The Vicariate of Bontoc and Lagawe gathered several of its Family and Life Core Teams for its Basic Counseling Skills training held last May 24 to 28, 2016. The said training was facilitated by Dr. Alda Perlita S. Polestico. This was held in Banaue (May 24 to 26) and Bauko (May 26 to 28). A follow-up session was later held at the Teng-Ab Pastoral Center in Bontoc from September 2 to 4, 2016.

Family and Life Director Fr. Harry James Gawongna of the Vicariate was on hand to welcome Dr. Polestico, together with Family and Life Consultants Christian and Nicola Maier (and their children: Tabea, Salome and Debora), and Magdalena Bagyan, Family and Life Officer. The occasion was also a great reunion for Fr. Harry and Dr. Pearl, his former Human Formation professor at the Saint Vincent School of Theology where he graduated his theology studies.
