Manila – The 5th Annual Guanellian Lay Cooperators’ Conference was held August 20-21st at the cool and mountainous Mariapolis Center overlooking Taal Lake in Tagaytay City, Philippines. Twenty-four Guanellian Cooperators attended the event. The theme was “Jubilee of Mercy: Becoming Merciful like the Father.” The main presentation was given by Fr. Alvin of the Focolare Movement for Priests and another topic was facilitated by Fr. Charlton on Becoming Merciful in our Relationships. They also went on a “little pilgrimage” to three beautiful chapels of sisters in Tagaytay: Pink Sisters or the Holy Spirit Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Franciscan Missionaries of Mary and the Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing. Everybody enjoyed and shared that the meeting was fruitful and inspirational in assisting them to follow the Lord in the footsteps of our founder, St. Louis Guanella.
