Monastery of Transfiguration -A Perfect Place for Retreat

We just had our Retreat last April 14-17, 2011 held at the Monastery of Transfiguration located at the top of the mountain in San Jose Malaybalay Bukidnon. It was run and managed by the Benedictine Monks. The place is really a perfect place for retreat because you can really concentrate in meditation and prayer since the place is surrounded by plants and trees and different rare flowers. And all you can hear are the chirping of the birds, the sounds of the insects and animals. As you enter the chapel, you can feel the presence of God because of the silence. As the Monks are particular of the word SILENCE.
