FRC Visits St. Francis de Assisi Unit
We recently visited a new FRC Unit at the St. Francis de Assisi Parish, Cambridge, Cainta, Rizal.
The parish is one of the latest additions to the growing number of FRC Units in the Philippines. It was organized in 2011, the same year when the parish was formally established under the Diocese of Antipolo.
In his talk, Fr. Roque discussed the life of FRC founder, Fr. Patrick Peyton and his legacy of promoting family prayer.
About 70 active officers and block coordinators attended the meeting, where they reported the various activities in the parish. They also brought out some of the issues they encountered in transferring the image of the Blessed Mother to the different households in their barangay.
Notably, a young boy, who serves as a block leader of the Unit, also gave a report.
The Unit was also informed of the 8th FRC General Assembly on June 22, which will be held from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pius Catholic Center Auditorium.
The meeting also provided the opportunity to remind the members of the new timeslots of FRC's regular TV programs on Studio 23 (Sundays, 6 to 7 a.m.) and TV5 (Saturdays, 4:30 to 5:30 a.m.).
Fr. James Padilla, the parish priest is very supportive of the Unit in his parish.

Mother Mary Visits Families
Closely knit families is a Filipino characteristic and praying the Rosary as a group is one way the family is strengthened. Just like the beads of the rosary, family prayer brings them closer to Jesus through Mary and makes true the statement, The Family That Prays Together Stays Together.
