From Faith to Truth

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.”
