Mar 15, 2024 | Institutes of Consecrated Life, Fr. Rhoel Gallardo

Quezon City, Philippines. In a vibrant celebration of diversity and cultural richness, the Institute of Consecrated Life in Asia (ICLA) held its annual Intercultural Week from March 4 to 9, 2024, in Quezon City, Philippians. Themed “Intercultural Journey Toward a Synodal Community,” the week-long festivity showcased the beauty of cultural heritage and fostered unity among students, faculty, and staff.

On March 9, 2024, during the culmination day held at the Domingo Moraleda Hall, students, professors, administrative, academic, and residence staff wore traditional costumes. The event allowed the students to showcase their cultural richness through creatively built booths. The exhibits included traditional clothing, agricultural practices, religious traditions, ancient alphabets, monuments, temples, culinary delights, and natural attractions and wonders of various countries.

During the event, each cultural group was given sufficient time to showcase their unique cultural practices in the areas mentioned above. This was followed by a folk dance performance where the performers were dressed in traditional costumes. The event ended with an Agape where everyone shared a common meal consisting of traditional dishes from different countries, which were prepared by the students themselves.
