After months of planning and construction, the long dreamed-for covered courts at Our Lady of Lourdes Seminary had finally been constructed and inaugurated. On the second day of the Annual Provincial Easter Assembly, April 23, 2014, Br. Eugenio Juanilo P.Lopez,OFMCap., Provincial Minister, led the brothers in blessing the Lourdes Seminary Covered Courts. The newly-built Lourdes Seminary Covered Courts has a basketball court, volleyball court and a badminton court built for the seminary and Province’ recreational purposes. There is also a stage built at the center that can be used for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and other activities of the Province. One brother commented that the court took ten years to construct. Hopefully, now the sports and recreational activities of the brothers will no longer be interrupted even when the rains come.
After the blessing the brothers had basketball games as part of the annual assembly schedule. Br. Sergio P. Arenga,OFMCap and Br.Gabriel E. Estil,OFMCap were the brothers in charge of the construction directly supervising the project from the planning stage up to its completion.
