MCCIC goes to Mt. Fuji on a bus tour. Few years back, the MCCIC had already started organising one day bus tours.
In 2011, the group went to Mt. Nikko, in 2012, the group went to Hakone, in 2014, the group went for a pilgrimage in Akita.

We believe that through these bus tours, we get to know each other more, it’s a good time to unwind and be free from the usual activities that we do everyday, we may become more united that can lead to a more stronger bond not only for Matsudo parishioners but also other parishioners coming from Toyoshiki, Ichikawa and Koiwa.

This year and onwards, we plan to have a bus tour at least once or twice in a year.
There were 51 people ( adult and children) who joined the said Mt. Fuji bus tour.

The activities planned for that day includes a visit to Mama Mary’s Grotto at the 2nd station and have a Eucharistic celebration to be celebrated by our very own Fr. Philip Bonifacaio, SSC however, due to the heavy foggy weather on that day, going to the 2nd station was impossible and so, it was cancelled.

 

They visited the Kawaguchiko lake, the Music Forest and had a good lunch at one of the restaurants near Kawaguchiko lake.

The group had a great fun and most of them are now asking when would be the next bus tour. It was a successful one and we thank all those who have contributed for the success of this tour. We hope that there will be more people joining our bus tours next time.
