In a meeting with Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Paul de Leon, he firmly decided against the holding of the Christian Life Program at the Our Lady of
Mt. Carmel Chapel located along the corner of Pink and Aqua St., Camella North Springville, Molino, Bacoor, Cavite.
Fr. Paul stated that he has nothing against the Christian Life Program and
the various activities of CFC-Singles For Christ. His decision is merely to emphasize strict adherence to his policy
of holding formation programs within the church walls.
Other factors may also be at play regarding his decision. This includes the SFC letter
dated February 27, 2002 which says that the community (SFC) has recently had a "significant harvest" according to its statistics.
The Parish Priest replied that he has not yet seen that harvest as far as important religious activities in the parish are
However, he also says that he sees potential in this community in bringing people closer to God.
One of the reasons why the SFC Queens' Row-Camella Unit Service Team wants to conduct the Christian
Life Program outside the Parish is mainly due to the scheduling conflict that may arise as the Couples For Christ has an ongoing
CLP at the said venue every Sunday afternoon - the same time slot SFC has alloted.
The Service Team has yet to report to Chapter Head Rolo B. Cena regarding Fr. Paul's decision.
