Dear ICD Fellows:
May I ask that you help us respond positively to this request of Cardinal Tagle with regard to Collegio Filippino?
His Eminence spoke to the Fellows of ICD and key representatives of the business community at one of our breakfast forums. I trust you remember it was probably one of the most well attended BRT of ICD. It was also very mind-opening (hopefully, also opening our heart and conscience as well).
At that BRT, in an informal conversation, the Cardinal did ask for help and support in refurbishing the Collegio Filippino in Rome. This was built in the mid-1960s and is now in a state of disrepair. It is an important facility for the training of highly select Filipino priests, several of whom end up as future Bishops of the Philippines.
I hope you can join Cardinal Tagle on July 7, 2014 (7 p.m.) at the Auditorium of the Makati Medical Center. He will be only too happy to receive expression of support from the business community---and in particular, from the Fellows of ICD---for this important project for the Church in the Philippines. RSVP: email@example.com. You may also contact Julie Parreno (884-1494; 884-1498).
Very Truly Yours,
Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, FICD
