On November 3, 2017, Fr. Kallarasan Gandhi, SDB was invited to conduct an advent recollection at Matsudo church by MCCIC. It was a a sunny and beautiful day.

The recollection proper started around 10:40 am. Fr. Gandhi talked about love, peace and joy. There were about 23 participants who came from different churches like Narashino, Toyoshiki, Koiwa, Ichikawa and mostly from Matsudo.

The talks were divided into three; Love, Joy and Peace. The participants were also given time for sharing to give them time to reflect on the topic based on their daily life on questions like “ How do we experience Jesus in our life?/ How do I radiate or give Jesus to others?” to mention a few.

He also gave emphasis on the importance of confession and forgiveness and that forgiveness is a must everyday.

 

 

Lunch time!!

 

 

 

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and adoration was officiated by their very own Parish Priest, Fr. Philip Bonifacio, SSC while Fr. Gandhi was hearing some confessions.

 

The recollection was finally concluded with a Holy mass at 4pm. 

 

 

The participants went home feeling fresh with love, joy and peace in their hearts.Bracelet rosaries were also given to the participants as a token and appreciation for joining the said recollection.

The Catholic Matsudo Church holds its annual ”St. Michael Festival and Bazar”
The MCCIC joined the bazar and enjoyed selling Filipino foods. They sold turon – a kind of sweet snacks . It is delicacy made of plantain banana with sugar rolled in lumpia wrapper and fried. Another was pork barbecue marinated in sweet pineapple catsup sauce; They also sold arroz caldo – a rice porridge with chicken bits topped with spring onions and fried garlic. In addition to these foods, they also sold “ pritong lumpia” – cooked with ground beef, spices and various vegetables rolled in spring rolls wrapper and fried. This is best eaten with sour spicy kind of sauce.
It was rainy that day and we had typhoon. There were not so many people who came so, there were much of Lumpia ingredients left and some porridge left which some members happily took and brought home.
However, the turon and barbecue were sold out easily.
We thank the members who extended help for this event and especially the people who bought and enjoyed eating our food.
