LCUP HOLDS CONSOLANIAN FAMILY ROSARY CRUSADE
October 30, 2020
In line with the celebration of the Month of the Holy Rosary, La Consolacion University Philippines conducted the Consolanian Family Rosary Crusade, spearheaded by the Internal Evangelization Program (IEP) Office, October 30, 2020 at Kalinangan Auditorium.
Administrators, academic and academic support personnel assembled at the auditorium to join the prayer to God through Mother Mary. This year’s rosary crusade was devoted for the healing of the world through CoViD-19 pandemic.
For every mystery, an audio-visual presentation of testimonies was showcased. Five people from the LCUP community for five mysteries shared their stories of faith through hardships namely, Mrs. Mercedita Calpacruz – maintenance personnel from the UBMS Office; Ms. Jae Yzabelle Condina – student assistant from Cloister; Sr. Angeline Abando, OSA – Augustinian Sister; Mrs. Rosalia Tayao – Secretary to the BED Principal; and Dr. Ma. Cristina Zulueta – Dean of the College of Medicine and Allied Medical Professions.
At the end of the prayers, Lucinarium was done. This part was comprised of candle lighting and floral offering with the LCUP personnel. When the holy rosary was concluded, a Eucharistic celebration was presided by Most Rev. Fr. Cornelio Jaranilla, OSA and Rev. Fr. Alexander Boli, OSA.
Moreover, prior to the said activity, daily mass and daily rosary were held for the entire month. Each day, there were sponsor families/ communities assigned to pray the holy rosary. Weekdays were assigned for certain institutional departments/ units while weekends were alloted to families/communities of the LCUP personnel. The prayers of the holy rosary were pre-recorded and aired live in the LCUP Facebook page during a certain schedule. The live airing of the said activity was accomplished in coordination with the Marketing and Promotions Office.
The said culminating activity is being held annually, but this year is a different experience because students – whom were the yearly participants are not present, however, the goal of celebrating the month of holy rosary to get closer and reflect with the community and the Church still remained intact.
