Refreshed: AdZU Staff Attends Ministry of Work Colloquium

Thirty-two (32) AdZU staff returned to work with their passion for the mission rejuvenated after the Colloquium on the Ministry of Work last September 4, 2018 at Woodland Resort, Zambowood. Spearheaded by the Human Resource Administration and Development Office (HRADO), the colloquium is a conversation among colleagues about the spirituality of work and their roles in the greater AdZU mission.


Facilitated by Fr Wilfredo Samson, SJ, Vice President for Formation and author of the colloquia modules, the activity was packed with activities for the participants from different clusters of the university workforce. The colloquium started with a talk on the Spirituality of Work where participants were made to recall their individual purpose of working. “Everyone’s role is vital to the achievement of the University’s goal,” stressed Fr Samson. Sharing sessions were also abundant during the colloquium, allowing the participants to process their experiences and voice out their concerns.  


In his talk, Fr Samson also emphasized the importance of rest and self-care. As part of resetting their individual purpose and part in the mission, rest forms an integral part of the program as it allows the participants to relax both their minds and bodies.

HRADO Training and Development Officer Cecile Simbajon, reported that, the idea of the colloquium started last SY 2017-2018 when the University recognized the need to create an avenue for the staff to talk about their work, share experiences, and express the joys and challenges of their work. At that time, the colloquium for faculty, on the Ministry of Teaching, had already been running for thirty years.

 

The colloquium, especially designed for employees who have been with AdZU for more than 10 years, allows for the self-evaluation of one’s body of work while reflecting on the graces and achievements received during their stay in AdZU. As the participants return to campus life, they also return to their mission as a worker and their journey in the ministry of education with a renewed sense of spirit and meaning in their work.
