In order to spiritually enliven the faculty members of the College of Business and Accountancy, the college scheduled a retreat at Balay Kahayag, Upper Laya, Baclayon. It was a protracted activity being scheduled originally a month earlier. At that time, the priests of the Diocese of Tagbilaran were having their retreat on the original date, June 5 to 6, thus the college was not able to get a retreat master.
The retreat master was Fr. Jose Cecil Lobrigas, the Parochial Vicar of St. Joseph Cathedral, and at the same time the Chancellor of the Diocese of Tagbilaran. He talked about each person’s brokenness and how a person should deal with it. His talks were very enlightening and spiritually uplifting. His use of visual aids made him more effective in driving his points. It was culminated with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist with the special intention on the successful recovery of the dean of the college, Dr. Jemma J. Jay, CPA, who was having her operation in Cebu City at that time.
