Kristong Hari To Host 1st Parish Good Governance Forum


The Kristong Hari Parish Shrine of the Youth will be conducting its 1st Parish Good Governance Forum entitled “One Good Vote” on April 9, Saturday, from 7:00am to 12:00nn.

With the 2016 National Elections fast approaching, the stories of massive graft and corruption, election-related killings and oppression, the substandard social services provided to Filipinos, and other social issues have led to a lot of broken hearts and broken hopes. In this Year of Three-fold blessings, the Church is propelled to respond to a saintly and heroic mission to evangelize the political culture.

One Good Vote, then, aims to make a stand as one community to take part in the collective discernment and uphold Clean, Honest, Accountable, Meaningful and Peaceful (CHAMP) Elections. Expected to attend the event are the Parish Pastoral Council leaders, Basic Ecclesial Community members, and all Good Governance advocates from various ministries and organizations in the parish and barangay who have decided to come together as Filipinos to exercise our One Good Vote for the future of the Country.

The event also intends to achieve: (1) the Public Affairs Ministry-led Conscientization program, an education and formation series for all lay leaders and volunteers of the parish, (2) encourage all lay leaders to become Good Governance Advocates and enlist volunteers to become active members of the Public Affairs Ministry, (3) gain a deeper appreciation on the role of the Filipino laity in Good Governance work, and (4) encourage and empowered voters to exercise their One Good Vote.

For the Program Proper, registration commences at 7:00 A.M. and followed by:
