As you all know guys that a earthquake hit Bohol at 8:12 am at October 15, 2013. The earthquake was about 7.2 magnitude which is really strong. But, Even if we weren’t there, please think about them for a moment and pray and hope that they may be safe. Also, some of the ruin in Bohol like churches were ruined because of the earthquake. Now, these places are now destroyed. So, I hope that we could help these people regain there lives back to normal.

As you all know guys, we have lots of exciting events this October but, I think the one you guy will like the most Halloween. Here all kids grab there candy bags, go from house to house and tell the neighbor” Trick or Treat” and the neighbor give them candy. And they also dress up as their favorite person like Iron Man, Superman, Batman, etc. and if you look around houses, some of them make those creepy designs and you will think this is very scary and later there might be popping props like skeletons. And in most toy stores, you will also see Halloween costumes you may like and some kids even have props like axes with blood or masks that our creepy so watch out. I think this year, we will have a fun Halloween. So good luck in candy hunting.
“Trick or Treat”

In the Month of October, besides having the rosary, we also have literacy month. Where teacher dress up as characters from books like Greek Mythology,etc. But there are also fun activities you can do. In our grade ( grade 6) are activities our listen and eat, quiz bee on Greek Mythology and a essay writing contest and grade 5 also have the same activities. So to all Xaverian, Have a happy literacy month.
During the month of October, We celebrate the Month of the Rosary. Pope Pius V instituted this because of a war they one against Muslim Fleets and in 1883 Pope Leo XIII officially declared The Month of October to the Holy Rosary. You can celebrate this by praying the rosary everyday and do it with all your heart.

As we all know that there is a war right now in Zamboanga and Syria. People have been evacuated already because of gun shots and bombs being deployed to the city. And they do not know yet when the war will stop so we should also pray for these people so the can be strengthened and do not lose faith of their lives. So I encourage you to pray everyday for these people so everyone will be in peace and there will be no more wars between country’s or in a country.
Bible Passage for People in Syria and Zamboanga: Philippians 4:13:” I can do all things through him who strengthens me”.

In September 25, We had our Service Interaction in Tahanan Walang Hagdanan. At first, I though that it will be boring because the people there were in wheelchair and they couldn’t walk. But, when I went there and got to know them better and saw what they can do. I felt amazed of what they can do. They could race with there wheelchair and they can play basketball while in there wheelchair. And They also do some work like packing the medicine and making woodcraft and making wheelchairs. And they also have a gift shop where you can buy there products. After this experience, I think that this people are still needed to be taking cared of because even if they can’t walk, they can still do there daily activities. And I hope we can come back there next year or some other year because it is very fun and exciting there. And I hope you can also go here, I guarantee you that you will have a fun time.
