St. Paul University Manila will have the soft launching of its 110th Founding Anniversary Celebration today, 21 June 2021. The theme for this year’s celebration is “In God’s Kairos, Goodness Overflowing.”
The celebration will kick off with a Mass at 9:00 A.M. in the Chapel of the Crucified Christ. We are honored to have Bishop Broderick S. Pabillo, D.D. as our main celebrant. Livestreaming will be via the official Facebook pages of St. Paul University Manila and ONESPCEM.
Truly, our beloved University has come a long way from the fields of Beauce, France.

Today, we also celebrate the 311th Death Anniversary of our holy founder, Fr. Louis Chauvet. This is the day our Superior General chose to hold the congregational tree planting project, dubbed “325 Trees for 325 Years,” to commemorate the 325 years of mission and service of the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres in the world.
As the text of the commemorative plaque says, the tree “parallels the spiritual journey of our congregation from the tiny seed of Levesville, germinating in the heart of Fr. Louis Chauvet, our founder, to a tree widespread and far-flung to various continents—teaching, healing, and touching lives. A symbol of grace, growth, and hope, this tree affirms God’s power to create, redeem, and sustain all of Creation.”
