The community that manages the Province’s retreat house was officially accepted as a house of the Order on February 5, 2010 and inaugurated on April 19, 2010. The pioneering community was composed of the following friars: Fr. Jerome P. Mesina, OSA, Fray Stephen O. Tan, OSA and Fr. Tarquin C. Gamao, OSA. On August 27, 2011, Feast of Saint Monica, the friars’ residence was solemnly blessed.
Built on a hilly five-hectare lot in Barangay Tolo-tolo, Consolacion, Cebu, the Santo Niño Spirituality Center (SNSC) was built in response to a great need of the Province to have its own place for spiritual renewal, retreats and other big gatherings. The construction of the retreat center started in March 2007 and became fully operational in 2010. The retreat house was solemnly blessed by the then Prior General and now Bishop of Chiclayo in Peru – the Most Rev. Robert F. Prevost, OSA on January 15, 2009, the day on which Province celebrated its 25th Inaugural Anniversary.
