RE:
NATIONAL LAITY WEEK (SEPTEMBER 21 TO OCTOBER 1, 2008)


Dear Monsignor/Father:


Greetings of Peace!


The Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas under the CBCP-Episcopal Commission on the Laity (ECLA) headed by His Excellency Most Rev. Gabriel V. reyes, D.D. is spearheading the National Laity Week on September 21, 2008 to October 21, 2008. This celebration is geared towards promoting lay apostolate and to honor San Lorenzo Ruiz and Blessed Pedro Calungsod, the Patron saints of the Catholic Laity in the Philippines.


The organizing committee of this year’s celebration headed by Perry B. Dimarucut has adopted the theme: “The Laity: Primary Agents of Change Towards Honesty and Integrity for Good Governance.”


Herewith is a brochure which contains some suggested activities for this celebration and a poster that brings about a synthesis of all the calls made through the years.


We hope as much as we pray that the lay may be given due recognition in their noble role in the Church.


Sincerely yours in Christ,

(signed)
REV. FR. RUFINO C.SESCON, JR.
Chancellor
