La Salle shares Christmas blessing with the needy

The Center for Social Concern and Action (COSCA) will lead the Lasallian distribution of goods to the needy as part of DLSU-Manila’s Christmas sharing. On December 22, 2 p.m., COSCA will extend goods to the patients of the Cancer Institute and the Pediatric Ward of the Philippine General Hospital. It will also visit the Bahay Kalinga for Elders on the same day. Lasallians interested to join in the outreach activities can contact the office at locals 417/147 for details.

Former President Corazon Aquino

PRAYER VIGIL AT LA SALLE. Former Philippine President Corazon Aquino talks before the Lassallians after leading the community in prayer forthe ouster of President Joseph Estrada. See related story here.

Last week, COSCA also led the community in distributing Christmas gifts to workers of its partner communities. It also distributed gifts to the Mapalad farmers of Sumilao, Bukidnon, with the assistance of the Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC).

The Christmas sharing projects complement the Lasallian Christmas celebration which will commence with the Institutional Christmas Party on December 22, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. These initiatives fit aptly the theme “Paskong Lasalyano: Pagkalinga sa Kapwa Tao.” The celebration will be a gathering of all sectors—faculty, students, co-academic personnel, administrators, and all other members of the academic community to commemorate as one family the coming of Christ.

At 11:30 a.m., a performance of excerpts from the Cantata will be held, to be followed by a Mass at 12 noon. Both activities will be held at the Amphitheater. The SPS Choir, DLSU Chorale, Faculty-Staff Chorale, Chamber Ensemble, and the Pops Orchestra will render musical performances in the program.

The community will proceed to the Marian Quadrangle for a mini salo-salo. Lasallians are encouraged to donate food to be shared by community members in the agape feast. Those who are interested to donate food or drinks can contact Rissa Merritt of the Office of Student Activities at locals 732/730, or call Sonia Casabuena of the Office of Vice President for Academics at locals 108/109.

Meanwhile, COSCA and the ROTC distributed goods to inmates of the National Bilibid Prisons last week. On December 21, it will join the Office of Career Services in giving gifts to the Aeta community in Pampanga.
