Public invited to ‘pure inspiration’ event
The 2016 Catchfire Rally CATCHFIRE FB PAGE
MANILA – Are you down and out? Or maybe needing a personal boost? This year’s Catchfire Rally, carrying the theme “Fearless”, to be held on Nov. 26, 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City is for you.
“The music, the videos, the performances, the testimonies and the preaching are all meant to inspire people to get to know this amazingly fantastic God who loves us very much,” said Bobby Quitain, the main preacher of the Catchfire Rallies and one of the leaders of the Catholic community Ligaya ng Panginoon (LNP).
He said one thing attendees will surely get from the event is inspiration. “[Catchfire has] inspiring music, life-giving testimonies, powerful preaching, uplifting performances. All rolled into one afternoon.”
A brainchild of four charismatic communities with a common history namely: Ligaya ng Panginoon, Couples for Christ (CFC), Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCBP), and FAMILIA Community, Catchfire first started in 2011 to forge a stronger bond among the organizations.
This year, however, Catchfire has the twin objectives of evangelization and edification, said Quitain.
Aside from aiming to strengthen devout Catholics, the event aims to inspire nominal Catholics or “those who have lost their faith, particularly the youth, to recover their faith and to become more vibrant in their walk with God.”
According to Quitain, Catchfire has a little bit of something for everyone. “Catchfire is unique in the sense that it has no category. Is it a worship concert? Yes, it is. Is it a prayer meeting? Yes, it is. Is it a show? Yes it is,” he explained.
There will be a healing session at 12:30 p.m. before the main event, followed by a Mass, to be celebrated by Cubao Bishop Honesto Ongtioco and Caloocan Bishop Pablo David at 2:00 p.m.
