We congratulate all our graduands for proving to be good soil in which Hekima has sown its seed of Jesuit scholastic pursuit. Their years with us have nurtured this seed through the "4 Cs" (Conscience, Competence, Compassion and Commitment) that form the goal of Jesuit education.
Good and gracious graduands, today's awards ceremony 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 our 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!
Rev. Dr. John Okoria Ibhakewanlan SJ
