Vocation Road Tour: Bacolod

Admin

IMG_0546.JPG

Last 26-28 June, Br. Alex Diaz FSC was here in Bacolod City for his Vocation Road Tour. The tour consisted of visiting the different La Salle schools present in the Philippine Sector. Its purpose is to promote the De La Salle Brothers vocation. On his first day, he had a talk at the Gallaga Theater with USLS-IS High School students from the IS Acolytes, the Search-In Core group, and the Student Affairs Council. He shared about his vocation, what it feels like to be a Brother and how he was able to respond to God’s call.

In the afternoon he had a question and answer forum with two selected Grade 11 classes. He also interacted with some selected high school students through the Brew with Bro at the High School Campus Ministry Office. There, he was able to answer questions about the Brothers, which were formed from the curious minds of the young boys who wanted to know more. He also talked about his different experiences as a brother, the steps he took to become a brother, his main ministry work as the National Vocations Promoter, and many other things, hoping to inspire some of the boys present.

In the evening, Br. Alex had a meeting with the Bacolod BACon (Brothers, Aspirants, and Contacts) about his plans and goals in promoting vocations for this year and the following years. True to its famous hospitality, the dinner was hosted by the Vocations Ministry Office at the Moon Café, a Mexican inspired restaurant. After having dinner and sharing stories, the group went to another famous culinary spot, the Calea for dessert.

On the Second day, Br. Alex had a talk with College students from selected RS classes in the morning and in the afternoon. There was also a lunch meeting at the Ledesma Boardroom with the Local Vocation Team (LVT). After Br. Alex’s talk in the afternoon, he went to the Bacolod Brother’s house to again have Brew with Bro with 20 selected College students and Faculty from the IS. There, the students and faculty interacted with the brothers while having a small merienda.

On the third day Br. Alex went to St. Joseph School-La Salle to meet with the newly formed Local Vocation Team and also had conversations with the students.

Last 29 June, for the first time in the Philippine history, the Sector reached fifty Filipino brothers. And hopefully with Br. Alex at the helm and the Vocation Road Tours, fifty is just the beginning. Truly, the Vocation Road Tour serves as an instrument that will help us start to respond to God’s call. It is a chance to consider another option in life and to choose what we really want to do, to be the person we want to be or to be the person that God intended us to be. Let us all help each other in promoting vocations and continue to live Jesus in our hearts forever.

Project FREE: Tarlac

Miguel Ortega

Last 22 June, some 680 teachers from various public schools in the province of Tarlac received their doctorates and masters degrees in the field of education through the Project Flagships to Reach Educational Excellence (Project FREE). The project is an initiative of the Eduardo Cojuangco Foundation and is under the auspices of the University of St. La Salle in cooperation with the Tarlac State University and the local government of the province of Tarlac. Aimed at improving the quality of education through improvements in the education of teachers, the project previously graduated a batch of 780 public school teachers also from Tarlac in June 2013. Faculty from Tarlac State University (TSU) and the University of St. La Salle (USLS) collaborated in mentoring the public school teachers of Tarlac who graduated from this program. 

On hand to witness the graduation rites were project sponsors, Ambassador Eduardo and Mrs. Gretchen Cojuangco; members of the local government of Tarlac led by Gov. Victor Yap and Congressman Henry Cojuangco; USLS officials led by Br. Raymundo Suplido FSC, Dr. Therese Jochico, Vice-Chancellor for Academics and Dr. Elsie Coscolluela, Project FREE Director; and key officials of the Department of Education led by graduation guest speaker, DepEd Secretary, Br. Armin Luistro FSC. 

Tarlac is the second province to have benefitted from Project FREE. The fourth district of Negros Occidental was the first to have benefitted from Project FREE in 2002. The Eduardo Cojuanco Foundation, in cooperation with Br. Gus Boquer, then president of University of St. La Salle in Bacolod, launched the project in Negros Occidental where 1,340 public school teachers were able to earn doctoral and masters degrees in education. Follow-up studies have shown marked improvements in the performance of students in public schools in national exams after their teachers underwent further studies.
