Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Catholics around the world celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception today, December 8, 9 months before the nativity of Mary which is celebrated on September 8. As defined in the Catholic Doctrine, "Mary was preserved exempt from all stain (macula) of original sin at the first moment of her animation, and sanctifying grace was given to her before sin could have taken effect in her soul."

Students of Colegio de Santa Ana celebrated the mass in honor of the Immaculate Conception yesterday, December 7, at the CDSA Gymnasium presided by School Director Rev. Fr. Amando Litana.

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is a Holy Day of Obligation. CDSA celebrated the mass yesterday because there are no classes today, as Taguig City is also celebrating its cityhood on this day.

Living Rosary 2011

The Living Rosary is an annual activity of the CL Department and the CIE Department for the month of October. October is the month of the Holy Rosary, and for this year, Filipinos are encouraged to pray the rosary every day up to May 31, 2012 for world peace (A Million Roses for the World).

A presentation is showcased between mysteries, and for every "Our Father" and "Hail Mary" a balloon is tied to form a rosary. Doves were released and the balloon-rosary is set free after the prayers. It is always a heart-warming spectacle.
