On July 28, 2012, Diocesan BEC coordinators of the National Capital Region and the Malolos diocese met at the rectory of the Pasig Cathedral from 9 to 11:30 am. The dioceses of the NCR region represented were Manila, Cubao, Novaliches, Paranaque, and Kalookan. Fr. Picardal of the CBCP-BEC Committee was also present. After going over the recommendation and plans set during the National Gathering of Diocesan BEC directors held on October 2011, the coordinators decided to hold a NCR regional BEC forum this coming September 29, 2012. This forum dubbed as “BECs in the City” will focus on sharing of experiences regarding the formation of BECs in urban areas – especially in Metro-Manila and Malolos. This forum will be held in Pasig and will be hosted by the diocese of Pasig.
