DWCU Unites With the People of Japan

DWCU Unites in Sympathy and in Prayer

for the People of Japan

 







Prayer for Earthquake And Tsunami Victims
 
Most merciful and compassionate God,
Giver of Life and Love,
hear our prayers
and let our cries come unto you.
We weep with your people in Japan
We hear the cries of orphaned children and laments of bereaved parents
We feel the desperation of those searching for loved ones
We behold the silence of vanished villages.
We see the devastation.
We are overwhelmed by the enormity of it all.
Our hearts are hushed, our minds are numb.
Let not our hands be stopped, our voices dumb.
God of the universe,
Open our hearts to feel your compassion
Galvanize in us the act of continued giving
Bond us to our sisters and brothers in need
Comfort and heal the injured, the bereaved, the lost
Strengthen the aid workers and medical personnel
Bolster the resolve of governments and those with power to help
Open through this tragedy pathways to partnerships and peace
In Your Name of mercy and healing and compassion we pray,
Amen.

Sacrament of Confirmation Administered to Divinians

Msgr. Lazaro P. Hortaleza, VG

Administered the Sacrament of Confirmation at DWCU

Msgr. Larry Hortaleza,VG

Urdaneta City. Msgr. Lazaro Hortaleza the Vicar General of the Diocese of Urdaneta administered the sacrament of confirmation to 32 Divinians at the Holy Spirit Chapel of the DWCU this morning at 8:15, March 11, 2011. The celebration started with a solemn procession of the candidates for confirmation with their sponsors wherein the administration of the sacrament was done in between the celebration of the Word and the Eucharist. Fr. Servasius W. Tethun, SVD the Campus Minister assisted the main celebrant together with Fr. Bernard Teneza, SVD the rector and Fr. Dominador O. Ramos, SVD the president. Dr. Trofima Pangonilo who celebrates her birthday today was the commentator with the seminarians as the choir. Mr. Rodel Nachima the staff of the Campus Ministry Office assisted in the preparations and in charge of the logistics. The celebration was another project of the Campus Pastoral Council for this year.

Confirmation is a Catholic sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is a Sacrament of Initiation for Catholic and a Sacrament of faith in God’s fidelity to us just like Baptism and Eucharist.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is described as the sacrament of spiritual maturity. It ameliorates the soul of the person with deep graces which include help and assistance of the Spirit. It is the sacrament that addresses the receiver to witness bravely the gift of faith by word and as an example of their lives.

The significance of the sacrament is best described by the petition for the reception as follows:

PETITION FOR THE RECEPTION OF

THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION

Candidates:

THE CELEBRATION OF THE SACRAMENT

Msgr. Vicar General, having reached that age at which one becomes socially aware and is challenged to take his place in society responsibly, I desire to experience fuller initiation in the life and work of my faith- community and to receive the guidance and support I need for an ever on – going conversion in Christ.  With the supportive community of my family, peers, barangay and Parish, I resolve to grow familiar with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, through prayer and study.  I commit myself to his mission and values, and to service for the life and mission of the Church.  It is my own vision that my life, after the pattern set by my Lord, will become, through service to others, Bread – Broken and shared, and Drink – shed and poured for the realization of God’s kingdom and the glory of God.  I seek the grace of increased attunedness to the ever present Holy Spirit, the grace of openness to his light, the grace of obedience to his promptings, and the grace of cooperation with his workings.  I, therefore, ask, for a new coming of the Holy Spirit, and the full outpouring of His gifts upon me, through the imposition of your hands, and the anointing with the Chrism of salvation, that I may be confirmed in Christian discipleship for the realization of this, my resolve.

PARENTS:

We, the parents and elders of these, our children, seek, likewise an outpouring anew of the gifts of the Holy Spirit upon us that we may live up to the responsibility our children’s confirmation places upon us.   We pledge to initiate them in a life of Christian witness and service, and to guide, nurture and support their on – going growth and maturation as Christ’s disciples.  We will provide them a home and a community of faith, open to and cooperating with the ever present Holy Spirit in the thrust towards a world transformed and redeemed in Christ.

Congratulations to the newly confirmed Divinians together with their Godparents and Sponsors.

Juniors-Seniors Promenade: A Night to Remember

JS PROM 2011

THE DWCU TRADITION

Urdaneta City. At the Divine Word College of Urdaneta prom, short for promenade, is a formal (black tie) dance, or gathering of high school students. It is traditionally held during the month of February near the end of junior and/or senior year. It figures greatly in popular culture and is a major event among our high school students. High school juniors attending the prom may call it Junior Prom while high school seniors may call it Senior Prom. In practice this may be a combined junior/senior dance. This school year the JS Prom was celebrated last February 18 the second day of our 44th Foundation Anniversary.

At prom, a Prom Queen and Prom King may be revealed. Other students may be honored with inclusion in a “Prom Court”. Prom Queen and Prom King are honorary titles awarded to students chosen in a school-wide vote prior to the prom. Inclusion in a Prom Court is a reflection of popularity of those chosen and their level of participation in school activities including sports. The selection method for Prom Court is similar to that of Homecoming Queen, King, and Court. Prom Queen and King is an honor usually given to seniors. In addition to Prom Queen and Prom King, juniors may also be honored, but would be called “Prom Prince” or “Prom Princess”.

The British synonym for the North American event would be Leavers’ Ball, Leavers’ Dinner, Formal or, informally, Leavers’ Do. This is closer to the Australian description, although in the UK, some schools have called the above events proms. In Canada, Ireland, and Australia the terms Grad or Formal are most commonly used and the event is usually held for those graduating high school or middle school. In Ireland, the event is also known as the Debs, which is derived from Debutante.

The JS Prom this year commenced with the celebration of the breaking of the bread at 8:00 o’clock in the morning presided by our Campus Minister Fr. Servasius W. Tethun, SVD at the Holy Spirit Chapel. The second part includes the promenade ceremony at 6:00 p.m. at the St. Michael’s Gymnasium with the Grand Entrance by the Seniors and Juniors followed by the spiritual lifting or invocation led by Gidolf B. Cabanilla. Marrion Clem P. Romero rendered the patriotic song followed by the bequeathing of the Key and Mantle of Responsibility featured by Nessie Mae L. Domagas and June Carlo C. Pabaira. Acceptance and Response made humbly by Juline Bianca Barcelona and Princess Ashley S. Tomas. The entrance of the Goddess of Wisdom was quiet spectacular with Katrina Mae C. Miranda together with her escort Christopher F. Patricio. The lighting of the symbolic candle provided a solemn atmosphere of that enigmatic moment leading towards exchanging of mementos thereafter the most awaited FIRST DANCE unfolded the magical moments of teen age life.

The Cotillion De Honor expressed the strong tradition of the Divinians on the dance floor with elegance and style. Fr. President then delivered his inspirational message focused on BEAUTY as a transcendental attribute of being… the beauty that filled the environment that night. Riffcord R-denz M. Tabula and Ma. Linette N. Viray narrated the Batch Will and Testament to the delight of each one. Davi-An O. Tan facilitated the order of the event as Master of Ceremonies.  Truly, for the juniors and seniors…it was a night to remember!
