We held the annual New Evangelization Conference and Catholic Expo last May 19 at the Cuneta Astrodome. I think in terms of preparation and content, this was probably one of the best we have had so far!
We were able to launch the Clarion Call Music competitions and The Catholic New Evangelization Awards (links below). We had the raffle from the Signs and Wonders Shoppe. We had Fr. Shenan Bouqet from Human Life International and dad as the speakers.
We had Bishop Francis de Leon of Antipolo celebrate Mass, and we were able to touch base with him through Twitter! What an awesome Bishop.
And the NEC shirt spoke of the Greatest Story Ever Told. I personally think it was a wonderful message of Greatness. We could have had better air-conditioning (why was it so hot anyway), and less issues with parking and accessibility of the venue – but we learn from those things. And use them to challenge us to be even better for 2019.
Thank you for your support this year. We are already pre-planning the NEC 2019. For the year of the Youth, we hope it will be something Enchanted.
