Last November 15, 2019, the second B.E.C. Campus Feast was held with the theme, ‘Finding Light in Darkness’.
With the purpose of strengthening the Youth Evangelization in the campus, the Campus Ministry Office invites resource persons who are willing to share their faith-journey and inspire the youth through their stories.
For its second Campus Feast, the office invited Rev. Fr. Bobby Dela Cruz of the Archdiocese of Manila for faith witnessing. His story of conversion went viral in the social media as the drug dependent and drug pusher who eventually becomes a servant of God. Currently, he serves as the Director of the SANLAKBAY program of the Archdiocese of Manila for the youth
During his sharing, Fr. Bobby encouraged the learners to reflect on their own struggles in life as they listen to his story, and stressed the importance of the support system, especially from their families who constantly provide love and support along their journey. Fr. Bobby also reminded the learners to always acknowledge the moving presence of God in their lives, and to deepen their faith in Him, for after all, it is God’s love and mercy that enables each one of us to overcome whatever struggle we face in life.
