quezon City 15 June 2013 – Family Rosary Crusade (FRC), founded by Servant of God, FATHER PATRICK PEYTON of the Congregation of Holy Cross is holding its 8th General Assembly of all of its parish-based units across the country this June 22, 2013.

The assembly intends to help, guide and provide inspiration for its entire membership to help spread the message of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the importance of family prayer, especially the Most Holy Rosary, in protecting families and binding them together.

In this year’s gathering, the Archbishop of Manila, His Eminence JOSE ANTONIO G. CARDINAL TAGLE, DD, will serve as the keynote speaker on the chosen theme, “Believe, Live, and Lead the Faith like Mary.” Before Cardinal Tagle’s appointment as Cardinal and Archbishop of Manila, he always shared his spiritual wisdom to FRC members in the past, being a highly acclaimed Marian theologian and a advocate for the preservation of families and Christian values.

U.S. based Family Rosary International Director, Reverend Father JAMES PHALAN, CSC, returns to the Philippines to give his talk on “Year of Faith, New Evangelization and Family Rosary.” Long-time local radio-television personality and presently an anchor for Radio Veritas 846AM, Ms. ANGELIQUE LAZO will share her thoughts and experience on “Faith and Media.”

Three volunteers will share their experiences and discovery in faith - Ms. MELIN DE CASTRO-JAVILLONAR, Mr. OBET CABRILLAS, and Mr. ANDY OLGADO after the video presentation of the “60th Grand Anniversary Rosary Rally” in the afternoon session of the assembly.

The whole day activity will be capped with an anticipated celebration of the Holy Eucharist by His Excellency, Most Reverend JESSE E. MERCADO, DD, Chairman, CBCP Episcopal Commission on the Laity. The members of the FRC Youth of the Parish of San Roque de Sampaloc in Manila will serve as the choir for the Mass and provide inspiring music to the assembly.

Family Rosary Crusade (Philippines) Foundation Executive Director Reverend Father ROQUE D’COSTA, CSC will lead the invocation and read his opening remarks to all delegates and guests. Radio and television personality CHI-CHI ROBLES and long-time FRC volunteer, broadcast producer and social media specialist DEAN M. BERNARDO will serve as moderators for the day-long event.

Father Patrick Peyton, CSC (1909-1992) first came to the Philippines in 1951, upon the invitation of the Dominican Fathers and the late Archbishop of Manila, His Eminence RUFINO J. CARDINAL SANTOS, DD, to conduct and lead his worldwide Rosary rallies in Manila. For more than 60 years, Family Rosary Crusade, through the sponsorship and support of the Congregation of the Holy Cross (CSC)/Holy Cross Family Ministries (HCFM) continues the mission of Father Peyton even after his passing in 1992.
