A morning Eucharistic Celebration and Human Lasallian Star formation highlighted the Closing Centennial Celebration of Lasallian Presence in the Philippines at the University of St. La Salle on June 15.
A strong army of more than 2000 participants composed of administrators, students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni formed the Human Star at the football field.
The historic formation was seen worldwide via the internet through UStream.tv
The Lasallian Star, also known as the Star of Faith, is a symbol for civility, scientific pursuit, humanitarianism, service oriented goals and benevolence.
“This is a celebration of our heritage, tradition, solidarity and a celebration of our Animo spirit,” Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Marie Therese Jochico said.
Prior to the star formation, a short program that summarized the total amount raised from the Centennial Grand Raffle Draw was held.
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Mission and Development revealed that the Lasallian schools were able to raise a net of P6 million for the One La Salle Scholarship Fund.
During the same program, the Lasallian community also renewed their commitment to support Project Carbon Neutral, an environmental initiative being undertaken by all 17 La Salle Schools in the country.
“We still continue to support Project Carbon Neutral even after our Centennial Year. This is a lifelong commitment for our environment,” PCN Champ Tita Doza shared.
As the centennial year culminated, USLS will continue the festivities as it is poised to celebrate its Diamond Jubilee Year this July.
