New Hope Fellowship continues to grow

  • Print

A Catholic charismatic group that holds prayer meetings every Sunday from 2:30 to 5 p.m. is gearing up to celebrate its second anniversary.

New Hope Fellowship and Mission Ministry’s praise and worship services are held at Blessed Virgin Mary Parish Hall at 932 College Ave.

The group was founded with 30 members and continues to grow.

Although the congregation’s official anniversary is not until July 2013, council members, led by congregation co-ordinator Emma Abejuela, are already planning activities to celebrate the occasion.

Since its inception in July 2011, the group has been involved in many works of charity, including making cash relief donations for calamity victims in the Philippines through ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya Foundation, clothing donations to Big Brothers through Value Village stores, cash donations to Siloam Mission, volunteer work at Hope International Canada, visitations and prayer for the sick, offering prayers at funeral services, and putting together Christmas hampers for poor families

The group already boasts a youth choir which participates in its prayer and worship services.
Participants with kids need not worry, as kids are taken care of by Noreen Camungol Yuen, a volunteer who offers mentorship while the prayer meetings are going on.

Members of the New Hope Fellowship council include  Emma Abejuela, co-ordinator; Lita Mas, assistant  co-ordinator; Beth Ambrosio, secretary; Pol Gamo, treasurer;   Johnny Camungol, Donell Custodio, and resource speakers Rodel Ambrosio and Mel Maralit. They meet on the last Sunday of each month.

A monthly eucharistic mass is held on the last Sunday of each month with Father Vic Tungolh (ret.), the congregation’s Spiritual Director.
