Sacred Heart College, the oldest Catholic institution for men and women in Quezon Province, Philippines, was founded on April 27, 1884. The school had its roots in the vision of a simple and saintly woman named Hermana Fausta Labrador who, at the age of 26, opened a Charity school to form the youth according to the ideals of the Catholic faith. Hermana Fausta’s zeal to sow the seeds of Christian values was based on the deep love for the less privileged. Having been trained and molded by the Daughters of Charity at the Colegio de Santa Rosa, she later decided to leave her school in the hands of the Daughters of Charity in the twilight handed over to the Sisters on August 14, 1937.
Today, Sacred Heart College is committed to empowering communities of learners into Vincentian leaders and advocates of persons in poverty situations and of God’s creation.
The College contacted us wanting to share some of the reflections of their alumni. Their team of Vincentian Formators felt they were worth sharing because they contain stories of growth in Vincentian Spirituality.
Here is a sample from Jaira Gliane, Marillac Grantee at the College:
