Mapúa kicks off Christmas celebration and supports local cause with its third Paskong Mapúan
Mapúa University is once again taking the fun and excitement of the Christmas season online as it officially begins its three-day Paskong Mapúan 2021 celebration today, December 15. With the theme “Iisa sa Pag-Ibig at Pag-Asa.”
On the first day, the members of the Central Student Council will be holding the podcast “The Cardinal Insider.” They will share various success stories as students this year with the goal to portray the fulfilling and rewarding life of a Mapúan. Also, part of the merry making is the Mapúa Bingo Night for students and employees, another opportunity for the entire Mapúa community to have fun and interact with one another virtually and to win cash prizes. Both activities will be streamed live at www.facebook.com/MapuaCSC at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively.
The second day will have two of the major highlights of the celebration beginning with the Mapúa Cardinal Singers’ “Mapúan Festival of Lessons and Carols,” a mini concert to relive the story of the Birth of Jesus Christ along with the singing of Christmas carols at 6 p.m.
The concert will be followed by the grand Caroling Video Contest to be participated by Mapúa students, faculty, and staff members. Winners will receive cash prizes, while their chosen local beneficiaries will also receive cash donations.
A Photo Liking Competition is also open to students featuring entries showing what they are grateful for despite challenging situations. Winners of the competition will receive cash prizes.
On the last day of celebration, a Holy Mass will be held at the University’s Saint Rita Chapel at 10 a.m.
The PASKOncert will close the holiday festivities with performances by local bands and artists as guest performers. Students will also be given the chance to win gadgets and cash prizes in the grand raffle.
