Almost 40 policemen from Makati, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Taguig, and Pateros station joined the three-day event held at the Mary Mother of Hope Chapel in Landmark, Makati City.

According to Rev. Fr. Jason Laguerta, Director of OPNE, the conference aimed at helping young men of today to value themselves and to discover the important roles they will play in the society as well as in their families and the Christian life.

“Gusto nating mabigyan ng ayundin naman ang kanilang magiging papel sa kanilang mga ppansin yung kahalagahan ng mga kabataang lalaki para turuan sila sa pag-unawa ng kanilang pagiging lalaki at gamilya bilang tatay sa kanilang magiging pamilya [sa hinaharap] o kaya naman bilang kuya sa pamilya. So gusto nating malaman o maunawaan kung paano ba talaga ang pag-unawa natin sa isang kristiyanong lalaki o mga kristiyanong kalalakihan.” Fr. Laguerta said in an interview by Radio Veritas.

Fr. Laguerta also stressed that aside from the above-mentioned roles, the conference also focused on what would be their chosen vocation in life.

The conference whose theme was “Believing, Living, Thriving” Accompanying Young Men in Virtue” was attended by at least 300 participants from the Archdiocese of Manila and its suffragan and in other places in the country. (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
