“Pasalamat” is HCDC’s way of expressing gratitude and thanks to the institution’s mission partners for their unwavering generosity to provide scholarship and support to the youth, especially the poor but academically able and highly motivated students to complete their college education. This is a reaffirmation of the HCDC’s commitment “to promote quality Catholic education to all, especially the less fortunate and to create through dialogue a Christian environment for the integral formation of persons who will be effective agents of social transformation”.
