UST Angelicum College celebrated its own version of one of the most anticipated festivals in the Philippines—the Flores de Mayo. Themed "Semper Amare Maria—Seeking the Cross; Seeking Jesus," the event was a moving exhibit of talent and artistry held in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mother-daughter pairs from Elementary to Senior High School levels paraded in long, elaborate gowns under arches colorfully decorated.
The activity was also a competition for special awards such as Best Arch, Best Mother-Daughter Pair, and Best in Gown.
The Best Arch was won by Carrie Jolrez Ragonjan and Joana Marie Ragonjan, who represented Reyna de las Flores. The Best Mother-Daughter pair was Isabella Ponce de Leon and Janina Ponce de Leon, who wore matching outfits and presented Reyna Paz. The Best in Gown from the learners was an SHS learner, Maria Socorro Aspe, who characterized Reyna Emperatriz. Lastly, the Best in Gown from the mothers was Ms. Rose Ann Sosa, who portrayed Reyna Elena.
