Augustinian friars from Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod officially held the transfer of Residence of the Centro Sant’ Agostino – Benedicto Retreat House at Don Salvador Benedicto, Negros Occidental.
Four friars are set to stay in the retreat house and supervise its operations starting today, October 1, 2021 on the Feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus.
The official transfer of residence was highlighted with a Eucharistic celebration attended by the members of the CSA Bacolod community and the incoming assigned friars.
Rev. Fr. Elmer Lendo, OSA is the retreat house administrator accompanied by three friars namely: Fray Leo Jallorina, OSA, Fr. Alfredo Jubac, OSA and Fr. Vincent Liwag, OSA.
Since 2019 the CSA – Bacolod community had been the administrators of the retreat house that provides a place for the growing student population of the school to cater their spiritual needs.
With the formal turnover, it has gained autonomy from the school and made it an Augustinian residence.
