Welcome to the BLD Washington Covenant Community

The Bukas Loob Sa Diyos Covenant Community, BLD Washington District, or simply referred to as "BLD Washington", is a community of disciples inspired by the Holy Spirit to be living witnesses for transformation in Christ to bring about a world of justice, human development and true peace.

In response to the challenges of our particular place, time, and culture, we will evangelize families and build communities of faith through Encounters, Life in the Spirit Seminars and Discipleship Formation; we will give formation on personal and family prayer, pro-life values, Catholic social teachings, and stewardship; we will actively participate in the life and mission of the Church in accord with our God-given gifts; and we will work on poverty alleviation through scholarships, housing for the poor, and advocacies for life, environment, and good governance.
