    It was a nice experience with father pics during our congress. Thank you father for your brilliant words which really inspires our bec cells here in consolacion at the same enlightens our parishioners and LOMAS understand the real meaning of BEC. The congress would be our first step to strengthen bec in our town in such a way we are going to formulate our strategic plan to address the needs of our community through BEC. We know this is a long process but we are hopeful we can make it through God’s guidance. With this website also would be of great help in formulating our plans from the talks and articles posted.
