"Itong bulaklak na alay ng aming pagsintang tunay, palitan mo, O Birheng Mahal ng tuwa sa kalangitan"

As the month of May concludes, the University celebrated two momentous events - a Grand Floral Offering dubbed "Flores de Maria, Patapos" to close the commemoration of Flores de Mayo or Flowers of May and the first anniversary of the Chapel of Our Lady of Consolation on May 31, 2022, at the Chapel of Our Lady of Consolation, La Consolacion University Philippines, Catmon, City of Malolos, Bulacan.

In the liturgical calendar, the month of May is dedicated to Mary, the Blessed Virgin Mother. This celebration, being called Flores de Mayo (Flowers of May) or Flores de Maria (Flowers of Mary), is a Roman Catholic tradition wherein every day for the whole month of May, chosen ladies called Hermanas lead the town and devotedly offer flowers at the foot of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This celebration is not just a custom observed in barangays but in Catholic institutions as well. Read More ...
