Law College orients new studes

An Orientation Program was held at San Sebastian College – Recoletos Manila Bar Review Center for the new Law students, new religious and lay administrators, College of Law faculty, staff and parents with this year’s theme: Boosting Academic Spiritual Life thru RecollecT Education. It began with the celebration of the mass with Rev. Fr.

During this mass, Pope Francis, pointing at Jesus on the cross said: “Look at that person. Always remember that the cross is a symbol for us, Catholics, about the existence of God.

He also mentioned that: “Sometimes, we are also being misled because they are giving us wrong information. In the legal court, they appreciate same sex marriage. But, the truth should always be based on the bible, not based on human truth.” After the mass, the orientation...
