One of the most important things that we must always remember as we go through life is to live and abide by the holy scriptures of God. This serves as a blueprint of our destiny and judgment. As a long-lived tradition, the DWCU community held a weeklong celebration to participate and support the National Bible Week together with the commemoration of Saints who were called to be an instrument of God’s kindness, goodness, mercy and compassion – Saint Arnold Janssen and Saint Joseph Freinademetz. The event started on the 18th day of January, 2016 and lasted on the 22nd day of the same month. Students were gathered to carry their Bibles and a tarpaulin with a printed verse from the Holy Book as they went through a parade among selected routes. After the Bible parade last January 18, students were told to stay within the walls of their classroom to share their thoughts about a given verse form the Holy Book and spread the goodness of God relating their experiences as they were guided by their teachers, which persisted until the 22nd day of January. The celebration had the theme, “Like Saint Arnold Janssen and Saint Joseph Freinademetz, We are Called to be Missionaries of Mercy and Compassion.”

In line with the celebration was the birthday of Rev. Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD the DWCU President last January 22, 2016. In the afternoon of that same day, the DWCU Family and Personnel held their Fit and Faith Formation to enjoy which was another way for them to strengthen their faith, health and solidarity.
