Anihan joined in Incontro Romano 2018

Anihan joined in Incontro Romano National Congress 2018 at PTCC


This year, the Incontro Romano National Congress was held at the Philippine Trade Training Center on Saturday March 3. The event started at 10 am and ended at 3:30 pm. Foundation for Professional Training, Incorporated (FPTI) schools (Anihan Technical School, Manila Institute for Culinary Arts and Residential Services, Punlaan School and Habihan School) and other Opus Dei Centers like Pandan, Tawili, Dalayrayan, Linang Center participated in the event. UP Iloilo, De La Salle University and STI Batangas also joined in the congress.




Incontro Romano is an initiative that was started in 1990, thanks to Blessed Alvaro del Portillo, in order to spread the reality expressed by St. Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei: “All work has a dimension of service when it is carried out thinking about the people to whom it is directed”.

The program started with opening remarks given by Ms. Pinky Castro the National Coordinator of Incontro Romano Philippines. She explained that the event creates spaces for reflection, and promotes an activity which puts the person as the center focus. It fosters interdisciplinary research, training with excellence, and international initiatives. With these activities we seek to respond to the urgent challenge of protecting and improving our “shared home,” planet Earth. It is a platform of professionals and students who aim to highlight jobs where the direct care of the person is the principal focus, because they have the transforming power to make the social environment more human. 

After that, Ms Cherrie Atilano gave an inspirational talk about the theme “Sustainability and Sustainable Development.” Ms Cherrie is the present CEO of AGREA which aim to educate the farmers in modern ways of farming. Stated below are some tips to achieve our personal goals as shared by Ms Cherrie.
