For the Philippine SVD Southern Province (PHS), it took place last April 13 to 17 in two venues: St. Francis Retreat House at Talisay City and Bantayan Island, North Cebu.

We also visited our JPIC-IDC projects in Bantayan Islands related to typhoon Yolanda Housing and rehabilitation. Our short visit to the satellite office gave us also a glimpse of the livelihood projects of our congregation in cooperation with other charitable organizations.

I saw these children when we were on our island hopping. I wanted to copy this stunt, but the following day, it was low tide.
