So we have 4 from Cotabato City and 6 from Tacurong City. Their age range is from 28 to 63 years old, with an average of 43 years old.



The facilitators for this training were Joe Bulao of Cotabato City, Baby Valmonte of Zamboanga City, and Josie Tionko of the St. Teresa Community of Davao City.



At exactly 2 p.m. last October 27 Wednesday 2010 Fr. Rudy Z. Relator, DCC (Diocesan Clergy of Cotabato) welcomed the participants to his San Jose Farm Spiritual Center. He briefed us on the facilities of the Center, especially on security issues, such as the 10 security dogs which are harmless as long as the participants do not run. (The family of Fr. Relator owns this 3.5 hectare farm which he transformed into a spiritual center with the necessary facilities after his retirement from active service in the Archdiocese. Joe learned from the foreman of the carpenters that Fr. Rudy expected the dormitory to be finished just in time for this training. He was expecting some big amount which could have expedited the finishing of the dormitory. Unfortunately the amount did not arrive and so in a hurry they transformed the kiosks into huts where we could sleep. Some of our beddings got wet by the rain but Fr. Rudy replaced them immediately with dry ones).



Then Joe Bulao gave the first exercise, introducing oneself by explaining one’s name using a meta card and the blackboard. In this way there was no need for a name tag and the participants would always remember the names which were pasted on a post. This exercise was followed by a merienda.



Then he got the expectations of the group about this training. After this he explained the objectives of the training. He noted that this was a unique training because not one of the participants was an actual formator. Then the facilitators and participants agreed on the schedule for the following days.



The facilitators then led the participants into the recollection on the Values of the Teresian Charism. Reflection and evening praise began at 6 pm. Supper was at 6:45, followed by rest.



(Second Day)



October 28 Thursday 2010



We began our activities with practicing the singing of some parts of Morning Praise, then we had our Mass presided by Fr. Rudy and concelebrated by Fr. Gilbert Nasataya, DCC, vice rector of the Regional Major Seminary in Davao City. Fr. Gilbert also gave the homily.



Breakfast was at 7:30. After 1 hour we had our Morning Praise, followed by meditation. Then the facilitators continued with the recollection topic “The Contemplative Orientation”. Merienda followed at 10:30, then we went to the topics on “The Following of Christ” and the “A Deep Sense of the Church”. We had lunch at 12:30.



The afternoon session started at 2:45. The recollection topic dealt with was “A New Style of Community Life”. The recollection ended, followed by a merienda at 3:30.



The Exercise in Transformative Journey was done after the merienda. There were three groups drawn by lots. Each group had a male participant. This was the only day during the duration of the training when it did not rain. We thank the Lord for this. The exercise was followed by processing and sharing. Supper was at 7:45 followed by Evening Praise and rest.



(Third Day)



October 29 Friday 2010



We had our Morning Praise at 6:35, followed by Mass with Fr. Rudy at 6:50. This was followed by breakfast. At 8:51 we had our Meditation. Then we had our orientation on the workshop on the Lifeline. At 10:45 each of the participants shared his/her lifeline. This took sometime so that our lunch was eaten only at 12:55, almost 1 o’clock.



After lunch and rest we had the workshop on envisioning our formands from Aspirancy to TP 3. We began the sharing at 3:20 each one sharing what he/she would want his/her formandee would be in each stage of formation.



After this workshop and sharing there was a heavy rain which prevented us from going to the dining room. So we stayed quiet in the session hall after Evening Praise until the rain allowed us to eat our supper which was done at 7:45. (Our schedule for this was 6:30.) After supper we retired.



(Fourth day)



October 30 Saturday 2010



We had Mass at 6:45 again with Fr. Rudy. After the Mass we had picture taking of the group together with him. At 8:35 we had our Morning Praise followed by Meditation. Please click on the attached picture to enlarge it if it is still small in your computer.



At 9:30 we had the Overview of the OCDS Program of Formation, Reading and Sharing the capsules on Aspirancy, Novitiate 1, Novitiate 2, Temporary Promise 1, Temporary Promise 2, and Temporary Promise 3. This was followed by preparation for The Best of the Worst Scenarios Exercise. At 11:35 they presented their scenarios. And we had sharing about insights from the scenarios. This was followed by Exercise in Bulleting: Theology, History, Carmelite spirituality. Planning followed. At 12:45 each group presented their plans:



The Tacurong Group planned to have a session on the clarification of the officers of the Group. The members of this Group planned a new way of welcoming the new comers. (The clarification was done last November 7.)



The Cotabato Group planned to have a re-echo of this training in Cotabato City this December, the formation program would be introduced to the aspirants of this group, assignments would be given to members to take care of the aspirants, lectures on Carmelite founders with some detail would be given, sponsorship by the OCDS of the Mass in the Queen of Peace Parish every fifth Sunday of the month (when there is a fifth Sunday) and the establishment of a Spiritual Center at the building of former Ignatian College. (The Cotabato group passed by this building before going home and Rose showed Eking and Joars the building and grounds.)



After the presentation of plans, the participants wrote down their evaluation of the training in the form that was given to them. Then certificates of participation were given to the participants by the facilitators Joe, Baby and Josie. Lunch followed. It was already past 1 pm. After lunch they returned to their respective places in Cotabato, Tacurong and Davao.



Here is the result of the Evaluation the participants made.

Venue and food



  1. What aspect of the training struck you as most meaningful?





  1. What aspect of the training do you think needs improvement?





  1. What other comments do you want to share with the group?



Synthesis of the evaluation:



  1. In general the participants appreciated the training. They thought that it helped them become better Carmelites.



  2. They are unanimous in saying that this training should be given to all OCDS. What they are trying to say is that each Carmelite should be a formator, no one is a mere follower.



  3. They realize the need for more time, especially for sharing.



  4. They noted the inadequacy of the venue and facilities, especially the CR. But they also appreciated the solitude of the place. The plan of Fr. Rudy is that in the dorm each room will accommodate only 4 participants and each room has a CR and bathroom.



  5. This was the training where before we had a session we had an ice or eyes breakers because Joars and Eking are experts on this. In fact they have written a book on Ice/Eyes Breakers.



  6. They really like the food. For 50 pesos every meal it was a very cheap meal with that kind of delicious and abundant food. Rose even had her daily dose of Guyabano leaves juice for her cancer. The cook prepared this for her every morning.



Now the participants are on fire to be formators. Next year three of them (Rose, Glace, Neng) hopefully will be definitive already. They can then act officially as formators. In the meantime the others can help the Holy Spirit form themselves into genuine barefoot Carmelites. In this way they can still be formators, of themselves.



Thanks to your prayers and support. The training was more or less successful.
