A CELEBRATION IN HONOR OF THE NATIVITY OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER

September 8 was a very special day for Immaculate Conception Academy, Greenhills. On this day, ICA, a Marian school, celebrated the Nativity of Our Blessed Mother where the High School Department organized a number of activities.

 

Mr. Mark King Ampis and Ms. Jessica Reyes started the day’s events by leading the Reflective Rosary Prayer over the Public Announcement (PA) System. After the Rosary Prayer, the students in their respective classrooms created a Marian Puzzle which included prayer intentions and petitions to Mama Mary. The students’ output were offered by the class presidents during the Eucharistic Celebration.

 

The AGAPE gave the students an opportunity to have a time of community fellowship as they shared their meal with their classmates and teachers. To promote simplicity and encourage Chinese inculturation, the students only brought pancit, bread, spread and juice. 

 

What better way to celebrate the Blessed Mother but to hold mass in her honor. The Eucharistic celebration was presided by Fr. Japs Apun. In his homily, he mentioned the importance of Contemplation, Conversion and Communion in sharing in the mission of Christ through Mary. 

 

The afternoon was also filled with festivity as some students, faculty and invited guests shared their faith and talents during the program held at the Delia Tetrault Arts and Sports Center (DTASC). Christine Yang of 7- Unity performed a spoken word poem in honor of Our Blessed Mother while Ms. Zarina Tanghal serenaded our Lady with the song "Sa Ugoy ng Duyan".  An inspiring talk from Fr. Arnaldo Ursua Crisostomo, NDV enlightened the students on the “Role of Mary in the Communion of Communities.”

 

The event was brought to a close with a Marian song performed by Ms. Mary Grace Domagas, Ms. Ethel Dulatre, Ms. Keische Enciso, Ms. May Versoza and Ms. Natasha Navarro and an action song entitled "Called to Love". 

 

It was a fun-filled and meaningful day indeed for the High School Department as they offered all their energy, talents and fruits of their reflection to our Blessed Mother.
