The Culmination of the DWCU Rosary Devotion 2009
The three images of the Blessed Virgin Mary represented the three departments of the Divine Word College of Urdaneta namely: the Pre-school/Elementary, High School (Secondary Level) and College (Tertiary Level). The same images were carried in a procession by the members of the said departments from the St. Michael’s Gymnasium to their abode for almost a month during the opening of this year’s rosary devotion so dear to the whole academic community.
The whole month of October is very significant to the DWCU’s Catholic Tradition honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary the mother of the Divine Word through meditating the mysteries of the Holy Rosary. In all the departments the rosary is being prayed daily throughout the month for world peace, the conversion of sinners, the fortification of our families, for protection against all kinds of calamities…and so on…and so forth. We believe that the family that prays together, stays together.
What we started beautifully as a community last October 2, 2009 (first Friday of the month) during the Celebration of the Word and the Eucharist ended meaningfully last October 29 in a para-liturgical rites with the “Living Rosary” attended by all the members of the DWCU community. After the culmination rites the President expressed his commendation and heartfelt gratitude to all the Divinians specially to those who selflessly contributed their time, talent and treasure for the success of this year’s observance of the month of Mary. The culmination rites officially closed the first semester of the school year 2009-2010.
