Galilee Center, Tagaytay

During our Batulao meeting (Youth Ministry and Formation delegates, East Asia - Oceania region, Batulao, November 2016), Fabio Attard and I visited the Galilee Centre, Tagaytay, run by the Filipino Bishops' Conference.

The centre offers three kinds of courses: (1) therapeutic renewal programs (2) proactive renewal programs, (3) formation of formators. All the courses are meant for priests and religious. The first – the Assisted Intensive Renewal or AIR Program – is for priests and religious in difficulty and in need of healing and therapy. The second is aimed at seminarians and formees. The third – AIR for Seminary Formators – is for formators.

The formation of formators courses aim at the renewal of the person of the formator, by assisting and encouraging him or her to do their own personal work. So if there are three types of formation of formators programs – theory; skills training; personal growth – Galilee offers the third type. I believe there are two related modules of two weeks each, and another longer one of 3 months.

They have a resident team of 10 professionally qualified priests and religious.
