PSHS-BRC welcomes Ina

To continue the yearly tradition of Pagsungko ni Ina, a procession and a Holy Mass was held on September 7, 2016 in welcoming Inang Peñafrancia  and Divino Rostro to Philippine Science High School - Bicol Region Campus (PSHS-BRC).

Priests and elders were present in the gathering as part of the Voyadores, a group composed of devotees of Ina. They were greeted by the PSHS-BRC family inside the school auditorium which was tainted with white and yellow motif.

When asked about his experience, Sam Francis Namata (Grade 9-Beryllium) said, "Naging worth it yung experience ko kasi yun nga, baguhan ako sa Pisay. Sinasalubong din namin si Ina sa dati kong school pero mas naramdaman ko siya ngayon kasi Campus Ministry din ako, [at] member ng Days with the Lord [kaya] nakatulong din ako sa preparation para sa celebration."

[My experience was worth it beng a new student in Pisay. We used to celebrate Ina in my previous school but I appreciated it more this year because I am a member of the Campus Ministry and Days with the Lord that’s why I was able to help in organizing the celebration.]
"It was great. I was able to witness what people normally do during the traditional Pagsungko. Ina is the Patron Saint of Bicol and I had the chance to see her and praise her for all the blessings I was given," Rhoanne Miranda, a Grade 7 student shared.

After the Holy Mass, a novena was conducted as part of the custom in celebrating Peñafrancia Festival. The said event was spearheaded by Days With the Lord, moderated by its Adviser, Mr. Vencci Conde.
