LCUP OBSERVES LENTEN SEASON 2022

April 14, 2022

When the third month of the year approached the liturgical calendar, the University held an array of spiritual activities in observance of the Lenten Season, which started on March 2 to April 14, 2022.

On March 1, a Holy Mass and the Rite of Sunog Sala or Shrove Tuesday was conducted. In preparation for the Ash Wednesday, palm leaves from the previous Lent, which were brought to the campus by some personnel, were burned to ashes and blessed during the said ceremony. The following day, March 2, the Rite of Imposition of Ashes or Ash Wednesday occurred. The usual smearing of ashes on the forehead was slightly adjusted to the sprinkling of ashes on the top of the head due to the restrictions of COVID-19. Both ceremonies were initiated by Rev. Fr. Bong Sabangan and were participated by reporting LCUP personnel. Read More ...

Remembering the journey of our Savior Jesus Christ to the cross, the University observed Via Crucis at the University Chapel Garden from March 7 to April 8. In this culminating activity, offices were assigned a particular schedule to sponsor the mass early in the morning and lead the prayers in the 14 Stations of the Cross in the afternoon. On March 11, office transactions were temporarily halted to reflect, fast, and give penance through a Personnel Lenten Recollection, which commenced with the Way of the Cross or Station of the Cross, wherein stations were installed and decorated in designated spots inside the campus prior to the activity. It was then followed by Penitential Service, Eucharistic Adoration, and Confession. In the afternoon, a meaningful discussion led by Fr. Kirth Stephen Buluran was witnessed by the LCUP community and concluded with a Celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Traversing to the Holy Week, the Office of the Vice President for Spiritual Formation and Extension - (MRBOP) Unit, in collaboration with the Municipality of Calumpit, organized a Via Crucis sa Ilog Angat or fluvial Station of the Cross on April 12. The Via Crucis sa Ilog aims to dedicate the prayers of the Stations of the Cross to ask forgiveness from God for the harms inflicted on the river and all the life forms therein. Moreover, for the multiplication of life in the said body of water, 40,000 Tilapia fingerlings were scattered. These fingerlings were produced through donations from LCUP personnel, students, and alumni. The celebration of the Holy Eucharist commenced the Via Crucis Sa Ilog Angat in Santo Nio Parish, Calumpit, Bulacan, at 6:30 in the morning. The Mass was presided by the Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Jose Roland Colendrino. After the Mass, participants proceeded to the boats and started the fluvial Stations of the Cross. The prayer of the Stations of the Cross ended in the Diocesan Shrine and Parish of St. John the Baptist in Poblacion, Calumpit Bulacan.
