The Birth of an Idea
Since last year, we the Filipinos working in Lahore, have gathered every two months. Fr. Pat Raleigh, a Columban, initiated this apostolate. In his going about, he used to meet Filipinos every now and then. So, he got the idea of gathering, asking where they live etc. Fr. Pat is a great friend of our community, he spoke to me and to one FMM, a Filipino too and one missionary of Charity (Mother Teresa) a Filipino, plus three Pinoys Columban lay missionary. He said, we must meet one day, and see if we can organize and gather these people for a Sunday mass and offer the chance of meeting each other.
