be remembered and honored at the launching of the CHIMES Award
at the Augusto-Rosario Gonzalez Theater at the College of
St. Benilde on June 26.
A Eucharistic celebration at 11 a.m. will open the event,
to be led by Father Ferdinand Guiang, with a homily to be
given by DLSU System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC.

embodied the CHIMES characteristics. In his lifetime, Tañada
showed concern for the common good, reflected and upheld honesty

long and fulfilling life of devotion to his family and public
service, deserves to be repeatedly resounded to enrich lives
