Vincentian Leadership“Train The Trainers” Program For Vinfam Asia-Pacific

Date Posted: May 2, 2009 at 04:21:35 AM

April 30 marked the culmination of the two-week Vincentian Leadership ‘Train the Trainer’ Program (VLP) held at Villa Sta. Luisa, Tagaytay City. It is a collaborative endeavor of De Paul University (DPU), Adamson University (AdU) and the Vincentian Center for Asia-Pacific (VINCAP) in order to promote Vincentian legacy and leadership. The VLP’s main objectives are to enhance leadership potentials as well as prepare leaders to carry on and adapt the training program to their own institutions or associations.


Thirty-six participants from 21 Vincentian Family branches and institutions in Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia and the Philippines joined. The main facilitators were De Paul University’s Fr. J. Patrick Murphy, CM, PhD, (Director, School for Public Service) and Sr. Patricia Bombard, BVM, D.Min, (Director, Vincent on Leadership: The Hay Project). Five other Filipinos who took the leadership course in Chicago and Paris last year, among them AdU President Fr. Gregorio L. Bañaga, CM, co-facilitated and gave the contextualization of some topics. Fr. Bienvenido Disu, CM, Visitor of the Philippine Province gave an inspirational message and Fr. Serafin Peralta, CM, APVC Secretary, celebrated the closing liturgy.


After the program facilitators and participants enjoyed an authentic Filipino dinner experience. Dinner was served in native trays lined with banana leaves, with students and PE teachers from AdU rendering an array of Filipino folk songs, dances and instrumentations for entertainment. Everyone joined in the fun; even Fr. Murphy & Sr. Pat hopped in between bamboo poles as they attempted to dance the tinikling.


Plans are now in place to share and implement the course to the AdU community in the incoming school year. The team leading the program will be made up of the four delegates who attended the training program: Dr. Carl Mark Miniano, PhD, BA Department chairperson; Mr. Paciano Ferrer, IRED Director; Mrs. Ellen Estares, faculty from the Basic Ed Department; and Mr. Joseph Duyan from the Campus Ministry Office. OVIM Director Ms. Pamela B. Mantuhac will also join the team.
