It was a momentous event celebrated by all the members of CHAMP called from different places in the Philippines like Tagum City, Davao del Norte, Bacolod City, San Fernando, Pampanga, Quezon City, Manila and Barangay Sampaloc, Tanay, Rizal. Our members from youth to the aged came to celebrate with prayers of thanksgiving, prayers of silence, with songs and dance, planning and direction. Our sisters and members all CHAMPions called and chosen by our Lady to pray and to serve as we all follow Jesus the friend of the poor and the healer of the broken.
The 3rd National Convention for CHAMP was held in Regina RICA October 7-11, 2016
Imagine a house becoming a contemplative center in 5 days time. And it was done.
The Tagum contemplative group has been homeless for 16 years. They have existed as a group practicing contemplative prayer in many places….in the Sinagoga, in the Rural Bank of Montevista, in the BIR place. And finally one day Nitz Nazareno comes to Sr. Eppie I would like to donate a lot of 250 sq.m. so that Tagum ROCA will find a home. Sr. Eppie then came to look at the place and met with the other owners. I feel this Mama Mary guiding Sr. Eppie because in August 26 we learned that the RDO will be moved!!! just in time. I believe this is Divine intervention.
In August 30 Bishop George Rimando DD blest the new place, the home of Casa ROCA in Tagum City.
Finally the Regina Rosarii Contemplative Association of Tagum has a home they can call their very own.

My Dear Capitular Sisters, Members of the Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii, CHAMP Delegates,
You have in your hands now, the work of many nights and days of all the members of the Second General Chapter. We have gathered like the apostles who waited for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We have prayed daily for enlightenment in our deliberations and decisions for the good of the Congregation. Indeed, we have paid attention to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.
We pray that you bring to your heart all that we have projected and planned for the future. On our part, we the leadership team and the members of the capitulars will do our best to bring these Acts of the Second General Chapter to realization.
Guided by our father, St. Dominic who have instituted the democratic form of government, we too, follow his example of participation in management.
Our Lady, Regina Rosarii, is very much a part of our deliberations. We look at her standing on top the hill, visited by pilgrims, surrounded by greeneries, always lovingly keeping an eye on us who chart the course of her beloved Congregation.
Thank you Mama Mary for your constant inspiration to make you known and loved all over the world, through our Congregation and through Regina RICA.
We thank Fr James Ferry for coming to RICA twice during this Chapter. He celebrated mass of the Holy Spirit last August 1, and witnessed in behalf of the Bishop of Antipolo, the election process. He likewise celebrated the mass in honor of St Dominic.
We thank Msgr Peter Canonero Diocesan Chancellor for receiving my profession of faith in behalf of the Bishop.
Thanks too to our resource persons: Fr Quirico Pedregoza, OP., Fr Nemesio Huesca CICM., Fr. Rey Tejico, MJ, and Rey Barnido.
We are indebted to Fr Arthur Dingel, OP for his Management expertise. He came all the way from Indonesia to sit with us from August 9 to August 22, 2016.
Fr Art brought his expert friends who met us to discuss re finance, internet, taxation and Human Resource.
Bishop Francis de Leon our incoming new Bishop of Antipolo also visited last Monday August 15, feast of the Assumption.
We thank Rey Barnido who facilitated the Forum for CHAMP our Lay mission partners. He likewise helped in creating the organigram of the Foundation, Leadership team, and service flow of our organization. A great man of service and a person of joyful spirit, Rey has helped us in many countless ways.
We thank Dina Amante and Ellen Chua for the secretarial work. Dina designed the logo and did all the creative work, staying late into the night and day, helping us to finish our report.
With deep appreciation, we acknowledge the work of CHAMP especially the ROCA members who did the teachers talk when we were in session.
Finally, thank you to all our Formands and house staff who did all the work we had to do in our absence.
Through all the General Chapter days, we felt the working of the Spirit. We palpably felt the presence of our Lady during our deliberations and defense of our proposals.
By virtue of the office vested on me, I therefore promulgate this Acts of the Second General Chapter. Let this Acts of the Second General Chapter be read every 8th day of the month so we will always remember to do the things we have to do and become fitting contemplative witnesses in the world today.
