Filipino Chinese Catholic Community of Saint Jude
Filipino Chinese Catholic Community of Saint Jude is an organization whose purpose is to train young Chinese Catholics to evangelize to the Chinese community.
Decades ago Reverend Father Louis Papilla dreamed of having an organization, thus in March 1954, the Chinese Catholic Youth (CCY) was born. Its former name of this organization is Chinese Catholic Youth, which was organized to the purpose of giving special training for Chinese catholics to tackle the evangelization of the Chinese community.
It was founded to provide more leadership training and spiritual formation to prepare for a better and a true catholic community among the Chinese in the future.
In 1976, the organization's official name was changed to "Filipino-Chinese Catholic Youth" or FCCY to keep up with the times.
When Most Reverend Msgr. Juan B. Velasco, OP,D.D. past away, The Most Rev. Msgr. teodoro Buhain, D.D. was appointed as the new General Director for all chinese Apostolates and Rev. Fr. Santiago Leon, S.J. as the National Ecclestiastical assistant for FCCY.
In 1999, FCCY re-examined its organizational structure and re-organized to cater to the needs of the new generation of Chinese-Filipino youths.
FCCY now exists as a mandated national organization by the formal approval of the Catholic youth, the FCCY National Directorate was formed which composed of 6 National Stewards under the guidance of the remarkable Rev. Fr.Peterson Teing, LRMS as thee National Spiritual director.
