The Prayer and Life Workshops (PLW) are a new form of EVANGELIZATION in the service of the Catholic Church. This service of Prayer and Life Workshops, recognized and approved by the Holy See in 1997 and subsequently confirmed per Decree of Approval by the Pontifical Council of the Laity in October, 2002, was founded by Fr. Ignacio Larrañaga, a Franciscan Capuchin from Spain in 1984.
The primary objective of the Prayer and Life Workshops, is to teach the participants how to pray in an orderly, progressive and experimental manner and to incorporate it into their everyday living.
The Workshops consists of 15 weekly 2-hour Sessions facilitated by a Prayer Guide. Some of the those that has completed the Workshops, after further undergoing and completing a 55 week School of Formation are commissioned as Prayer Guides.
Currently, the Workshops in the Philippines has been confined to Luzon with the bulk of the Workshops being conducted in the National Capital Region. The PLW is basically missionary in character and we have newly commissioned 20 new Prayer Guides in Bagiuo, La Union and Isabela to facilitate in their respective areas
Last year, our founder, Fr. Ignacio, has expressed his desire for the Philippines to bring the Workshops to the rest of the country and to our Asian neighbors. 96Thus, last March, 2013, we brought the Workshops to the province of Cebu. There are innumerable details, both large and small expenses for the promotion and expansion of the PLW, in correspondences, meetings and trips.The service of the Workshops are free; there is no registration. Expansion of this magnitude can only be undertaken through voluntary offerings.
It is for this reason that we are inviting you to be our Mission Partner so that we can establish and sustain the PLW in these areas thus sharing the Good News of the Gospel. We will be sending you regular updates as to the status of the mission either through electronic and or regular mail.
