DWCU Hits 2017 With A 4 in 1 Treat

img_20170120_093139-2Time and again, we are celebrating the goodness of life. The Divinian community is not yet an inch to its golden jubilee celebration but rigorous preparations have been made and done. January is a usual entry point for every year among us but for the Divinians, an unusual productive one. With the advent of peace, camaraderie, discipline and unity, we are hitting so many birds with one stone in our community: the National Bible Week Celebration, the Feast Day of Saints Arnold Janssen and Joseph Freinademetz, the 61st birthday of Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD and the upcoming most beautiful day in the universe.

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 will be holding 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 with a Eucharistic celebration earlier this day and with the theme, “The Word was made Flesh.” It was immediately followed by the special presentations of the students from the different departments. Their performance became a proof of God’s gift of openness, willingness and conviction in working and acting freely on their dreams. It is also upon showcasing their talents and skills to Rev. Fr. Gil T. Manalo as he celebrates his 61st birthday that will be happening on the 22nd of January 2017. Rev. Fr. Gil T. Manalo, the DWCU President also delivered a deep sense of gratitude to all those who are in one way or another in helping the community to achieve and provide a more comfortable gymnasium and event center. In behalf of the DWCU community, he left a heartwarming message especially to the Parents-Teachers Association Members and Officers, DWCU Alumni, DWCU Faculty and Personnel, and more importantly to the students. He proudly presented to the DWCU members the newly installed big ceiling fan at St. Michael’s Gymnasium. He also reiterated something about the future of DWCU in anticipating a widely

and lasting success towards its golden years of proclaiming the word and empowering lives saying, “Through the collaborative efforts and collective responsibility of our members as a Divinian community, we respond to the needs of spreading the good news to the world. Through the spirit of togetherness, we build a communion of humanity which is full of respect, understanding, compassion and love with our common faith.”

The month of January also gives us a glimpse of what will surely happen for the National Bible Week especially as the students will be gathered to carry their Bibles and a tarpaulin with a printed verse from the holy book. They will be having a walk through among selected routes in Brgy. Bayaoas, Urdaneta City. After the Bible parade, various simultaneous activities will happen within the walls of the DWCU community. These activities will be spearheaded by the students as they share their thoughts, participation and creativity about a character from the holy book and spread the goodness of God with their fruitful experiences. The National Bible Week will hit the calendar from January 23 – 27, 2017. The celebration will have the theme, “The Bible: The Hope for the Community’s Progress.” We encourage you to join us and be a part of our holistic journey as a tool to empower and enrich lives with interconnectedness and interdependency representing Jesus Christ as a mirror of hope, freedom and goodness.
