THE FACULTY of Arts and Letters kicked off its 106th foundation day with a mass celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop of Manila Msgr. Socrates Villegas last Feb. 11 at the Santissimo Rosario Chapel.

In his homily, Bishop Villegas enumerated three keys in order to achieve the peace the nation is longing for – simplicity of heart, serenity of spirit, and silence of mind.

The celebration was highlighted by a “Fishball Festival” at the Tinoko Park and an acoustic presentation at the Colayco Park.

Meanwhile, sophomore students Wilfred Ritona and Rigor Pascual ruled the debate contest “Clash of the Titans” sponsored by the AB Student Council.

In the “In Control” speech festival, Behavioral Science student Joyce Vallar won the oratorical contest while Asian Studies student Lilac Rañeses won the interpretative reading category. Ritona also won in the impromptu contest.

During the week, alternative classes were also held on martial arts, speech, and debate. Billy Joe I. Allardo
