MMP International Responsible Fr. Laurent Larroque visited the Philippines on the last week of September until the first week of October this year. Together with Msgr. Cesar Pagulayan, MMP Philippines National Responsible, and Fr. Thomas Villanueva, Fr. Larroque went to Sto. Tomas Batangas to meet and conduct the cenacle at the Padre Pio Shrine with different cenacle groups numbering hundreds that included their families. Then he went to Cavite where another group of lay cenacle members met him and he conducted another simple cenacle with them. 

On his visit to Tagaytay, Fr. Larroque, accompanied by the members of MMP Philippines, saw the beautiful and petite shrine of Our Lady of Caysasay and the nearby Shrine of St. Martin of Tours where he met the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Madlangbayan who happened to be Msgr. Cesar's classmate at UST. 

Fr. Larroque also went to Cebu and Davao to check on the cenacle groups there. The highlights of his visit are the Clergy Retreat held from September 29 to October 1 and the Lay Recollection held on October 4, both at the Lay Formation Center of San Carlos Seminary in Makati.
