The highlight for the month of October was when YLDC attended the Jesus Encounter Seminar (JES) organized by the ACTS a Catholic Community last October 22, 2016 at Alberione Hall of St. Paul Seminary in St Paul Road, Bagtikan, Pasong Tamo Makati.  JES happens twice a year every May and October. event-3

It was a one day seminar aimed at enabling the participants to have a one-on-one encounter with the Lord through the talks given by the three(3) great Catholic preachers.

Our Center Director, Mr. Butch Nayona, invited the YLDC team and students to attend the seminar in line with our Values Enhancement Course.  The seminar was really helpful in introducing or re-introducing Jesus to us. One of our objectives in our Values Enhancement course is to strengthen relationship with God by taking Jesus as our Model.

The seminar was divided into four parts:

  • Jesus Loves you (by Bro. Vic Pestano of OASIS of Love)
  • Jesus is Alive (by Sis. Rox Velasquez one of their house speakers)
  • Receiving the Power of the Holy Spirit (by Bro. Vic Pestano of OASIS of Love)
  • Jesus is Lord centering on the Growth & Transformation (by Bro. Chito Jongco of the Beloved of the Lord Community)


The seminar also had confessions during the talks; some of us went there to have penance. The seminar ended with the Annointing of Holy Spirit. This was a first to our students and the staff. This seminar helped our students to have strengthen their faith and relationship with God.
