Cooperators Conference

Manila - glm1Manila – The  Fourth Annual Conference of Guanellian Lay Cooperators was held August 29-30th at Immaculata Retreat House with the theme, Year of the Poor: Receiving and Sharing God’s Mercy and Compassion. There were 34 participants (including Guanella Center support staff). Talks were facilitated by Fr. Leo Mateo, OFM Conventual and Fr. Charlton, SdC. Fr. Leo focused his talk on the importance of a relationship with the Lord and with one another, while Fr. Charlton discussed a general overview of Misericordiae Vultus, The Face of Mercy, Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. As Guanellian Lay Cooperators, it is of utmost importance that they become more aware of the importance of this Jubilee Year because the very nature of the group, as started by the founder, St. Louis Guanella, is born out of the mercy of God, and this mercy must be shared and extended to those “who have no one.”
