The academic community of the Basic Education Department headed by the RVM sisters , S. Ma. Amelia V. Sadaba, RVM and S. Ma. Ruth G. Rabang, RVM rekindles their successful Retreat and Lakbay-Aral in Luzon last January 22-27, 2011 specifically in Betania Retreat House in Tagaytay City, Villa Escuderero in San Pablo Laguna , Lights and Sound in Intramuros , Tiera de Maria Our Lady Manaog Shrine , Pink Sisters House , China Ocean Park and Phoenix Publishing House in Quezon City where the group resides .
The crisp cool air blowing in from the sea that greets them as you step out in their vehicle is a welcomed and exciting prelude to the spectacular views that you will most likely never see elsewhere in the world but only in Tagaytay. Truly, it’s one of the best places in the country. The team’s days with the Lord went well with Bro. Emmanuel “Noel’ Dela Cruz Salvacion, SVD as the facilitator. Nothing compares with the bond, laughter’s and tears shared by the group to each other as one big happy family. They journey closer and closer to God, which also draws them closer and closer to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.
The alluring and fresh environment of Villa Escudero and the historical sketch of Lights and Sounds in Intramuros brought the team to the past where life and ancient memories unfolds. Discovering the majestic creatures under the sea in Manila Ocean Park is a one of a kind experience. The gigantic image of Our Lady of Manaoag and the sacred place of the Pink Sisters House brings enlightens more the spiritual formation of the teachers seeing the beauty of prayer towards salvation .
It is with great joy and pride that St. Michael’s College isn’t just a home but above all a family. Our earnest thanks to the RVM sisters and the education ministry for this wonderful opportunity to be into places which were once far beyond our dreams. And we would also like to thank our SMC colleagues for welcoming us back. Thank You & God Bless us All!
