As a yearly tradition...NDBC takes a few days' off to hold its annual retreat. Generally the retreat starts on Palm Sunday (April 9 this year) and ends Holy Tuesday (April 11). Management and staff were all in one in the celebration regardless of religious affiliations and beliefs... Catholics, Moslems, INC, etc. It is at this time of the year that employees from the Central Office and the four(4) branches (Kidapawan/Cotabato/Koronadal/Makati) meet each other personally and get to spend quality and luxurious time. At the end of the activity, everyone went their own way feeling relaxed and refreshed. As our retreat master, Fr. Irvin Morastil, OMI, has said in one of the sessions: "...God created us in his image and sees that we are not just good but VERY GOOD!" ... very good indeed we all are!!!
