President’s Report

Message to the Graduates of 2018

Congratulations for reaching a milestone in your student life – your graduation! It is truly a cause of celebration and thanksgiving. It is an opportune time to say “thank you” first, to God who is the source of what you have and are, and second, to your parents, teachers, and to all those who have guided and helped you hurdle the learning years, both in and outside the classroom.

While recognizing that your graduation is a milestone, your journey as agents of social transformation outside the borders of your Alma Mater has just begun. Welcome to the real world! Allow me to offer this piece of advice and remind you of the importance of faith and truth to be such agents of positive change: In a world wired to its fingertips and in “a world where truth seems to matter little,” you, each of you, can be a truth teller, a bulwark against lies and fake news, trolls and threats. As graduates of higher learning education, and as alumni of HCDC, you have come of age. You have been “educated in the faith with a passion for the truth, justice, peace and service.” Knowing this brings about practical consequences. Knowledge breeds response-ability. Be the change you want to see. Hold on to your passion for truth. Always be truthful even if others can’t. This is our “real possession in the changing fortunes of time.” May your witness become the word of truth which our world needs so much today.

Guided by our Motto, Ex Fide Ad Veritatem, GO as Christian citizens of this country and “offer yourself passionately and honestly to the great work of renewing our society and helping to build a better world” (Pope Francis’ challenge to the youth).

With you in your journey from Faith to Truth,

Rev. Msgr. Julius C. Rodulfa

2018 Lenten Message

ASH WEDNESDAY begins the great season of Lent, when we are invited to “rend our hearts and not our garments” (JI 2:13) and to “offer to God a sacrifice of a humble and contrite spirit” (Ps 51:19). As we enter into the spirit of the season, it is good to remind ourselves of the truthfulness and honesty that Jesus asks of his followers – one that suggests an almost child-like disposition. A child is spontaneous and free in what he does. In a way, our way of LIVING OUR FAITH should be the same, spontaneous, free, child-like, honest and true. The world must know of our faith and our commitment to it. We must not hide the fact that we follow in the footsteps of Christ. But what Jesus was really warning against was not so much the external manifestations of our faith, but the internal dispositions that lead one to them (Mt 6). What one’s motives and intentions are makes the difference. For Jesus, it is what lies deep in our hearts that is of the greatest importance.

“A still and quiet conscience arises from the knowledge that one has been true to self and to God.”

Rev. Msgr. Julius C. Rodulfa

A Catechesis on the Vision-Mission of Holy Cross of Davao College

No Catholic school can remain catholic without attention to its identity and to the principles that give it its distinctive character.

Instructional Material: A Catechesis on Stewardship

Read in the light of Christ, within the unity of Sacred Scripture and in the living Tradition of the Church, these texts remain the principal sources for catechesis on the mysteries of the “beginning”: creation, fall, and promise of salvation (CCC 289).

Booklet on Integral Evangelization

The year 2011 was the Jubilee Year (60th foundation anniversary) of the Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC). We celebrated the year with the theme: 60 Years of Evangelization with Gratitude and Hope!

A Catechesis on the 60th Diamond Jubillee

The institutional research, Holy Cross of Davao College at 60: Reflection of the Davao Community (2011) recommended that “the entire institution, bound by its role as an evangelizing arm of the Catholic Church, make the school increasingly Catholic in flavor.”

HCDC Maritime Training Center

The Holy Cross of Davao College Maritime Training Center continues to develop and improve the facilities and equipment at its training site in Camudmud, Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS) to provide quality training in the region and aims to offer more training courses in the near future which is of importance to the seafarers specially in Mindanao which comprises 30% of the total population of seafarers in the country.
