Then Rev. Fr. Rector, invoked God's presence and guidance upon each of the participants through a spontaneous prayer.

Sr. Perpetua conducted the seminar for the students. On the first day she addressed the children about growth and human anatomy which she explained through some visual aids. The next two days she dealt on how they can be effective teens if they utilized the electromagnetic power within each one. The children at the end of three days expressed their satisfaction.
