College of St. Benilde Counseling Week Invitation

The following is an email inviting everyone to the De La Salle University-College of St. Benilde Counseling Week. Please read along.

Dear Fr. Bernard,

Once again, De La Salle College of St. Benilde is celebrating the Center for Counseling Week on Sept 23 to Sept 27, (2008). I remember that one time you were one of the presenters. In behalf of the center, I am inviting you and other fellow counselors who might want to celebrate with us. As of this email, we still lack one counselor for case presentation, someone from readers of your blog might be interested. I am sending you the letter we sent to NCR counselors; kindly post this invitation in your blog. Thanks again!
