St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, was a fervent devotee of the Blessed Virgin Mary. His first act after his conversion was to offer his sword signifying his offering of self to Our Lady of Monserrat.
The Blessed Virgin Mary is the patroness of Sacred Heart School- Ateneo de Cebu. To show our love for her, Ateneo Hearters are encouraged to carry a rosary in our pockets all the time. Our love for the color blue reminds us of our prayer: Mary for you, for your white and blue. We pray you’ll keep us, Mary, constantly true, we pray you’ll keep us Mary faithful to you.
Thus, feasts and celebrations in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary are especially significant for all Ateneo Hearters. On Friday, September 8, we shall celebrate the birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Collections from Hinabang ko, Halad kang Maria will be offered during the mass.
Hinabang ko, Halad kang Maria is our annual campaign to raise funds for people who need medical assistance and victims of calamities. The funds are our gift in honor of Mama Mary’s birthday
