Iglesia Ni Cristo members from the Local Congregation of Dublin, Ireland in the Ecclesiastical District of United Kingdom, strengthened their bond as Christian brethren during the “CFO Outdoor Socializing” they held on September 25, 2022.

Going together with their families, the brethren gathered at Phoenix Park, roughly four kilometers away from their place of worship located within the Goldenbridge Industrial Estate, in Inchicore, Dublin, Ireland.

“A wholesome sight,” said Gian Francesco Ilumin, choir member and district Christian Brotherhood International (CBI) vice president, “to see everyone bonding.”

The congregation’s Christian Family Organizations (CFO) officers spearheaded this outdoor activity filled with various exciting games, such as badminton, archery practices, and volleyball matches.

Afterwards, they enjoyed the mild autumn weather while having meaningful conversations together with their loved ones and friends during a picnic.

“I like spending time with my fellow brothers and sisters in the faith,” shared Gianne Eunice Tabaniag, Binhi secretary. “As teamwork, communication, and love of brotherhood were once more strengthened, this activity proved to be a success.”

The activity not only served to bolster the bond among the brethren but also among the members of the family. “Playing some traditional Filipino children’s games gave me an insight what my parents used to play during their childhood. Because of this, it created in me a sense of connection with my parents,” said Gianne. — With reports from INC News Section
