ICA Closes its 80th Anniversary

 

 

 

 

In ending the school’s 80th founding anniversary celebration, the Immaculate Conception Academy culminated a year of joyful thanksgiving through an outpouring of passion and God-given talents from its students and the rest of the community.

 

 

On February 3, 2017 the performing arts clubs of the school, namely the Dance Troupe, the Glee Club, the SHARP Gymnastics Club, Hands in Harmony and the Dramatics Guild, collaborated in a production aptly entitled ““Le Rêve: Celebrating the Past, Inspiring the Future”, was held at the Delia Tetreault Arts and Sports Center.

 

Prior to the show, the community participated in a First Friday Mass and Thanksgiving Eucharistic Celebration presided by Monsignor Bong Lo.  The production highlighted key moments in ICA through the years while featuring a variety of performances by the ICAns, including hits like “Go the Distance” from Disney’s Hercules, “I Will Follow Him” from Sister Act, “Seasons of Love” from Rent, “Hall of Fame” by The Script and many more. These select performances, beautifully executed by the various performing arts clubs, celebrated the life and mission of the Mother Foundress, Venerable Delia Tetreault, whose legacy continues through the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Conception Academy, and constantly manifests through the ICA community today.

 

On February 4, 2017, ICA formally closes its celebration with a Eucharistic Celebration concelebrated by Fr. Aristotle Dy, SJ, Fr. Cesar Marin, S.J., Fr. Guy Guibelondo, S.J., Fr. Manny Regalado, LRMS and Msgr. Esteban Lo, LRMS. The guests were feted to a dinner buffet and were serenaded by Hands in Harmony.

 

In both occasions, the MIC Assistant General, Sister Lucie Gagne, MIC graced the events and expressed the MIC’s gratitude to everyone who have become part of ICA from its beginning to the present.

 

It was truly a celebration of the past. The ICA now serves as inspiration for the entire community to move forward and make a difference in the lives of others.

 

Though the 80th founding anniversary of ICA has come to an end, the celebration does not stop, and the spirit of Mother Delia’s dream lives on in the lives of those who have made and continue to make ICA what it is today. (Betina Choa)
