WU-P holds thanksgiving, wreath-laying, boodle fight

February 11, 2019

“Wesleyan University-Philippines is a boulevard of Christian innovation”. These were the words of inspiration of Bishop, Pedro M. Torio Jr., Bishop of the Baguio Episcopal Area, as the guest speaker during the thanksgiving service at the beginning of Wesleyan 73rd Founding Anniversary celebration.

OIC President Arnel T. Panuyas also gave his message to the Wesleyan community. “The lord will continue to bless all of us because we are doing our responsibilities and duties with our best”, he said.

The traditional wreath-laying ceremonies to honor John Wesley, Father of Methodism, followed the thanksgiving service. Students, faculty, and staff unleashed green and yellow balloons to signal the start of the 6-day celebration.

A Boodle Fight where WU-P administration, faculty and staff with their bare hands feasted together on a local delicacy of inihaw and rice, followed the wreath-laying ceremonies. The groups with the best food presentation and after-care won prizes. They are:
