Archdiocesan Rally against RH BILL
Members of the incoming USA Student Council are proud to facilitate the Youth Forum Rally against RH Bill last March 16, 2012 at the University of San Agustin Gymnasium. The forum was organized by the Commission on Family and Life of the Archdiocese of Jaro and the Citizens for Life in cooperation with the University of San Agustin. Speakers include 1st District Davao City Congressman Karlo Nograles and 2nd District Lanao del Norte Congress-woman Fatima Aliah Dimaporo, along with World Youth Alliance representative Renelyn Tan who clarified issues surrounding the controversial bill and highlighted its negative impact on the youth sector_.

St. Louis Grignon de Montfort once said that “We are all the children of our age. You cannot leave clothes in a smoky room without them taking the smell of smoke. Similarly, by living in an age whose spirit is radically opposed to that of Christ, it is only to be expected that most of us will become tainted by that spirit in one way or another, to a greater or a lesser degree.” As the forces of money, technology and mass media continue to combine and distort the moral fibers of society, what could students like us do to prevent if not minimize further moral & spiritual corruption?
Through prayers, the members of the incoming USA Student Council were inspired to begin working with the noble vision of igniting and sustaining the university’s flame of love for God through Mary. Thus, the “Eternity Airline” project came to life. The mission in doing this project is to uphold the eternal welfare of the community through creativity, apostolic zeal, Christian virtues, active fraternal corrections, solid Catholic doctrines, prayer life, and devotion to Mary.
The project was divided into two (2) phases: 1st Phase: The Eternity Airline Terminal Exhibit (September 5-16, 2011) and the 2nd Phase: The distribution of Eternity Passports (October 3-14, 2011).
The examination of conscience used in the "Eternity Airline Passport" publication has an imprimatur/permission from the Archbishop of Jaro (Msgr. Angel Lagdameo D.D.)
