The teens reality had their "Teens Christmas Fun" last December 20, 2015. This is both an outreach and bonding moment with the group together with their parents and family members.

It started just like any ordinary weekend trip though with a hint of anticipation of what’s in store for us. We landed in Cebu on a Friday November 06. We woke up on a Saturday 07, gearing up for the course orientation at 1pm.
We went to Betania Retreat House in Laugh and handed us over to the warmest formators/facilitators ever. And our weekend was never the same again.
