AnnePre Icon Reconnects SFCs
Posted by Anne Jayme on 3/14/2012 1:12:38 AM

For some SFC members, attending the pre-conference activity is a reunion, a time to re-connect in-person after months of just communicating via social networking sites. But at this year’s pre-icon, there was another dimension to the reconnecting part. Over a hundred SFC brothers and sister geared up for this year SFC Voluntourism’s great eco–adventure in Calape, Bohol last 15-17Feb 2012. The participants were divided into four groups and were given different assignments like servant evangelism, hospital clean up, feeding program, visit the nearby ANCOP site, Mangrove planting and coastal clean-up. Muscles were stretched as the participants with some CFCs and SFCs from the area went on a mountain trekking adventure and planted trees along the way during the 2nd day of the Pre-Icon. They also visited wonderful chapels, that of St Anthony and the Our Lady of Pity. None would want to end their great experiences – sleeping in tents, singing, dancing, listening to stories, meeting new friends, helping SFCs find a household, making people smile, playing with the children, caring for Mother Earth. Being in the pre-icon is just one affirmation that truly, our God is a great God! Thus, the spirit of “volunteerism” doesn’t end in Calape as every delegate promised to bring home their experiences and learning to their respective mission areas – their chapters, their communities, their homes.
