It was a time for the boys of the hostel whether new or senior to mix with the committee members, the clergy and the religious and to get to know one another. 

This is the fifth year of operation and some boys who have resided and completed their school education in Forms 5 and 6 have since left the hostel. Various activities are being organized for the boys in the duration of their stay and faith formation is also being given. The boys will attend Sunday Mass at St. Joseph and assist in the mass as mass servers and wardens and the choir.
