On December 8, 2016, the ERDA Tech community honored the Blessed Virgin Mary through a mass celebrated by Fr. Irmo Francis Valeza, SJ.
A few years back, Fr. Valeza, who was still a seminarian at that time, was among three brothers assigned to ERDA Tech. He taught Basic Christian Living (BCL) and facilitated Campus Ministry activities together with Brother Manny Amanence and Brother Tonton Coloma.
May the school community learn from the good example set by Mother Mary. Her faith and patience are indeed very important values and virtues needed in today’s world where materialism, consumerism, and advances in technology exert great influence on our lives.
