Mr. Charles Javier

This will be given by Mr. Charles Javier from Abra, a retired Teacher and Principal. He has given this workshop in many schools in the Philippines, mostly in the north and in other countries as well. At present, he is the Diocesan Biblical Coordinator of the Diocese of Bangued, Abra.

He will teach the participants on different ways of teaching the Bible that the Teacher and Pupils will enjoy while learning. The seminar includes a hands-on workshop of preparing the materials to be used by the Teacher. He has also prepared ready-made materials that he will share with the Participants. Some materials he will still make when we will know how many are participating.

This seminar-workshop is especially helpful to Catechists and Teachers who are teaching the Bible to kindergarten, primary and elementary students. This is a stay-in workshop to be held at CLFC, Talamban, Cebu City. CLFC is located at the back of San Isidro Labrador Parish Church (follow the dirt road going to the cell-site tower that ends at our green gate).

The registration fee is Php 1,800.00/person that includes board & lodging and the book Inspiration and Imagination. The things and materials that the participant needs to take along to the seminar-workshop are printed on the second page. Kindly give this to your prospective participants.

The number of participants is limited due to the limitation of working space. So this will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Please email us at for further inquiries and reservation. You may also call us at 344-0170, 416-0089, 5116471 (my mobile landline) or text me at 0906-358-6054. Thank you very much.

Kindly let me know on or before Sept.14, 2015, so we will know how many are participating since some materials are still to be made for them. Thank you and God bless.

Sincerely yours,

Estrella (Star) del Mar

CLFC Director
