MANILA – Drawing inspiration from ordinary people’s personal stories, the Light of Jesus (LOJ) community invites the faithful to the “Shine Forth!” Holy Week Retreat 2017 and Grand Easter Feast on April 13, 14, and 16 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

“The Holy Week Retreat this year is extra-special. …We’ll talk about their needs, about their stories—we’ll start from there, and connect it to the main events of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus,” said Ruby Jean Albino, marketing director of Shepherd’s Voice Radio and TV Foundation (SVRTV), which is organizing the Holy Week Retreat and Grand Easter Feast 2017

She added: “We’ll do it in a way that will speak to people in a language that they will best understand.”

Focusing on the “letting the light of Jesus dispel all the darkness in our lives, and allowing it to shine through us”, this year’s retreat also features more inspirational speakers: Bo Sanchez, Alvin Barcelona, Fr. Bob McConaghy, Fr. Bong Lo, Didoy Lubaton, John Ben Rodriguez, JC Libiran, and Audee Villaraza.

Produced by SVRTV, both events are open to the public. Ticket prices vary depending on the location of seats, and can be viewed via
