The Legazpi Thomasian community welcomed the Advent season by celebrating the annual Paskuhan on December 7, 2018, at the St. Dominic De Guzman grounds. With the theme Mag-ogma, An satuyang Pastor namundag na!, Dominican priests, administrators, teaching and non-teaching personnel, students, alumni, and stakeholders joined the festivity.

Eleven clusters namely Cluster A (Junior High School Department), Cluster B (Senior High School Department), Cluster C (Preschool and Elementary), Cluster D, (CEAFA), Cluster E (CBMA), Cluster F (CHS), Cluster G (CASE, ORA, & GS), Cluster H (Law & OAA ), Cluster I (UST-Legazpi Hospital), Cluster J (OAF), and Cluster K (OUR, ULIS, ORP, OGT, & OSS) filled the open basketball court in front of the St. Thomas Chapel with Pastores dancers and colorful handmade stars for the Star Parade. The 1 foot long star is made from indigenous or biodegradable materials following the color assigned to each cluster. All the groups paraded around the university until they reached the St. Dominic De Guzman grounds where the program was conducted.

The program was started with a Panunuluyan, a traditional re-enactment of Joseph and Maryís search for a suitable place for Mary to give birth to Jesus. All offices were requested to turn off their lights and Mr. Jesus A. Barizo, Ll.B., CSP and Ms. Hazel A. Lobetania, LPT, the emcees for the Paskuhan 2018 program, enjoined everyone to observe a moment of silence to honor the solemnity of the activity. Next, Rev. Fr. Joseph R. Raquid, OP, the university chaplain, led the Blessing of the Advent Wreath. After, the emcees together with the crowd started their countdown for the Lighting of the Christmas Village.

UST-Legazpi Rector and President Rev. Fr. Ernesto M. Arceo, OP, STL, Ph.D., delivered a message to the Legazpi Thomasian community. Afterward, it was followed by the Blessing of the Food and Agape. Native cuisines such as puto bumbong, bibingka, inasal, puto, etc. were served by the clusters in their respective booths.

vThe next highlight was the Christmas Music Video Presentation created by the Office of Media, Alumni, and Public Affairs and some of the first year BA Communication students. The awarding ceremony for the event contests (Pastores dancers, star parade, and native cuisines booth) was conducted after the MV presentation. The first place award for the event contests went to the Junior High. The Senior High earned the second spot and the CHS got the third place. Then, Legazpi Thomasians blasted their night away with the performances of different bands such as the Flaming Hot Cheetos, Darling of the Abyss, Pulang Araw, and the much awaited show of the Orange & Lemons and DJ Cedez of All Good Productions.
