From April 28 to 30, 2013 the Diocese of Romblon held the first Diocesan BEC Fellowship. Over 150 BEC formators and facilitators coming 15 parishes gathered at the diocesan pastoral center – the Magnificat Center – to share their experiences and to draw up plans for carrying out the task of New Evangelization. The CBCP-BEC Committee was represented by Fr. Amado L. Picardal who gave a talk on “Recent development of BECs in the Philippines and the Call for New Evangelization in BECs.” The event was organized by Fr. Mel Rey Uy, the diocesan BEC director.
