BCBP Canada Winnipeg Mission celebrates second anniversary
The Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCBP) Winnipeg Mission, a not-for-profit Catholic lay organization, celebrated its 2nd year anniversary last July 24, 2021. The Holy Eucharist was celebrated at St. Emile Parish Church by Fr. Gerry Sembrano. A family day followed at Assiniboine Park.
BCBP had its roots in Philippines where 24 businessmen from Ligaya ng Panginoon Covenant & Community introduced a Christian Businessmen Breakfast in July 1980 with the objective of bringing Christ in the marketplace and in the society as well. The Breakfast flourished drawing a large number of businessmen and professionals. This led to BCBP with members not only in the Philippines but also in other countries in Southeast Asia and North America. Here in Canada, the BCBP operates in Greater Toronto East and West, Hamilton, Durham, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. And two years ago, the Winnipeg Mission was established.
Breakfast meetings are held simultaneously every Saturday. Even with the pandemic, BCBP still hold its breakfast and other activities virtually. This year, on August 20 – 21, BCBP marks its 41st National Anniversary Celebration.
