BACOLOD City – Athletes from Western Visayas are expected to double their efforts to snatch the championship title from Central Visayas in next year’s National Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) Meet.

Roger Banzuela, the region’s sports technical director, said they will “make some adjustments in its sports program and events to make up with its third place finish this year.”

The 2014 National PRISAA will be held in April in Tagum City in Southern Mindanao – the fourth placer in this year’s competition.

Western Visayas settled for third place in the over-all ranking of the recently concluded National PRISAA in Lingayen, Pangasinan with 61 gold, 60 silver and 86 bronze medals.

But it was adjudged champion in secondary division with 46 gold, 26 silver and 13 bronze medals.

The region’s women athletes ruled in athletics, volleyball, chess, table tennis, taekwondo, and vocal solo, while men dominated the football and badminton.

Central Visayas defended its championship title by harvesting 77 gold, 50 silver and 29 bronze medals. CALABARZON became its closest rival with 68 gold, 30 silver and 49 bronze medals. (PNA)

He recalled how "Operation Bojingka" of foreign terrorists from the Middle East planning to assassinate Pope John Paul during his visit in the Philippines in the 1970s, was timely discovered and aborted.  Read more...

The power of prayer

ASK, AND you will receive. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened to you. For the one who asks, receives. The one who seeks, finds. The one who knocks, enters. If you, with all your sins, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to anyone who asks him!  Read more...

“Silent night! Holy night! Guiding star, lend thy light!” – J. MOIER

Finding our anchor

December 23,2014 01:02 AM

By: Fr. Roy Cimagala

NO matter how dynamic our life may be, we somehow know that we need an anchor. We just cannot go on with our life without a purpose, without some knowledge of where we come from or what life is all about. We just cannot be too open to anything without some principles to guide us, some norms and criteria to follow. Read more...
