October Devotion, a month-long celebration giving honor to Mother Mary as the Lady of the Most Holy Rosary and traditionally remembered in Jesuit schools in the Philippines, was closed in the Living Rosary held at the High School Covered Courts on October 24, 2014.
Literally, the Living Rosary formation was composed of individual persons serving as symbolic beads and reciting the Rosary’s prayers. High School boys and girls alternately formed the decades of the Rosary as selected members of the faculty and staff served as large beads marking the start of each mystery.
In time for the days of remembering the saints and the souls, the High School community graced the Requiem Mass (Mass for the Dead) held on November 7, 2014. The same Eucharistic service was in honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, another traditional devotion in Jesuit schools.
A symbolic sanctuary was symbolically placed fronting the altar. It contained the names of the departed loved ones of the students, administrators, faculty and staff of the High School community.
