WME PHILIPPINES WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE 4TH WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES. COME AND VISIT THE WORLDWIDE MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER BOOTH AT PICC.
For the Fourth World Meeting of Families in 2003, the Pope has decided to hold it in Asia, here in our very own shores from 23 to 26 January. Manila is humbled and honored to host this auspicious event. We accept thisgift and responsibility with greater fervor and conviction since the HolyFather has called the Third Millennium, the "Asian Millennium" - themillenium for the proclamation of the name and Gospel of Jesus in Asia.We are called "to share with our Asian brothers and sisters what wetreasure as the gift containing all gifts, namely, the Good News ofJesus Christ." (Ecclesia in Asia 19). Asia is home to nearly four of the six billion people of the world. Of these four billion, only 120 million are Catholics, 70% of which are Filipinos. It is therefore to every Filipino Catholic, to every Filipino Catholic family, that the mission to evangelize Asia is entrusted more forcefully. The time has comefor us to lead in proclaiming and living out the Gospel of Jesus to theworld. And this mission will pass by way of the family. It is for this reason that the theme for this important gathering is "The Christian Family: Good News for the Third Millennium."

Lingayen Dares to Dream
Holds Silver Anniversary Weekend
Atthe Silver Anniversary celebration in Cebu city, amid the pulsating heart
 representingthe WME zones and satellites throughout the Philippines, the one depictingLingayen remained steady, without any beat at all, almost lifeless.

Therepresentatives of  Lingayen, Nacy & Minda, Mnny and Rose and Fr. John saw their motionless heart. Their own hearts missed a beat, perhaps conscious that everyone was asking the same questions they had in theirminds what happened to Lingayen?. clickhere to continue

NEWS FROM THE NET
Greetingsof peace and love!

Itwas exactly one month ago since our last board meeting in Mindoro.
Howis the progress of your thrust to go parish based? Have you been
workingwith your bishops and parish priests in your community to offer
ourgifts? Remember our theme… Starting Afresh from Christ? What
mustwe do?

Itis indeed difficult to start specially when it is new and different
fromwhat we do before?  Christ has shared this to us in Matthew
14:29.
Whenwe were new with WME, it was difficult to dialogue.
Whenwe were babies, it was difficult to walk and much more, run. Likewise, what
weare trying to do is not easy. But we can not stay where we
are.Thereis the need to “Put Out Into the Deep”

Howabout the concern of priests in our community? How far have you
developedrelationship with your priests? Remember - each zone or
satellitesto have 3 team priests this year? How have you progressed on
this?

Meeting with Bishop Mercado

Theother night, we had a dinner-meeting with Bishop Mercado of the
Parishof Presentation of Baby Jesus which may soon become the Diocese of
PPLM(Pasay, Paranaque, Las Pinas and Muntinglupa) composed of 59
parishes(120 priests). They are very enthusiastic to make the
“weekendand program” of the WME as an entry point of the couples’
involvementto their parish. They seem to prefer our program.
