Fr. Ordoña's Birthday

PCC Celebrates Fr. Orlin F. Ordoña’s Birthday

PCC College President, Rev. Fr. Orlin F. Ordoña celebrated his 53rd birthday with a Eucharistic Celebration wherein he told the students the story of Zacchaeus, and related it to real-life situations. The story of Zacchaeus is about a rich man due to his job as a tax collector. Even with all his material wealth, he still felt unhappy and incomplete. One day, he had an encounter with God and promised that he will return the money to the people because he felt fulfilled.

Rev. Fr.Orlin related the story with the students by asking “Ilang oras ba tayo nakababad sa internet?” and reminded the pupils that other than studying, we should give time in praying and talking to God, because just like Zacchaeus, wealth will not give meaning to our lives. Zacchaeus found the meaning of life when he had an encounter with God.“One encounter with Jesus will forever change your life; let this encounter not be a chance wasted. The encounter should not be a missed opportunity but rather a grace-filled encounter with God that will lead us to our spiritual growth and sense of fulfilment.” Before Rev. Fr. Orlin gave the final blessing, he thanked God for the all the opportunities, and for all the love he continuously receives.

The Early Childhood Education (ECE) students presented a song number and gave the celebrant pink and red roses as a sign of their love. The celebration continued at the St. Pedro Calungsod Hall wherein groups of High School students also presented song numbers for the birthday celebrant. A Eucharistic Adoration was also held inside the campus.

MaPSA Celebrates its 60th Anniversary

The Manila Ecclesiastical Province Schools System Association (MaPSA) opened its 60th Anniversary with the theme: “Sisentana po tayo! Mapsaya!” at the Manila Cathedral with representatives from the entire MaPSA member-schools.

Before the Eucharistic Celebration begun, a group of students presented a dance number with the MAPSA Theme song. During the mass, Cardinal Luis Antonio “Chito” Tagle, the Archbishop of Manila emphasized in his homily the relationship between knowledge and faith, that it must support each other rather than fight. In addition, he mentioned the importance of teachers because God is a teacher and education runs in the blood of the Church. He also reminded the audience that “if people forget about God, our hobbies will be our idols, thus society will be ruined.”

Cardinal Tagle shared the goal of MaPSA, which is to gather all the Catholic schools and teach them to help each other instead of destroying one another, and that Catholic Schools must help one another. Before he ended his homily, he advocated “Sana habang nagpapakadalubhasa, lalong lumalalim ang pagtuklas sa Diyos.” Before the mass ended, a video presentation on the line-up of activities was presented,then Cardinal Tagle formally declared the festivities open.
