On behalf of HUC, I congratulate all our recent graduates and welcome them into the Jesuit alumni family.
Dear graduates, you have proven to be good soil in which Hekima has sown its seed of Jesuit scholastic pursuit. Your years with us have nurtured this seed through the "4 Cs" (Conscience, Competence, Compassion and Commitment) that form the goal of Jesuit education.
The awards ceremony over the weekend is only a symbolic acknowledgement of your growth in the "4Cs".
As you go forth from us, be confident that you are greatly equipped with the relevant skills and competencies for the life ahead. Whether you eventually pluck attractive fruits off the job trees, or you become fruitfully engaged in religious/social ministry, yours will be the future. On you will the human society come to depend. Therefore, remember that all you receive in life is for the service of God and others – especially the poor.
Farewell, as we look forward to inviting many of you to work with us in the future.
Cheers and God bless you all!
