One hundred forty-one years ago, on this very day – the birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Arnold Janssen founded the Society of the Divine Word – an international religious missionary congregation of priests and brothers.  God gave him a vision and mission to proclaim the Word to all people through the Divine Word Missionaries.  The SVD arrived in the Philippines in the year 1909, They engaged in varied missionary apostolates, one of which is the administration of schools. For them the college is a place of evangelization, thus a place of mission.

As we thank the Lord for giving us the Blessed Virgin Mary as our Mother, let us also thank him for the SVDs, especially the many SVD missionaries who have gone back ahead of us.  They helped us mature in our faith. May this faith move us to action and make God’s love alive in our home, school and community.
