The Catholic Church will celebrate the Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC) Sunday for the first time, giving more importance to its vision for “a new way of being Church”.

Archdioceses and dioceses across the country are expected to come up with activities on June 16, which also falls on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity.

In preparation for the celebration, some dioceses have already held seminar workshops to prepare the parish leaders including the youth.

The bishops during its plenary assembly in July 2018 approved that the Trinity Sunday every year will be celebrated as BEC Sunday throughout the Philippines.

Msgr. Manuel Gabriel, Executive Secretary of the CBCP Committee on BEC, earlier encouraged dioceses to organize activities such as symposium on the Holy Trinity and the BEC.

He said parishes may also hold reorientation and renewal of commitments among BEC leaders, ministers and members.

The CBCP official also called on priests to highlight BEC in their homilies “as our communion in BECs is patterned after the communion of the Most Holy Trinity”.
