October 5, 2019 marked the homecoming of Batch ’79. On their 40th year, the Claretians gathered to “Renew Friendships, Relive Memories and Revisit Traditions”.
With the batch President, Mr. Ferdinand Sibal, the Claretians assembled at the School AVR during which they shared updates about each other.. A new batch president, General Salvador Mison, Jr., was elected thereafter.
As they went around the campus, members of Batch ’79 reminisced the years when they were in Claret. After the tour, the alumni proceeded to the Heart of Mary Chapel for the celebration of the Mass which was presided by their batchmate, Fr. Ricardo Sta. Cruz.
Fr. Santiago Gonzalez, CMF, who was the School Director when Batch ’79 graduated, was delighted to see the batch gathered at Mass. Fr. Mauricio Ulep, CMF and other members of the School Community and even some retired faculty and staff were also present to join the Claretians during the Mass.
The batch culminated their fellowship at Microtel UP Technohub.
