Every runner, a promoter. Every promoter, a winner.

Aspiring to strengthen spiritual learning and deepen awareness on vacation, Bridgetines joined the fun run for vocation spearheaded by Lipa Archdiocesan Commission on Vaocation (LACOV), held at Batangas Provincial Community Park to Most Holy Trinity Parish, Batangas City, July 30.

The marathon started at around five in the morning and was followed by the awarding ceremony.

“Vocation is one of the most important words that we must understand. If you know that you have the call, then do not be afraid. It is the blessing that must not be taken for granted. Embrace it. Feel it. Pursue it. That call came from God, so grab it. That would lead to the fulfillment of your life,” affirmed Msgr. Rafael Oriondo, Parish Priest of the Most Holy Trinity, in his homily.

The celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist ended the event.

Daop-Palad Student Council (DPSC) officers and the major and minor club presidents represented the college department in the activity.
