Our very own Maribel Descallar was elected to the Board of Trustees of the Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas (Laiko). This was during the double-event of the Laiko last weekend. There was the 2nd National Laity Congress at Pius XII Catholic Center in Paco, Manila; and the Laiko 17th Biennial National Convention also at Pius XII.
The Congress had the theme of “Laiko at 60, Standing Firm in the Faith, Sharing the Richness of Mother Church for Social Transformation” while the Convention built on that theme through “Standing in the Faith, Sharing the Richness of Mother Church for Social Transformation”.
Maribel is definitely fit for such a call as she is our International Coordinator for Pro-Life, our Church Relations director, a member of the Body of Counselors and more importantly a wife and a mother of 6.
Her term as a member of the Laiko Board of Trustees will be for 2 years.
Laiko is the Secretariat of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines- Episcopal Commission on the Laity. Their mission: “To restore all things in Christ”.
