2019 GENERAL ALUMNI HOMECOMING
Age of Aquarius Theme of HomecomingDate: February 12, 2019Posted by: Marionette Martinez
More than 300 Paulinians from different batches, many coming from abroad, trooped to St. Paul Manila on 27 January 2019 for the General Alumni Homecoming, with the theme, “Reliving Dreams: Peace, Love, Harmony, and Understanding,” borrowed from the Age of Aquarius.
Host batch was the High School Golden Jubilarians, Class of 1969. Other jubilarian batches were grade school, high school, and college 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, and 1989.
The event started with registration at 2:00 P.M., followed by Mass in the Chapel of the Crucified Christ, with live streaming in the Founders Hall for those who preferred not to go up to the chapel. Batch picture taking of jubilarians at the chapel steps followed, and soon after, fellowship and renewal of friendships, dinner, and program.
Sr. Evangeline Anastacio, SPC, St. Paul University Manila President, and Mrs. Sherry Lara-Alingod, SPMAFI President, gave their welcome remarks. High School 1969 paid tribute to their classmate, Maniya “Honey” Barredo, world renowned Prima Ballerina. The jubilarian classes presented dance numbers from the 1960s. Raffle of prizes also enlivened the program. Towards the end of the evening, Mrs. Patsy Santiago-Schultz and Ms. Marilyn Abalos, Co-Chairs of St. Paul Manila Alumnae USA, presented their donations to the school and to the SPMAFI.
