Giving primacy to spiritual formation, the faculty and staff of Saint Michael College embarked on a journey of faith, prayer, and silence in a retreat held on October 17-19, 2013 at the Jesuit Retreat House, Good Shepherd Road, Banawa Hills, Cebu City. The facilitator was Miss Isabel S. de los Santos.
The spiritual event commenced with the celebration of the Eucharist in the evening of October 16 followed by an orientation and pre-disposition activity facilitated by Mr. Chris Sagun of the Jesuit Retreat House.
Through the years, Saint Michael College stood firm in serving God and mankind through education. The feast of Saint Michael this year was celebrated with different activities that started with the first college reunion on September 21, 2013. This was attended by 200 alumni who were glad to see each other, and spent time together to reminisce their “good old days.” A Holy Mass at 2:00 p.m. was offered at the Immaculate Conception Parish Church presided by Rev. Fr. Danny Garay, DCT and was followed by a parade around the town. The program came next and the alumni were introduced by batch.
