Less than a month before the much-awaited Paskuhan season, the Office of the Secretary-General (OSG) released the schedule of the Paskuhan festivities through a circular on Saturday, Nov. 11.

The Paskuhan Mass and Agape, which marks the start of the Paskuhan festivities, will commence on Dec. 13.

This year’s theme will be “Witnessing the joy of Christmas,” according to the OSG’s circular.

Meanwhile, similar to Paskuhan 2022, the Paskuhan concert on Dec. 21 will be exclusive to the University's current students, alumni, teaching, and non-teaching personnel.

According to Secretary-General Fr. Louie Coronel O.P., the University administration decided to limit the Paskuhan festivities, particularly the Agape and Paskuhan concert, to Thomasians in order to ensure security and crowd management.

“We want this to be an event where Thomasians reunite and come home as we close the year,” Fr. Coronel told TomasinoWeb.

During the previous Paskuhan concert, many guests experienced delays in entering the campus grounds due to tightened security measures following the reports of non-Thomasians entering the university during last year's Agape.

To prevent the same situation from occurring again, the OSG assured the Thomasian community that the security protocols have been reviewed and updated for this year [Paskuhan festivities] to balance the need for security and efficient access to the campus.

“A separate memorandum will be released on this matter,” Fr. Coronel added, referring to the updated security guidelines for the Paskuhan 2023 festivities.–with reports from Princess Patricia Lumenario
