As an observance of the Lenten Season, MGB-IX personnel underwent a day of self-retrospection through a recollection facilitated by Rev. Fr. Marsh Villagracia, Parish Priest of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Church, Guiwan, Zamboanga City. This activity was a continuation of the Team-Building activity spearheaded by the RGAD-TWG and MGBEA Chapter Board held at Monte Vista Resort from March 22-24, 2018.
Fr. Villagracia gave participants points to reflect in relation to the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. He emphasized the importance of forgiveness and our challenge as Christians, which is to love others even those whom we do not like. He also reminded everyone to smile more often and to always keep a happy disposition in life.
At the end of his talk, Fr. Villagracia enjoined everyone to let go with whatever negative feelings we may have toward others and to pray for one another. Celebration of the Holy Eucharist followed to cap the said lenten recollection.
