The Christian Formation Office
About Christian Formation
St. Paul University Quezon City is concerned with the life of faith of every member of the Paulinian family.
A Christian Formation faithful to the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres (SPC), it is designed to help each one know and understand, pray and celebrate, share and serve so as to live their life to the full.
The Christian Formation as “a way life and a process” has specifically defined important areas for us to achieve a really holistic formation that would address the true meaning of our Christian identity of living our life with God forever. We always desire to appreciate and sincerely practice the living out of our Catholic faith in our daily life.
Faithful to the Church’s vision of Catholic School and Catholic Education, and the Mission Statement of Paulinian Education Ministry, the Christian Formation Program upholds the following 3 components: Religious Education Program, Campus Ministry, and Community Extension Services.
Religious Education Program
We undertake to provide students solid instruction in the Catholic Faith presented in 3 dimensions: doctrine, morals, and worship grounded on Sacred Scriptures, Church Teaching and human experience with a definite goal of leading the Paulinians to maturity in their life of faith.
This addresses the spiritual and sacramental needs of the whole SPU Community. It takes charge of the liturgical ministry, retreats and recollections, and Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC) in the campus.
Community Extension Services
We provide Paulinians plenty of opportunities for social immersion and apostolic involvement. Through these community extension services, we assist in the development of people towards self-reliance, empowerment and active participation in promoting the basic welfare of the community.
