The encounter aimed to equip educators with the necessary knowledge and resources to effectively accompany the children to develop a strong, enduring and close relationship with God in this time of modern culture. Educators were provided training and support to ensure a solid, scripture-based, relevant, life-giving, meaningful and interesting catechetical program to help the children personally encounter Jesus in their daily life – one that will support them as they mature and progress in their Christian life. 

Sr. Lorena V. Briones, FSP, of the Paulines Publishing House presented an overview of the Paulines Christian Living Series, highlighting its key features, content, and methodology. She also gave a short input on Basic Catechism, Christian Living  Lesson Plan, and Spirituality of Catechists/Christian Living Educators. Members of FSP-Cagayan de Oro Community namely: Sr. Maricar Andamon, Sr. Amelyne Paglinawan, and Sr. Leah de los Santos, assisted her in the presentation. 

The series of encounters began with a Bible Enthronement and ended with a short commissioning prayer-recollection. Each participant was given a certificate of participation for having attended the encounter.
