St. Paul University Manila will launch the celebration of its 105th Anniversary with a Concert at the Park at 5:00 P.M., 22 January 2017 in the Open Air Theater, Rizal Park.

The SPC Sisters initially put up a novitiate on a swampy lot in Malate in 1912. The nuns soon made friends with the neighbors, who asked them if they could put up a school so their children could learn the 3Rs and Religion. The Sisters opened a kindergarten, and gradually added a grade school, a high school, eventually a college. The small school, which was named St. Paul Institution, has become St. Paul University Manila.

The Concert at the Park launches the celebration.
