Students told to respect relationships


STUDENTS from Don Bosco Technical Institute (DBTI) in Port Moresby were told to ensure that the relationships they had in their lives were always respectful.
Catholic Bishops Conference Youth and Social Communications secretary Fr Ambrose Pereira said this during a year-end spiritual retreat for final-year students.
“Simple acts of kindness and gratitude should always be considered when dealing with holiness.”
A final year student, Eslyne Tule, said the retreat had been a time for her to reflect on her life as an individual.
“I had the time to disconnect myself from others and things from the world, to see what things I need to change and the things that I want to improve in my life.”
Another student, Celestine Bouman, told the participants that knowingly doing wrong just to please friends was wrong and should be avoided.
“If we keep ourselves on the right track, we will get respect from friends and people around us,” Bouman said.
DBTI president Fr Alex Garces told the students that their lives in DBTI was a climb and that it was just one mountain they have climbed.
“There are other mountains you will have to climb,” he said.
