​International Conference on the Centrality of Jesus Christ

Parents for Education Foundation (Philippines) in partnership with Smart Catholics (New York) and Parousia Media (Australia) will host an international conference on December 5 to 8, 2020, titled: Jesus-Centered Life: An International Family Conference.

As inspiration, the organizers point to the popes of the new millennium. The “centrality of Jesus Christ” is a recurring theme in the popes’ messages.

St. John Paul II asked the Catholic Church to “start afresh from Christ.” The program for all ages “has at its center Christ himself, who is to be known, loved and imitated,” he said. Pope Benedict XVI wrote three books about Jesus of Nazareth and taught that “everything depends on intimate friendship with Jesus.”

An Advent Message from National President Anne-Marie Gorman

As Advent begins, let us quietly and cautiously wait for the unique coming of Emmanuel, God with us, the greatest gift to the world. He is coming. May whatever darkness there is in our individual and collective world give way to the excitement and ecstasy that only the arrival of the Christ child can bring.

 Anne-Marie Gorman, National President

Photo Friday: Our top 5 “animal” photos!

Welcome to Photo Friday! Each Friday, we share photo collections of our favourite shots from our sponsor sites around the world.

Animals are gifts that are universally loved and requested by every one of our sponsor sites around the world. Raising animals like chickens, cows, and goats helps families supplement their income so that they can afford to send their children to school and purchase other essentials. Some families and communities even start entire businesses with the help of the animals they receive through our gift catalogue! 

This week, we’re sharing our top 5 animal photos from our sponsor sites! These adorable animals have provided families with eggs, milk, wool, and best of all, financial security for the future.
