De La Salle University Dasmariñas

De La Salle University-Dasmarinas is one with the entire nation in welcoming His Holiness Pope Francis in a very rare, blessed opportunity as he visits the country from January 15-19, 2015.

The VCMEAA, Dr. Ramos, in her memo wrote that " the best way to welcome the Pope is to focus our gaze upon the Lord, the Good Shepherd, who challenges us to always renew ourselves to be worthy of Him..." The Pope's apostolic visit seeks to extend the essence of "mercy and compassion" particularly in certain venues in Leyte and Metro Manila.

Members of the community are asked by the Br. President to join the nation through prayer/reflection or physical presence in the Papal visit. All are encouraged to partake in the activities of his visit, most importantly, the mass to be held on the 18th at the Rizal Park. An official delegation of students will be sent together with the rest of the Lasallian schools in the youth's exclusive encounter with the Pope on January 17 at the University of Sto. Tomas.

The Papal Visit is an embodiment of the Lord's love for us, the Filipino people, which brings our nation to be even closer and more grateful to our God.
