Ang Lingkod ng Panginoon Quezon City (Lingkod QC) celebrates its fifth year this June 2005. A month-long celebration is lined up to commemorate five years of God’s love and faithfulness to the brothers and sisters of Lingkod QC.

In grateful recognition and in equally grateful response to God’s faithfulness, the theme for this year’s anniversary is Faithful@5. It speaks of God’s faithfulness to the branch all these years as well as our grateful response to His faithfulness.

The Anniversary Month celebration starts with the celebration of First Friday Mass on June 3, 2005 at 7:30 in the evening the University of the Philippines Hotel (formerly known as the PCED Hostel). One of Lingkod QC’s regular priest-presiders, Fr. Steve Tynan, MGL will preside over the mass. After the mass, an exhortation will be given by Lingkod QC’s first Branch Leader (BL) Bobby Quitain.

The second week will see the QTs showcasing their talents at performing in the annual E-Night on June 10, 2005 starting at 7:30 in the evening. A short time of praise and worship will kick off the E-Night. Family, friends, officemates and other guests are welcome to attend.

On the third week, the branch’s new leaders will be installed in a simple ceremony on June 17, 2005 at 7:30 in the evening at the 8th Floor of the Philippine Heart Center. The current BL Rommel Escoto and the current Branch Women’s Moderator (BWM) Ella Del Rosario will step down in favor of Ted Te and Gay Ordenes, both of whom have responded to the call to step up in service.

Commitment Night will cap the Anniversary Month on June 24, 2005 at the UP Hotel. The new brothers and sisters who have just recently completed the Christian Life Program (CLP) and have committed their lives to the Lord will commit themselves to the Way of Life of Lingkod and particularly to Lingkod QC. Committed members will lend their support to the commitment to be made by our new brothers and sisters, pray for grace that will sustain them in this commitment and, at the same time, re-commit to the Way of Life that we have previously committed ourselves to.

There is reason to be excited, there is reason to rejoice. The Lord, who called us in 2000 to be His light in this part of Metro Manila, has remained faithful to us after five years. Let us, in turn, reflect on our own faithfulness to Him for the past five years and commit ourselves to remain faithful to Him not only for five more years but for many more years thereafter.

The Lord has been faithful@5, so with great joy, we proclaim His glory!
