The Divine Word Missionaries (SVD) of the Philippine Southern Province (PHS) had their seminar workshop on school and hospital governance at the SVD Retreat House of the University of San Carlos (USC) in Talamban Campus, Cebu City on June 17-18, 2016. In this one and a half day seminar workshop, the basic and best governance practices of Catholic schools in the Philippines, the reportorial requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and financial literacy, particularly understanding financial statements were discussed extensively.

According to the Fr. Dayag, impetus of the seminar-workshop was “to deepen the understanding of the participants on governance practices of Catholic schools in the Philippines, particularly the SVD schools; to make the participants aware of the functions of the Securities and Exchange Commission vis-à-vis registered corporations, and; to increase the knowledge of the SVDs in analyzing the financial statements of the schools and hospitals.” This is also in preparation for the other members of the congregation whenever they become part of the Board of Trustees in the future.
