Rev. Fr. Orlando B. Cantillon requested the school personnel to join the Eucharistic Celebration of Pope Francis at Quirino Grandstand last January 18, 2015.  Twenty one school personnel took courage to conquer the rain and the cold just to have a glimpse of Pope Francis.  
As early as 9:30, the school personnel assembled at the school’s quadrangle.  At ten o’clock, they boarded two private vans, left the school treading C5, EDSA, and Roxas Blvd. towards CCP finding ideal spot for parking.  Despite continuous drizzle, these school personnel walked towards Luneta with the hope of finding a spot to hear the Eucharistic Celebration of Pope Francis.  However, due to tremendous pilgrims flocking the streets, most of them decided to find the most available spot where the Pope was expected to pass by.  Some were lucky to squeeze themselves through the crowd towards the barriers in the middle aisle, while others content themselves hanging on the fences.
It was really a rewarding and awesome experience having the chance to see the Pope on his way towards Luneta and back.  All colds, shivering, and other discomforts were gone after having a very short glimpse of the Holy Father.  
Thank you Ms. Rodylyn Meñoza, Ms. Gina Bagtas, Ms. Maria Imelda Balabat, Mr. Christian Santos, Mrs. Helen Aquino, Mrs. Susana Nahag, Ms. Maria Lucia Cruz, Ms. Norida Manginsay, Mrs. Maria Lourdes Solinap, Mrs. Ma.

Nenette Rogel for braving the invitation.  
May God bless us and the school!
