USLS lights Christmas decor

The University of St. La Salle  in Bacolod City began the Christmas season with the Institutional Christmas Lighting  on November 29, a  USLS press release said.

“While we are thankful of our blessings as a community, may we remember and use the Yuletide season to extend our help to those in need,”Br. Raymundo Suplido, USLS president and chancellor, said.

This year’s theme is “Bringing the Lasallian Light of Hope this Christmas” which was dedicated to the Typhoon Yolanda victims, the press release said.

A welcome address  was given by  Director Rhoderick Samonte  of the Center for External Relations and  a procession that  started at the Gazebo Park  and  stretched to Handumanan Park, St. La Salle Coliseum lobby, Gates 1 and 2 façades, and the Garden of St. Francis of Assisi followed.

Brief Christmas messages were given by Integrated School OIC-Principal Doris Dumaran, Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs Dr. Marie Therese Jochico, VC for Mission and Development Geoffrey Bob Bergante, VC for Administration Br. Antonio Servando, VC for Finance Dr. Jocelyn Aragon, and Suplido at each site.

The La Salle Chorale  sang“Light of a Million Mornings”,with the Operasyon Yolanda Relief Operations slideshow,  followed by a candle lighting tribute.

Christmas carols were sung by the CELAM praisers and the chorale; and a  Christmas show by the Culture and Arts Program scholars ended the institutional lighting.

The Jubilee Mural painted by Roderick Macutay to commemorate the 61 years of Lasallian presence in Negros Occidental was also unveiled.*
