Combined with faith and sincerity of heart, this endeavor was made possible through the collaborative efforts of everyone in the school that faithfully supported this activity through the initiative of Sr. Patricia Anna T. Aragon F.I., RCA, and the Pastoral Team.

The faculty, staff, maintenance personnel with the sisters in the community were grouped and assigned to a specific time starting from 6:00 am till 7:30 on the evening of August 21, 2020, the day before the Feast of the Queenship of Mary.

Each segment started with preliminary prayers, including the 5 decades of the Holy Rosary, consecration prayers, pre-set petitions centering on COVID 19, and the mid-afternoon devotional prayer such as the 3 o’clock prayer.

Praying the 2000 Hail Marys, as one educative community and bringing about the truest sense of piety and love for our Almighty God and our beloved Mother Mary, truly, brings the power of prayer beyond description.
