DLSU-M organizes regional reflection council for NCR-Rizal

De La Salle University-Manila (DLSU-M) will host the first Regional Reflection Council (RRC) meeting for the NCR-Rizal Region on February 8 at the North Wing, Conservatory. The RRC gathering is the first in a series of four meetings in preparation for the Philippine Lasallian Family Convocation to be held in May 2003.

Four Commissions were set up and the task of each commission was delegated to one of the four regions. These are the Lasallian Formation and Governance (NCR-Rizal), New Apostolates (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas), Lasallian Relationships and Association (Visayas), and Current Apostolates (Mindanao).

DLSU-M Executive Vice President Dr. Carmelita Quebengco and Brothers’ Community Director at DLSU-M Br. Mawell Pajarillo are the Regional Coordinators for NCR-Rizal.

The first RRC for NCR-Rizal will feature talks, reflection and a workshop. To give the background and framework for discussion, Economics Professor Dr. Tereso Tullao, Vice President for Academics and Research Brother Andrew Gonzalez, FSC, and Counselor Education faculty Dr. Barbara Wong-Fernandez will talk about the Philippine economy, education, and youth and family respectively. Lasallian Partner Office Director Mike Gamo will report on the status of the Synod MAP.

The delegates will divide into four groups, each composed of representatives from the different sectors of the Lasallian institutions from NCR-Rizal. They will contemplate four areas: current apostolates, new apostolates, Lasallian family formation and governance, and Lasallian relationships and association. Each area will have guide questions based on the Lasallian MAP as basis for discussion.

At the end of the workshop presentations, the secretariat will work on the summary reports per area integrating the feedback of the body during the workshop. The collated reports will serve as inputs for the next RRC meeting.

The NCR-Rizal sector is composed of DLSU-Manila, DLSU-Professional Schools, Inc., DLSU-College of St. Benilde, La Salle Green Hills, DLS-Zobel, La Salle School-Antipolo, and the San Benildo Integrated School.
