UST JHS celebrates La Naval Mass and Procession
Last October 5, 2016, the Junior High School community celebrated a Novena Mass in honor of our Lady of La Naval de Manila and the Month of the Holy Rosary. Organized by the religious organizations of the Junior High School, it was held at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, commonly known as Santo Domingo Parish, in Quezon Avenue, Quezon City. As expected from the Glee Club and Music Ensemble, they again took on the challenge to use their musical abilities for the said mass.
Chaired by the Junior High School’s regent, Fr. Jannel N. Abogado O.P., the mass lasted for about 1 and a half hours Students are asked to return to the university on or before 11 immediately while regular classes are to be observed in the afternoon.
As part of this celebration, Grade 10 students, Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts Officers, and Citizen Advancement Training (CAdT) Officers also participated in the grand procession on Sunday, October 9. The said march was set to start at 4:00 pm; however, due to some cases it caused nearly a one and a half-hour delay. The procession lasted for approximately 2 hours, with many people coming from the Junior High School body and other departments from the university.
