I am raising money to help me with my expenses for the pilgrimage and anniversary of our church organization - Neo Catechumenal Way in Rome. As a quick history, the Neocatechumenal Way, also known as the Neocatechumenate, NCW or, colloquially, The Way, is a charism within the Catholic Church dedicated to Christian formation. It was formed in Madrid in 1964 by Kiko Argüello and the late Carmen Hernández.
Taking its inspiration from the catechumenate of the early Catholic Church by which converts from paganism were prepared for baptism, it provides post-baptismal formation to adults who are already members of the Church or to those far from the Church who have been attracted by the testimony of Christian life of love and unity in the communities (cf. Jn 13:35; 17:21), as proposed in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).Due to numerous vocations coming from the families formed in the communities, it has also helped to establish and run over 100 missionary diocesan seminaries in various locations. They are called "Redemptoris Mater" seminaries. It is responsible for communities of "families in mission", called "Missio ad gentes", living in many cities around the world. Together with a priest and his socius, and some celibate women, they make present the Church in places of little or no Catholic presence.
The Neocatechumenate, as an itinerary of Christian initiation, is implemented in small, parish-based communities of up to 50 people. In 2007 there were around 40,000 such communities throughout the World, with an estimated million Catholics following the itinerary.
With that being said we have representatives from the Philippines who would be joining this said anniversary which marks another milestone for our community in Rome. This is a very rare opportunity.
We would be leaving the Philippines on April 30, 2018 and come back on May 8, 2018. With your help this would enable me to finance my food and necessities while in Rome. The round-trip ticket has been taken cared of already. I am humbly knocking to your hearts for this.
