THE SILVERS: REFLECTING ON THE VELADA!

At Home to Give bACk

Annalee Ventura-Carpio, AC HS Class of 1997

One day after the event ended, students of Batch 1997 relish in a post-Velada ocean of photos, videos, social media tags, and great feedback. Smiles all around as we relive yesterday and see the Assumption Tart, red plaid fan, and other loot we collected from our home away from home. But what does one consider home?

Homily: Old Girls Day Mass

Reflecting: Walking with St. Eugenie

Homily: Old Girls Day Mass

The homily of Fr. Luis Lorenzo, LC, delivered during the Old Girls Day Mass in the morning of October 16, 2022, was beautiful. It touched the soul and many teared while listening to him.

Annalee Ventura-Carpio

To educate is to transform the world. Among St. Marie Eugenie’s quotes, this one hugs my heart most tightly.

AAA Club-bing

Cooking it up with Chef J Gamboa

By Ana de Villa Singson

Milky Way is the favorite meeting place for Velada conferences and reunions while Cirkulo, Tzujiri and Azuthai, all part of the family-owned chain of restaurants, have cult followings. It’s no wonder that when we announced that the culinary wiz behind all these restos, Chef J Gamboa, would be the featured chef of the AAA Cooking and Baking Club, the registration list quickly turned mile long.

ORGANIZE YOUR WAY TO SPARK JOY! TIDY UP! KONMARI STYLE!

By Ana de Villa Singson

When things are hard to find, when you can’t breathe in a very crowded and cluttered room, when you are wasting valuable time looking for things which just aren’t where they are supposed to be…IT’S TIME TO ORGARNIZE!

Organizing can be a daunting task…it’s like trying to fit in an elephant into a refrigerator!  We needed an expert!  And so..the AAA ORGANIZING CLUB called in Christine Dichao, the first New York-certified Konmari consultant in the Philippines; one who is much in demand for corporate and even personal consultations. A familiar face in  the  corporate workshop circuit, Christine very generously shared time and conducted 3 sessions for the AAA ORGANIZING CLUB.

REFLECTING…WALKING WITH ST. MARIE EUGENIE

Last weekend, our batch recorded our Velada video as Ruby Jubilarians of 2022. This is the 4th time we’ve celebrated our Velada, and every time we do, I see and feel this favorite quote from St Marie Eugenie, LOVE NEVER SAYS I HAVE DONE ENOUGH, in each and everyone of us. The bonding and caring flows out so naturally and sincerely. Whether in Manila or in different parts of the world, online and on-site, from planning to practices to performing to fundraising and donating, everyone puts pause on their daily routines, and shares their time, talents and treasures to live by our batch motto, Quid retribuam Domino? What thanks can I render Thee, Lord?

HONORING ST. MARIE EUGENIE

5 Assumptionists do France in search of a saint

Rare book traces the footsteps of foundress Saint Marie Eugénie—and serves as guide to a culture, art, even food and shopping experience.

The best way to discover a saint is to follow in her footsteps. That was what five optimistic explorers undertook one spring day in Paris, alive with the hope of attaining their mission: to come to know and be familiar with their beloved foundress, Saint Marie Eugénie of Jesus. It was a mission they had not anticipated. They hadn’t started with a plan. But as if guided by unseen influences, they found themselves being led on a journey.
