A gathering of 35 Recollect Augustinian Youth delegates from UNO-R and Talisay Chapter filled the Sta. Monica retreat House with songs , dances and prayers as they held their Formation last January 19-20, 2013. With “FAITH” as the theme, UNO-R RAY President Donson John Sadava, in his Welcome Remarks, said that “the faith is the most important of our life because without it prayers will be useless”. University Chaplain, Rev. Fr. Abraham Latoza, OAR, in his talk, emphasized a “back to basics approach” on the Christian youth’s faith, through reflection on Holy Scripture and regular prayer. After Fr. Latoza’s talk, animations, dinner, trust-building, evening prayer and a Holy Rosary and other activities that build-up enthusiasm and solidarity, as well as spiritual reflection followed. The next day, Jan. 20, the delegates went to San Sebastian Cathedral to attend the Mass in honor of St. Sebastian, the Patron of the Diocese. They also supported the Diocese of Bacolod’s campaign against RH Law.
