2007 Annual CBAP Convention - Third Day

July 22, Sunday – After the opening prayer, the assembly broke up into small groups for two workshop papers: (1) "Divine Council, Human Fate and Natural Disasters: A Survey of Cuneiform Texts from the Ancient Near East" by Randy Flores, SVD; and (2) "An Ignatian Way of Understanding the Bible" by Dominik Markl, SJ (photos: 1, 2).

After the mid-morning snack, the not-so-new set of CBAP officers for 2007-08 were presented: Vic Nicdao as President; Arnold Monera as Vice President, Bernie Dianzon as Secretary; and Herb Schneider as Executive Director and acting Treasurer. Leander Barrot, OAR, Randy Flores, SVD, Helen Graham, MM, and Fruto Ramirez, SJ, are the other members of the board.

The convention concluded with a Eucharistic celebration presided by Pablo David (photos: 1, 2), auxiliary bishop of San Fernando, Pampanga; former Vice President and founding member of CBAP.

After a hearty lunch, the participants bade shalom to the city on the ridge overlooking lovely Taal Lake with its serene waters hiding the turmoil beneath the earth's crust.
