MANILA, May 23, 2014—Campus ministers from Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP)-member schools will meet in Cebu City to review and approve a proposed manual for Christian Formation for Catholic Educational institutions.
The draft Manual for Christian Formation will be presented at the 3rd CEAP National Campus Ministry Conference on July 29 to 31 at the Betania Retreat House, Nivel Hills, Lahug, Cebu City.
According to Msgr. Gerardo O. Santos, chairman of the CEAP National Christian Formation Commission, the conference aims “to familiarize the participants and seek their approval of the Manual.”
Themed “Campus Ministers: Celebrating our Calls to be Heroes and Saints,” the assembly also aims to “form support group that will tackle the needs of the Campus Ministers in CEAP schools and to build communion among Catholic Campus Ministry practitioners.”
“There will be plenary sessions on the identified concerns of the Campus Ministers in Catholic Schools in relation to the theme, which shall be discussed by resource persons who are engaged in various ministries in the Church. A discussion of the role of the laity in Catholic schools will also highlight this year’s celebration,” Santos said in an invitation sent to the Campus Ministers.
One of the speakers in the three-day event is Archbishop Jose Palma of Cebu.
