The Faculty of Philosophy is hosting Alexandria Day 2021, with a three-part activity aiming to pay homage to the University’s secondary patroness, Saint Catherine of Alexandria. On November 25, 2021 (Thursday), the Faculty of Philosophy will be holding a Mass to be presided over by the Vice-Rector of the Central Seminary, fr. Napoleon B. Sipalay, Jr., O.P., MBA, at 8 a.m. This will be followed by the Blessing of the Statue of St. Catherine of Alexandria in the Seminary garden. The rites will be presided over by fr. Roland D. Mactal, O.P., SThD.
A webinar will follow the two events. To deliver a lecture on the topic “Owls under the Sun and a Broken Wheel: The Ecclesiastical Faculty of Philosophy through the Years” is fr. Hilario V. Sicat, Jr., O.P., while fr. Jesus M. Miranda, Jr., O.P., PhD will share his insights on the topic “The Impact of Philosophy to a Self-Integrated Education in the Virtual Community.”
All these events will be streamed live on the Facebook Pages of the University and the UST Ecclesiastical Faculties. In the afternoon, a private viewing of the St. Catherine of Alexandria Documentary will be done via Zoom.
