CSTP under ORA spearheads Sinagoga 5: Misyon
by CSTP Team
SINAGOGA is a Bicol word for Synagogue which means gathering or assembly. The Jews used to gather themselves in the synagogue to pray, to listen and to study the word of God and of the prophets.
For the past 4 years, the Center for Religious Education (CREED) and Community Service Training Program (CSTP) have been gathering together to engage in relevant activities and meaningful rituals to cap the academic year – a veritable “sinagoga”. As the classroom discussion brew in RE 102 (Christology), and God’s word is contextualized in CSTP, the Sinagoga emerges as an essential opportunity for students to apply doctrine and theories that they have encountered.
Born in 2008 as a Sinakulo presentation conceptualized by the CREED, this annual fair eventually became a joint activity with CSTP, evolving into what is now called Sinagoga. Its short history runs as follows:
2008 – Sinakulo
2009 – Sinagoga I: “An Pitong Huring Tataramon”
2010 – Sinagoga II: “Pano, Nuarin, Kiisay Mapuon an Pagbabago”
2011 – Sinagoga III: “The Ritual Bath of the Santo Interiero”.
For the first time, CSTP spearheads Sinagoga this year. Inspired by the teachings of St. Dominic, the offices of CSTP and Religious Education believe that the time has come to depict the life of the Father of the Order of Preachers, as he is seen by contemporary students, enmeshed in their own respective communities. They see Dominic as the bearer of the Light of Good News casting out the darkness of their present world.
In the story, five Aquinian students pick up the torch of Dominic and follow his call. The four pillars of the Dominican Order (Prayer, Study, Preaching and Mission) are inevitable in the various situations that confront the students who awaken their friends’ consciousness to the issues of poverty and its place in the Good News. The response of the people takes shape in community organizing, mobilization and unity-building.
This ambitious production is animated by the AQ ORA through CSTP, CREED and the Anduyog Volunteers. The Production team is composed of 27 first year students. Ildefonso Maldo III provides the sound and music. Alvin Macinas facilitates the movements.
It was shown on March 9, 2012, 6:00pm at the AQ Dome attended by the NSTP 2 and RE 102 students, faculty members, visitors from partner institutions, parents of the performers and the invited students and faculty members from Divine Word College of Legazpi, Southern Luzon Technology Institute, Ago Medical and Educational Center and Bicol University College of Social Sciences and Philosophy.
The Finale Song, “Buhay na Tagumpay” challenges every AQuinian to do his part in following St. Dominic’s experience and living God’s words in communion with the community.
“BUHAY na TAGUMPAY”
Sindihan ang sulo sa ating bayan
Ang liwanag sa gitna ng kahirapan
Dadamhin ang buhay kasama si Kristo
Susundan ang yapak ni Sto.Domingo
Mag-aaral nang may karunungan at kakayahan
Magdarasal nang may kapayapaan
Ang ebanghelyo ay isabuhay
Sa komunidad makikipamuhay
maglingkod sa bayan
para sa buhay, katotohanan
Sa mga katutubo at mangingisda
Sa mga propesyonal, at manggagawa
Taong simbahan at kabataan at sa mga magsasaka
Labanan ang pang-aapi
Magandang balita ang ibahagi
Katarungan ay iwagayway
Sa buhay na tagumpay
