Six Angelites namely, Nikkson C. Cayanan, Chandrelle David, Trisha Llanos, Jasmine Rose D. Manansala, John Aaron M. Saripe, and Snyrraha Nicolle Anna L. Torres from the School of Business and Accountancy (SBA) and School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) are to present their research entitled, “San Guillermo Church and the Filipino Life: Faith and Filipino Resiliency through the Lens of Big History” at the International Big History Association via Zoom on August 20, 2022.
Their main goal is “to highlight the history of San Guillermo Parish Church and how it has been a significant factor in forming our identity as resilient and faithful Kapampangans,” as per the words of the research team leader, Nikkson C. Cayanan.
Their team, which is composed of incoming second-year college students, wants to show that the intangibility of faith can also come in the form of concrete artifacts, such as a church.
Furthermore, Cayanan said that his team had a smooth ride in conducting their research but admitted there was pressure on them to present at the association.
“To be tasked with presenting to an international audience is no easy feat. So, we feel that it is our responsibility to ensure that the presentation will be substantial and insightful. However, with the support of our adviser, Ma’am Rubeth Ronquillo-Hipolito, we’ve also learned to enjoy the experience and have fun,” Cayanan stated.
The International Big History Association recognizes the interlinkages of various aspects of life while piecing narratives of the history of our universe with empirical data and verified artifacts. Moreover, it renders different nationalities a platform to exhibit subjects significant to their culture in order to provide awareness of their collective purpose.
