(Message sent to the San Sebastian Alumni Association – U.S.A./Canada Chapter for their 10th Grand Alumni Reunion in LasVegas, Nevada, U.S.A.)
Rev. Fr. Cristopher C. Maspara, OAR
First and foremost, let me express my warmest congratulations to all of you officers and members of SAN SEBASTIAN ALUMNI ASSOCIATION U.S.A./CANADA CHAPTER for celebrating your 10th Grand Alumni reunion which is slated on September 26-27, 2014 at Las Vegas, Nevada.
Your 10th year of existence as an association, is monumental indeed, a milestone that has triggered achievements in different forms, which I am confident you are so proud of. With this, I wish to share the same pride as SAN SEBASTIAN COLLEGE-RECOLETOS MANILA prepares to observe its 74th Foundation Celebration this coming January 2015.
As we usher in our 75th or Diamond Foundation Celebration, our community endeavors to continuously build a solid family, undivided by boundaries to rejuvenate a spirit towards global competitiveness.
Taking this as a challenge, I am positive that all of us, whose “minds were opened” through the “hearts that were formed” by the Augustinian Recollect values, would take limitless initiative to sustain the institution’s commitment in assuring global quality education, a giant step that can be made realizable by even small but sincere efforts coming from each of us situated in all corners of the globe.
It’s about time that pieces of minds and hearts be in communion with the institution’s vision for the present and future generations. Amidst the local and global challenges, we shall stay forever firm as we herald our winning spirit.
