SCHOOL OPENING 2015-2016

Welcome DWCU Students!

Welcome to SY 2015 – 2016!

Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD, DWCU President

Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD, DWCU President

The School Year 2015 – 2016 is about to commence and I take the honor and privilege to welcome you all. A warm welcome to each and every one of you!

The theme taken by DepEd for this school year is: “Makapag-aral ay Karapatan Mo, Magpalista. The theme emphasizes that education is a primordial concern of everybody and that it is a right and privilege of every Filipino. Since education is a right, it projects that there are commensurate responsibilities required in order that the goals of education may be achieved.

At DWCU, education is creative, innovative, and participative where students, parents, alumni, teachers, and administrations work hand in hand in order to make it a reality.

Education as expressed by a certain author, could be likened to a canvass which is full of opportunities where students and mentors throw and spill their paints of different talents and abilities giving their own individual and collective strokes and forming a Masterpiece of Art.

The key to the goal of education could be expressed in a four-letter word – HELP.         a) Help from parents in terms of their cooperation in preparing their children for school for we believe that education is nurtured at home and magnified in school.       b) Help coming from the teachers, administrators, and religious of this institution since education is a life-long learning. They need to enhance their professionalism, and dedication to teaching. c) Finally, help from you students who are the agents of learning. You need to take constant actions to further your education.

Try to be self-motivated and throw as much paint of talents and abilities to your canvass of opportunities in education. Then look forward to the day in the future when you may be in a position to respond to the request of people who may need your help.

Once again, welcome to Divine Word College of Urdaneta for School Year 2015 – 2016. This is the place where you can make your dreams come true and where education is a masterpiece of art! – Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD

DWCU 48th Foundation Day

Happy 48th Foundation Day DWCU!

Theme: “DWCU@48: Joining Hands in Love,

Praise and Service”

"DWCU at 48: Joining Hands in Love, Praise and Service"

“DWCU at 48: Joining Hands in Love, Praise and Service”

The Divine Word College of Urdaneta was founded in 1967 by the Missionaries of the Divine Word under the pioneering initiatives of the late Fr. August Herbers, SVD. A school intended for seminarians to prepare them to become future missionaries, opened its missionary doors to other young people, thereby it evolved to cater the educational needs of the pre-schoolers up to college nowadays.  Through all those years of meritorious existence, this educational institution stood firm in its commitment to quality education, giving its best to prepare young men and women for the attainment of a bright future they aim to reach.  At present, some of us are children of those who passed the portals of Divine Word College of Urdaneta, who are already in the best status in life like successful business men and women, in the arts, industries, professionals, and some have joined the ranks of the SVDs as missionary priests and brothers.  These are only a few of the many reasons for us to celebrate with joy a thanksgiving with this year’s foundation day there: “DWCU at 48:  Joining Hands in Love, Praise and Service”.

A Message from Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD

Fr Gil Manalo,SVD giving his message to

Fr Gil T. Manalo,SVD

                 Welcome to DWCU for School Year 2014 – 2015. Today, as we gather in this assembly, we see the convergence of the old and the new through the presence of our Administrators, Faculty, Parents, Guardians, Alumni and Students. The old stands for stability and sturdiness, while the new symbolizes hope, energy and creativity.
As the years passed by, we were guided by the motto: “Word of Truth, Word of Life” and in the most recent years, “Witness to the Word”. St. Augustine would concretize witness through work as he expressed “A work is then truly excellent when the intention of the workman is struck out from the love of God and returns again and again to rest in charity.” In the realm of the academe, education reaches its excellence when the intentions of both mentors and students are struck out from the love of God and expressed in action through Christian Charity. Let this school Year 2014-2015 empower us in faith and action all for the God’s greater glory!

A BLESSED ASH WEDNESDAY

Let us pray…

Grant, O Lord, that we may begin with holy fasting this campaign of Christian service, so that, as we take up battle against spiritual evils, we may be armed with weapons of self-restraint. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
