The Pastoral Ministry of Don Bosco Technical Institute of Makati concluded the two-day Orientation and Planning with a theme: “Shepherds After God’s Own Heart” last August 11-12, 2021. It was held via Zoom and attended by the 32 Pastoral Ministers. The occasion was graced by Fr. Jose Favie Faldas, SDB, Rector and Fr. Juvelan Paul Samia, SDB, Director for Pastoral Ministry.
The first day was spent to get to know one another, understand the nature of Pastoral Ministry in a Salesian School, and be acquainted with the new Pastoral Ministry structure.
The second day was focused on formulating the vision-mission of the Pastoral Ministry. They were divided into four (4) groups. The grouping was per department (Elementary, Junior High School, Senior High School, and TVET). Each group was given time to formulate a vision-mission that will be presented by their representative. The activity was a productive and a fruitful one, everyone gave their 100% participation and contribution in formulating the vision-mission of the Pastoral Ministry. The said vision-mission will serve as guide and direction towards achieving the school’s goal of producing students who are good Christians and upright Citizens.
It was truly an experience of camaraderie and friendship, and the true joy of the Gospel! Everyone felt blessed to be an active agent of the continuing ministry of St. John Bosco to the young.
