Education

One third of confreres work in educational institutions, because it is one of the priority of our province. We runs three schools: University of San Carlos (USC) in Cebu City, Holy Name University (HNU) in Tagbilaran City, Bohol and Liceo del Verbo Divino (LVD) in Tacloban City, Leyte.

“Inteligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

At the most we had one-tenth of the necessary funds on hand when we started construction of our buildings. We had trust in God when we begun the work and have completed it the same way... work with courage and trust in the Lord! He will not abandon you. St. Arnold Janssen
