AY 2019– 2020
The Catholic School
A. Religion as Core of the Curriculum (RCC)
In the Catholic school’s educational project there is no separation between time for learning and time for formation. between acquiring notions and growing in wisdom (The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium, No.14).
As an integral part of evangelization, catechesis aims “to make men’s faith become living, conscious, and active, through the light of instructions”. It studies the mystery of Christ in all its dimensions so that people are not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy with Jesus Christ.” Thus, “catechesis is nothing other than the process of transmitting the Gospel, as Christian community has received it, understand it, celebrate it, lives it and communicates it in many ways” (New National Catechetical Directory for Philippines, No. 102).
The Center for Christian Formation of the School provides religious education and it processes the experience, knowledge and shares the Christian Spirituality in the light of evangelization of the students and employees as well.

2. Opening and Recruitment of Munting Disipulo Club
The purpose of this program is to fundamentally continue the mission of Jesus Christ; to establish and strengthen the youth’s relationship with Christ; to provide programs that are not only appealing to the young but are also rooted in the Word and in the tradition of the Church; so that the students could apply their knowledge coming from the Scriptures and involvement in the life of the Church particularly in His Liturgy and His Sacraments; and to deepen every young person’s relationship with Jesus Christ.
The CL/VE teachers will have a room to room encounter and invitation to the students to be part of the Munting Disipulo club. The students, who are interested to become one, will be signing a form.
Every day the Munting Disipulo grew in number, up until the second semester of the school year, for the Munting Disipulo Club does not exclude students who wanted to join the club, because this might be their chance to and strengthen the “youth’s relationship with Christ”.
The meeting is scheduled every second Wednesday of the month per club.

Balajadia on what is Vocation, and next to it was presentation of saints per section the students were truly astonishing and like a real life saints as they walk into the stage and as we hear the story of whom they portray.
The festival won’t be complete if the booths aren’t there. Each organization of Munting Disipulo had their own booth, Karaoke Booth for BCC Choir, Jail Booth for Ministry of Altar Servers, and Marriage Booth for Lectors and commentators. The participants which are the students wear different colors of shirt depending on their status, yellow for single, pink for single blessedness, blue for discerning, red if you’re in a relationship, violet if it’s complicated, and black if you are taken for granted.

10. Bible Trivia
The basic call is for every Filipino to honor the Bible by reading, studying and living its precepts. This challenge, however, has been stepped up and now calls on all Bible-believing Filipino to proclaim God’s Word and to profess their faith. These times call for boldness and determination, for concerted and deliberate actin to draw our people back to God and his Word if we are to impact the whole nation for good.
In Binangonan Catholic College we are celebrating National Bible Week by having it as Bible Trivia, that every week, we post one question per year level and the students will by the ticket and they will write the correct answer on the space provided. It will be collected by their CL Teachers and the raffle draw will be every Fridays of January, before class.
11. Advent-Christmas Season
Based on the result of the evaluation, it is a good start to celebrate the advent season with this kind of activity, which helped the students to remember the true meaning of waiting. For some suggestions, the students are telling that it should have a little entertainment. One of the opportunity mentioned was “Bringing God in my life”, it may show that some of our students awaits this kind of spiritual activity. And this activity should flourish.

The Stations of the Cross are representations of the path Jesus bore on his way to the crucifixion. They involve Jesus enduring suffering, insults, moments of support, and relay the intense sacrifice that Christians believe Jesus undertook for human salvation.
The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or the Via Crucis, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. Commonly, a series of 14 images will be arranged in numbered order along a path and the faithful travel from image to image, in order, stopping at each station to say the selected prayers and reflections. This will be done individually or in a procession most commonly during Lent, especially on Good Friday, in a spirit of reparation for the sufferings and insults that Jesus endured during his passion.

Catechetical Life: The Teacher in the Catholic School
Let teachers recognize that the Catholic school depends upon them almost entirely for the accomplishment of its goals and programs. They should therefore be very carefully prepared so that both in secular and religious knowledge they are equipped with suitable qualifications and also with a pedagogical skill that is in keeping with the findings of the contemporary world (Gravissimum Edcationis No. 8 & 3).
Catholic Teachers, regardless of subjects they teach, are the best shapers of authentic Catholic worldview. Day in and day out they interact with the students or pupils in a classroom or outside, “in season or out of season.”
Top priority must therefore begin to their ongoing integral evangelization formation program which touches and influences their spiritual, professional, and communal development and formation. In particular, the Religion teachers must get the best academic and professional training, integrated formation, and renewal.
At the same time, all other faculty members will have to go through similar integral evangelization formation programs so that they become not only effective witness but also value formations of their students.
