PRESENTS AND PRESENCE ON MISSION DAY

Around 460 faculty members, administrators, staff, and student representatives headed to a coastal area, to a Gawad Kalinga Aeta community and to other on-campus outreach venues for the University President’s Day turned Mission Day in celebration of our beloved president’s birthday last June 10.


Led by the University President, Dr. Luis Maria R. Calingo, who joined the batch going to a coastal parish -- Holy Rosary in Bulacus, Masantol, Pampanga, the first set of Holy Angel University (HAU) volunteers were welcomed by the Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Jobert Villacorte, former HAU Chaplain, along with Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) officers and 50 families. Painting of school buildings, games for children, conduct of medical check-up, soup kitchen, and distribution of household items and school supplies comprised an activity-filled day. Each family was also given a solar lantern that they could use in fishing and in their household.


The second batch of volunteers went to a Gawad Kalinga community in Bamban, Tarlac comprised mostly of indigenous people. Outreach efforts in the area were similar to that of Masantol, Pampangapa.


Simultaneous with the Masantol and Tarlac mission day events, on-campus outreach activities were also facilitated by volunteer HAU employees serving the invited street children, the homeless, senior citizens, and single parents. Activities included games, gift giving, and blood pressure screening.


Mission day is meant to further the University's core value of community and societal responsibility.
