    Ordinariate of the Philippines

        the MOP's 25th Anniversary as Ordinariate
       Its formal preparation started last July 2010
        retreat of the Catholic Chaplains (130
        participants)
       At present, some 5000 questionnaires are
        administered at random by the Chaplains in all
        60 camps
        Our Attempt to Answer the
             Above Questions
   By July 2011, the Synod Paper will be
    studied, discussed, and argued upon by
    the Synod Assembly composed of
    representatives coming from the men and
    women in uniform (AFP, PNP, PCG, BJMP,
    BFP), from their families, from the civilian
    employees and all Chaplains
                    MOP's Desire

We wish to share this journey, this experience
 of lights and shadows:
     Our attempt to make the lights seen by the Christian
      soldier brighter and the shadows discouraging them
      paler
     Our attempt to make the Christian soldier feel he is a
      living part of the Church and with him we are the
      Church
     Our attempt to bring the Christian soldier closer to
      Christ who can be His model of commitment as he
      serves and protects the people, and keep peace.
Thank You
