La Consolacion

The University, through its Basic Education Department, in coordination with the Integral Evangelization Program Office and the Crisis Management Committee, held a face-to-face First Confession and First Communion ceremonies for both Grade 3 and Grade 4 students on March 19 and March 25, 2022, respectively at Our Lady of Consolation Chapel, La Consolacion University Philippines - Catmon Campus.

Since the global pandemic struck in the year 2020, culminating activities for students have also halted due to the learning adjustments implemented by the academic industry. With the full cooperation of parents and BED teachers, the said activity was conducted after two years but with strict adherence to the University's COVID-19 prevention, mitigation, and control protocols. Forty-two grade 3 and 4 pupils participated and experienced their first confession and communion. Read More ...

A drive-through confession was held in preparation for the first communion. Parents accompanied their children on their way to the confessional while campus ministers and teachers guided the students inside the University chapel for their prayers of penance. The First Confession or the Sacrament of Reconciliation should be taken first before the First Communion, for children should receive the grace of forgiveness and repentance before receiving the body of Christ.

A Eucharistic Celebration presided by Rev. Fr. Ramon Sabangan was held for 42 first communicants to receive the Eucharist. The University Administrators, Basic Education Department teachers, and LCUP Community of Sisters also attended the said ceremony. After the ceremony, a class photo was taken, wherein a strict implementation of social distancing was observed. Hide
