In fidelity to the school’s vision-mission, and being one with the poor enjoying the love of the same Father, the Committee on Reach Out Program (CROP) enhances and deepens the dynamic involvement of the school community in responding to the thrust of PCP II to be the church of the poor.
It also provides opportunities to all members of the Canossa Educative Community to have active involvement in being in solidarity with the poor through different outreach activities. The Alay Pag-ibig Center was organized in 1985 in response to the emerging needs of the poor in the locality.
Inspired by St. Magdalene of Canossa, our Mother Foundress, the school extends material and non-material assistance to our less fortunate brothers and sisters through varied activities such as literacy programs, medical assistance, income generating projects, skills training along with the integral Christian formation that enhances the dignity of the person and improves the quality of life.
Specifically, the APC aims to:
- explore more creative ways of responding to the emerging needs and to be visibly on the side of the poor.
- strengthen the integral formation of the young, especially stressing love and compassion for the poor.
- intensify the empowerment of the lay partners in ‘ministering to, with, by and for the poor Donation Form (click here to download the form)
