In honor of the 67th anniversary of the Union Day of Myanmar, we celebrated the Myanmar Cultural Mass at the Institute for Consecrated Life in Asia (ICLA) on 15th February, 2014. We celebrated the Cultural Mass with the intentions of peace, tranquility, and prosperity in Myanmar.
During the Mass we presented our cultural dances and our cultural way of liturgy.
We ended our celebration with dinner serving Myanmar foods.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Fr. Samuel Canilang (CMF), Director of ICLA, and all the professors, and each and every one who participated in the celebration. Your support and contributions, your physical presence brought us encouragement and unforgettable memories for our Community (ICLA). We do believe that because of the family spirit of ICLA our celebration was a success.
We are hoping that this celebration introduced some of our Myanmar Cultural realities such as lifestyle, dance, liturgy, and food.
May the good Lord bless you all and our ICLA family.
ICLA has recently received a bus from MIVA-Austria. We thank DKA-Austria and Most Rev. Honesto F. Ongtioco, DD, Bishop of Cubao for their endorsment of the Institute's request. The bus will transport the students for their outdoor activities, necessary for their academic and formative processes, such as immersion in different Philippine situations and educational trips.
The Institute for Consecrated Life in Asia (ICLA) is a center for doing theology to revitalize sprituality and mission in emergent churches, particularly in Asia.
