Benedictine Sr. Mary John Mananzan and La Salle Brother Armin Luistro have been chosen for the 2022 Pro Deo Et Patria Award from the country’s largest association of Catholic schools.

The recognition is the highest award presented by the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines to those “who manifest an exemplary attitude of love for God and country”.

The award, according to CEAP, is also given to those who displayed “faithfulness to Catholic teachings as part of service to God”.

Sr. Mananzan was cited by Women Deliver as one of the 100 inspiring persons in the world on the occasion of the 100 years of the International Women’s Day celebration in March 2011.

Currently, she is the Vice-President for External Affairs of St. Scholastica’s College.

Br. Luistro was recently elected as the 28th Superior General of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, the first Filipino to hold such office.

He also served as the Secretary of the Department of Education from 2010 to the year 2016.

The awarding ceremony will be on Oct. 26, the first day of the 2022 CEAP National Convention with the theme “Pilgrims of Hope: Moving Forward in Synodality”.
