Clenton Oplas, Bro. Joseph In Soon Choi, Bro. Carl Angelo Balaan, and Bro. Michael Seong Nam Kim met each other at the St. Hannibal Formation Center in Cebu, before proceeding to Tagbilaran, Bohol. The encounter which aimed to be a locus of fraternity and dialogue, of sharing growth experiences and visions and of just being together and cherish each other's giftedness was hosted by the generous and hospitable friend and benefactor - the family of Dra. Edna Lao, on October 26-29, 2015.
