On June 1st, Some of the Matsudo- MCCIC members joined the welcoming of Our Lady of Fatima’s 1st day at Catholic Matsudo Church.

 

On June 2nd, first Friday of the month, at around 6pm, the Matsudo – MCCIC also formed a group to see and say a rosary to Our lady of Fatima, as a prayer offering for peace in the whole world. Some friends from Ichikawa, Narashino, and Yokohama communities also joined us in praying the rosary and also attended the Holy mass. There were about 15 people who were there. It was a very solemn moment in the church.

 

On June 4th, Pentecost Sunday, there were some members from MCCIC, Ichikawa and Koiwa communities who came to attend the 10:30 am mass and also to see the Our Lady of Fatima statue. The group also offered a rosary for peace right after the mass. Moreover, in the afternoon of the same day, some MCCIC members also came to pray a rosary.

 

We are indeed so grateful to have Our Lady of Fatima visited our church. We hope they She will come again to Matsudo Church.

It was one rainy, sunny and cool day Saturday, 27th of May 2017.

We left Matsudo Station around 8:00am. It was quite a long drive so we had the opening remarks, itinerary information given to the MICHIKOTO members and guests and a prayer by Fr. Philip Bonifacio, SSC followed by saying the rosary.
Since we didn’t know everyone, we took time to introduce ourselves one by one. It’s good to know even just their names. Moreover, we enjoyed munching our Mcdonald’s burger bun with a cup of coffee or water while others started singing.

 

 

We arrived at Tobu World Square around 10:30am and started going around the area. We had fun looking and taking some photos of the miniatures of some famous buildings of the world. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything from the Philippines. I hope the will build one in the near future.

 

There were 41 adults and one girl who joined the bus tour. It was a lot of fun!
We had lunch then went to the refreshing Nijimi no Otaki falls to take a peek. Lastly, we went to the Kinugawa Onsen Iwaburo and soaked soaked our bodies into the hot spring.

 

Then left at around 6pm going back to Matsudo. Everything went well and everyone had fun!
