Message from the President

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

Peace!

As you may already know by now, Malacañang has suspended work in all government offices as well as classes in all public schools tomorrow, September 21, 2017.

We at Ateneo de Iloilo - Santa Maria Catholic School shall continue with our classes tomorrow as usual.  We shall also use this day as an opportunity to continue to remember and learn the atrocities of Martial Law perpetuated by the Marcos Regime so that we may know how to prevent them from happening again.  The Social Studies Programs of our GS, JHS and SHS units have prepared various fora for this purpose. I encourage everyone to join and participate in these activities.  

As a Jesuit and Catholic School, let us use this day as an opportunity in exercising our sacred duty and mission to form our students to uphold justice as an integral dimension  and concrete expression of our Christian faith. 

In omnibus amare et servire,

 

Fr. Joseph Y. Haw, S.J.

President 

Ateneo Big Blue Run all set July 23!

ATENEO de Iloilo-Santa Maria Catholic School Alumni Association (AAA) is all set to hold the Ateneo Big Blue Run this Sunday, July 23, 6 a.m., at the Iloilo Megaworld Business Park.

The 5-year-old event offers 3K and 6K running categories. Registration fee of PhP400 (which includes free Ateneo dri-fit shirt) may be processed at the Ateneo Administration building in Atria Park District, San Rafael, Mandurriao, Iloilo City every afternoon. Walk-in runners may register at 5 a.m. in the assembly area on July 23.

“It is open to all sports enthusiasts who would want to sprint to win, jog for a cause, tread with friends—or do all and more,” said organizer and alumna Mary Anne Therese Menchavez, adding “this is our way of igniting our Santa Marian-Atenean spirit through a project that will support further the school’s scholarship program.”

Persons for and with others


(Delivered by Albert Bofill, SHS student of Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS Section 12 Servire, during the weekly SHS Flag Rites held in the school gymnasium, July 10, 2017)

To offer a hand to those in need. To compassionately aid all living things. To show empathy and mercy. Servire, not just selfless service but service that is filled with compassion.

To Father Joseph Haw of the Society of Jesus, our School president, Dr. Herman Lagon, our associate principal, Maam Rosario Dordas, Director for Formation, to the faculty and staff, and to my fellow Ateneans, good morning.

Service. Time and time again we have encountered, or at the very least, have been reminded regarding this concept. May it be through a particular section’s name, the huge kneeling statue in front of Nong Bernard’s impenetrable fortress, or maybe through the beautiful voices of my ever-so talented classmates who just sang the “Prayer for Generosity.” It is clear. There’s no need for an argument. You, you, and even you at the back. We are all no strangers to service.

Ateneo stands up for life; decries EJKs, death penalty

Hundreds of students and faculty of Ateneo de Iloilo-Santa Maria Catholic School wore white shirts and lit their candles Friday night, February 24, to show support to the campaign for life, and to demonstrate opposition to death penalty, extrajudicial killings (EJKs), and other forms of social injustice.

The prayer vigil, aptly held at the eve of the 31st year commemoration of EDSA Revolution, was organized by the High School Student Council. It started in the school gym with a lecture-discussion on human rights facilitated in by representatives from Amnesty International, the world’s biggest human rights organization. This was followed by a prayer service, led by the school chaplain Fr. Ruben Orbeta, SJ, that culminated through rosary prayer march, candle lighting rites and community singing at the school rotunda grounds in front of the statue of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

“Today we hold our lighted candles and pray that God will set our hearts on fire to stand for light, to stand for the truth, to stand for justice, and to stand for life,” Fr. Orbeta said, adding, “there is in our land a cry for vengeance and a move to fill up death rows and kill offenders, but disguised as a call for justice; let true and lasting justice spring forth, and let peace prevail.”
