They spend their time with children and sick people giving them hope, joy and love. They do teaching, painting, and other manual works where their talents and skills can be of used.
On 9 June, they were welcomed at the Marist Fathers District House in Davao city. Present where the Lay Marists and the Marist sisters as well the staff of the Centers where the boys will be working. After a simple welcome liturgy, a lovely meal was prepared and a short and spontaneous entertainment ended the gathering.
