Rooted in the theme, “Pamilyang Paulino: Isang Biyaya Ngayong Pasko,” the annual Christmas celebration of St. Paul University Manila, more popularly known as Paskong Paulinian, exemplified the five Paulinian Core Values: charity, charism, community, commitment to mission, and Christ-centeredness, through its gift-giving project, the Paulinian Voice, and Christmas Tree Making Competition, on December 8, 2016 at the University quadrangle.

This year’s Paskuhan introduced the Grant A Wish Project. The project aimed to grant the simple wishes of the maintenance staff of SPU Manila, as well as those of some indigent people. Most of the wishes were grocery packages and some appliances from Paulinian Santas.

The College of Music and the Performing Arts and College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences’ entry in the Christmas Tree Making Competition won the first prize, with the College of Education as second. The College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Business and Management ranked third.

The much-awaited Paulinian Voice Sing-Offs Round was also part of the Paskuhan. Three talents from each team battled for the spot in the finals in January 2017. Moving on to the finals are Team Luc’s Nicole Conquilla, Team Jed’s Jade Asilum, Team Niah’s Yvette Baldovino, and Team Icon’s Abisajac Casimero.
