Officers of the Society of Communicators and Networkers International (SCAN), Christian Medical Dental and Paramedical Society (CMDPS), and Light of Salvation (LOS) from the Ecclesiastical District of Italy South received spiritual upliftment during special gatherings that were held on two consecutive days.
On February 20, 2023, the holy gathering held at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Roma Centro was aimed at commemorating SCAN’s 34th anniversary and CMDPS’s fourth anniversary.
Officers from the six local congregations in Rome (Roma Centro, Roma Est, Roma Nord, Roma Ovest, Roma Sud, and Rome) convened at the said house of worship while those from other local congregations and group worship services (GWS) of the district gathered at their respective places of worship to also attend the event via livestreaming.
Brother Michael Pineda, district Christian Family Organizations (CFO) overseer officiated at the special gathering. He reminded the attendees that, as they fulfill their Church duties, they should take inspiration from God’s abiding help to their respective organizations and the whole Church.
“God’s love is felt through the Church Administration and this gathering is one proof,” Brother Pineda said.
“My faith has been strengthened once more. On my part, I will continue supporting the health programs being launched in our district,” said Liezel Vilale, district CMDPS vice president.

With God’s abiding help, I will be one with the Church Administration who does not fail in inspiring us to uphold God’s will,” said Carmelita Terrones from the Local Congregation of Rome. — With reports from INC News Section
