Featured Event Of The Week: Couples For Christ Australia’s (CFCA) 27TH Anniversary


The Couples For Christ Australia (CFCA) recently held its 27th Anniversary celebration last month (August) at St. Andrews Parish in Marayong and it was a sight to behold!

The CFCA anniversary celebration organizing committee was spearheaded by Cluster Head Edwin Aguirre who meticulously planned what’s going to happen on the day. The program started with a Mass celebration officiated by Fr Ruben Elago, joined and participated by a huge number of attendance from the whole CFCA and its Family Ministries including the KFCA, YFCA, SFCA, HOLD AND SOLD plus invited guests who witnessed the spirit and fun-filled event. The CFCA choir with Mely Adan as the Choir Master provided the music during the mass celebration where the congregation was inspired and really appreciated the beautiful harmony as they listened to the harmonious voices of the choir members.


After the Mass, some light refreshments were served by the Service Team from the Bondal Chapter-Ronnie and Minnie (Glenn and Tess Macaraig Unit, Beato Pudadera Unit, Asuncion Unit ,Mauro Yumol with their respective household members) supported by the Ilagan Unit of the Vitt/Donna Lim Chapter-they made certain that the food was provided to everyone and that everything was in order.

The lights and sounds were supervised by Ely and Thelma Reyes’ Unit and Ruffy and Nimfa Tagudar Unit together with Nick and Connie Soon were in-charge of the program. Abet Selorio and Josie Castillo were the prolific emcees who entertained the audience with their wit and humor and Joy Tengco, with the support of Cindy helped decorate the venue as well as create the powerPoint presentations on the day.


The praise and worship was led by Nonie Cabrera. The Holy Spirit truly manifested his presence and was felt by everyone as they sang, danced and clapped their hands to the tune of the vibrant and lively praise and worship songs with Nonie in the forefront supported by the selected CFCA choir members and with the participation of the whole congregation. They basically raised the roof as they shouted their praises worshipping our Lord Jesus Christ.

The highlight of the event was the CFCA Got Talent portion where the selected members from various Ministries who auditioned for the exciting event showcased their talents from singing, to dancing, to playing the keyboard, violin and guitar and to comedy skits – they all proudly displayed their skills much to everyone’s enjoyment.


Another exhilarating part of the program was the Photography Contest and once again the CFCA members who participated in this competition exhibited their artistic talents in photography.

Some of the guest judges who judged the CFCA Got Talent competition were Ronnie Masocol (CFCA, LAC Director) and beatbox master Genesis who also showcased his beatboxing prowess on the day leaving the audience in awe of his amazing talent.

The celebration culminated with the announcement of the raffle draw winners and a closing prayer led by Rey Legaspi.

Congratulations again to all the CFCA members for showing your commitment and dedication towards supporting this momentous event which was crucial and even contributed to the success of the 27th Anniversary celebration of the Couples For Christ Australia. We admire the fact that they are reaching out to others and proclaiming the good news of the Lord.
