DLWF Book Club Meeting

Lovers of literature are invited to join the Departamento ng Literatura at Wikang Filipino (DLWF) Book Club on December 12, Tuesday, 1-2:30 p.m. at Java Cafe . The group will talk about Charlson Ong’s novel “An Embarrassment of Riches” (UP Press, 2000), which placed second in the 1998 Centennial Literary Contest. Those who would like to participate in the sharing session may call the DLWF at local 509 for more information.

Art Sale at the Gallery

The DLSU Art Gallery presents the works of two Bulacan artists--Aro Soriano and Astrud Crisologo. Colorful terra-cotta sculpture of Filipino icons such as the jeepney, churches, and even Hinuligang Taktak are on exhibit. Initially done in the eighties by Soriano, La Salle alumnus Crisologo has taken over the marketing of these art pieces.

The Art Sale is at the ground floor of the University Library. For those interested to purchase, simply fill up the sign-up sheet located at the exhibit entrance.

Filing of Tax Exemption

All faculty, administrators, and staff whose tax status have changed within the calendar year (January to December) by virtue of marriage, death, or birth of additional dependents should file with the Accounting Office their revised BIR Form 2305 (Exemption Certificate) on or before December 20. Under the BIR rule, the status of an individual at the end of the calendar year (December) determines his exemption for income tax purposes.

ITC December services

The Information Technology Center’s network connection services (e-mail, internet, dial-up access, etc.) will not be available on December 22 and 23. This is due to the relocation of the server rack and recabling of the computer room at Gokongwei Hall, Room 305.

Lasallians mobilize ALSA-Erap

The Alliance of Lasallians Against ERAP or ALSA-ERAP led the DLSU-Manila community in its mobilization efforts last December 7 at the Malate Church. The activity, coinciding with the opening of the Senate impeachment proceesings, was organized by Manila Archbishop Jaime Cardinal Sin, to commemorate the heroism of our forefathers during the Second World War, and to challenge the people to follow their patriotism and loyalty to the Church.

Institutional Christmas party set

DLSU-Manila will celebrate Christmas as one family on December 22 with the theme “Paskong Lasalyano: Pagkalinga sa Kapwa Tao.” The celebration will gather all sectors to welcome the coming of Christ.

The program will be staged at the Amphitheater and will start at 11:40 a.m. with a performance of excerpts from the Cantata, to be followed by the awarding of the winners of the Christmas card design and the alternative Christmas décor making contests. The community will gather in prayer during the noon Mass. For maximum participation, course card distribution will be suspended at 11:30 a.m. and will resume at 1:40 p.m.

An agape feast will be shared among community members at the Marian Quadrangle. Everyone is encouraged to bring finger food and contribute to the meal for the celebration.

In line with the theme, COSCA will distribute gifts solicited from La Salle to its different adopted communities.
