“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Heb 6:10
The Ateneo Student Catholic Action directs the growth of its members towards service for others based on faith and ideals, the Filipino spirit, and the pursuit of truth through liberal education. AtSCA aims to form responsive and Christ-centered individuals possessing leadership qualities whose actions are grounded on a holistic development in terms of spiritual formation and integration with the poor.
An AtSCAn should be fully formed in the three pillars, namely, Community Apostolate, Ignatian Spirituality, and Social Action. He/she should possess a compassionate heart for the marginalized, live a life of prayer and discernment, and respond to the urgent call for social justice.
More than that, AtSCA can also be your home where you can let your heart rest. Everyone treats each other as family, so no one will ever be alone in AtSCA. So what are you waiting for? Come home to AtSCA
