Calamba City. Claretian Missionaries of the Philippine Province gathered together at the Mornese Spiritual Center in Pansol, Laguna for their annual provincial retreat last November 17 to 22, 2014. Fr. Paul Smyth, CMF, vicar general of the congregation facilitated the retreat and led the group into a deeper reflection of the identity of the Claretians and the living of the evangelical vows as well as its renewal. He facilitated some group dynamics that eventually encouraged each member of the province to reflect and to share the many thoughts and realizations provoked by the dynamics itself. Furthermore, communities took turns in animating the group during prayers and Eucharistic celebrations. Also during the retreat, the province celebrated the birthday of Frs. Bernardo Blanco, CMF and Elmer Cantular, CMF. At the end of the retreat, the group went for a swim at the nearby resort.
