Ne­po­mu­ceno with a mass wedding for some of its em­ploy­ees and main­te­nance staff at the Holy Rosary Parish Church and a Holy Mass at the HAU Chapel of the Holy Guardian An­gel, presided by Arch­bish­opEmer­i­tus Pa­ciano Aniceto. HAU Pres­i­dent Dr. Luis Maria Calingo de­liv­ered a mes­sage fol­lowed by a re­sponse from the Ne­po­mu­ceno Fam­ily given by Dr. Peter J. Ne­po­mu­ceno.

The mass wedding, a part of the Univer­sity's fam­ily wel­fare, was cospon­sored by the Cam­pus Min­istry Of­fice (which took care of flow­ers and gift cer­tifi­cates for the new­ly­weds), the Hu­man Re­source Of­fice (which pro­vided all suits and wedding dresses cour­tesy of cou­turier Rich Sabinian), the School of Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment (which prepared the wedding cakes), the Of­fice of Com­mu­nity Ex­ten­sion Ser­vices (which sponsored the cords, veils and meals), Of­fice of Stu­dent Af­fairs (which pro­vided the events or­ga­niz­ers, namely, Wil­liam Ba­nal and team), Mar­ket­ing Of­fice (which took care of the pho­tos and video cov­er­age), Mo­tor­pool Of­fice (which pro­vided trans­porta­tion), and the Lab­o­ra­tory El­e­men­tary School which pro­vided pupils cos­tumed as an­gels for the wedding march.

HAU Chap­lain Fr. Jayson Mi­randa and guest priest Fr. Howell Suarez (an HAU alum­nus) con­cel­e­brated the Mass with the Arch­bishop-Emer­i­tus.

The new­ly­wed cou­ples are Joerun and Criselda Mer­cado, Jayson and Mar­nelli Va­len­cia, Ed­ward and Bang­ielyn Ga­cu­tan, Rigo and Jo­ce­lyn Mon­temayor, and Leonardo and Ar­lyn Ram os.

The Ne­po­mu­ceno Fam­ily also for­mally opened an ex­hibit on the life and legacy of Juan and Teresa Ne­po­mu­ceno and the pi­o­neer HAU stu­dents Javier Ne­po­mu­ceno and Fran­cisca Vil­lanueva, both cu­rated by Alex Cas­tro of the Cen­ter for Ka­pam­pan­gan Stud­ies.

In a video­taped performance shown dur­ing the re­cep­tion, Leo Valdes, Don Juan's grand­son and direc­tor of the Univer­sity's In­ter­na­tional Af­fairs Of­fice, im­per­son­ated his grand­fa­ther giv­ing a mes­sage in Ka­pam­pan­gan.

"The Ne­po­mu­ceno Fam­ily would like to thank the Univer­sity for mark­ing the cen­te­nary of Don Juan and Dona Teresa's wedding with a cel­e­bra­tion of the sacra­ment of mat­ri­mony," Dr. Peter Ne­po­mu­ceno said in an in­ter­view af­ter the cer­e­monies. ( HAU)
