WHY ATTEND THE AFCCPC NATIONAL CONVENTION?

 

The Alliance of Filipino Catholic Charismatic Prayer Communities (AFCCPC) is an umbrella and networking organization of Catholic Prayer Groups or Communities with Filipino membership, in the USA and Canada. AFCCPC participates with the National Service Committee of the Charismatic Renewal of the United States and share in its mission of stirring into flame the grace of Pentecost and strengthening the Catholic Charismatic Renewal with particular focus and emphasis on the needs of Filipinos. AFCCPC sponsors National Conventions and broadens its reach to include all Catholic Prayer Communities in the Dioceses where National Conventions are held.


When you attend this annual 19th National Convention:

 

  • You can reflect and share with other participants on the theme “Be merciful just as my Father is merciful.” (Lk.6:36) Pope Francis spoke of Mercy as the “Name of God,” which is something that we can all use—as leaders, as disciples, as faithful Catholics in today’s society.

 

  • You will be part of a collective force for Evangelization, Growth in Life in the Spirit, Fellowship, Mutual Support, and Sharing of Christian Witness and Resources.

 

  • You can help foster lives lived under the Grace of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, encouraging the use of Spiritual Gifts to build each other and the Church, receiving the same empowerment experienced by the early Christians to spread the Good News of Jesus.

     

  • You can help foster the realization of the Fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.

CONFERENCE PRAYER:

Almighty and loving Father, Source of every grace and blessing, We give you thanks for this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy that began with Your inspiration and continue with Your Saving help. Seeking to be good stewards of the many blessings You have given us.

In this Year of Mercy, we place before Your throne our collective intentions and efforts to gather on October 28 to 30, 2016 for the 19th AFCCPC National Convention of Charismatic Prayer Communities and to partake in preparing for the culmination of this Year of Mercy.

O Lord, be present among the various Convention Service Teams.  Pour out Your Holy Spirit and give them Your strength and perseverance in this challenging endeavor. Help us to remember that we are doing Your will in our work, not our own; that this work and related Convention activities find their origin in Your Mercy and through You reach completion. Keep us united in purpose, and lead us to successful productive results. May we see this coming Convention time as a way of serving You and benefiting the life of our Prayer Communities.

Gracious God, preserve among us those who will travel and participate in this Convention, surround them with Your loving care, and protect them from every danger. Pour Your holy anointing on those who will be privileged to speak, inspire those who will listen, and help us to always fix our eyes on You.

We thank You Lord, for this coming AFCCPC National Convention that, by Your grace, will seek to widen our knowledge of You and will equip us more fully for the task of life and living. May You be glorified, honored, and praised in all that we do and are through Christ our Lord. Amen.
