“This year some of the office staff, maintenance people, and students, who had been patiently waiting for me to initiate them, finally got their wish granted. It’s a very enthusiastic group – always looking forward to their weekly meetings. They sing 3 days a week at the 6 P.M. Masses, and get invited to sing at funeral Masses. There is a strong spirit of community among them. They have even organized a cooperative among the employees.” (Fr. Ben Sim)

The Magis CLC-Singapore
From Bebs Sim: The Magis CLC-Singapore describes itself in their egroup this way: “This is a group for the members of the first Christian Life Community (CLC) being organized in Singapore. Currently, it has no official standing with the World Christian Life Community, but it is led by the spirit of the General Principles and Norms of the CLC. “
The group is composed of 12 members and is being guided by Fr. Paul Goh, S.J. The initiator is Arsenio (Boboy) Alianan Jr., formerly of Ichthys CLC of the Mary the Queen Cluster of CLC Philippines. Boboy was once a resource person of the CLC Formation Institute’s Program, Call to Shepherd. Together with his wife, Vivian, he now coordinates the group in its activities. The CLCP is now its Journey Companion as it moves and grows toward membership in the World CLC.
