Two Weddings in the Department

2014 seems to be a blessed and fruitful year for the CE Department as two of its faculty members tied the knot in a Catholic wedding this January.
The marriage rites and reception of Engr. Richard De Jesus  and his bride Madz Ascano was held on January 18, 2014 at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Cubao, QC. Engr. De Jesus was formely a part-time teaching faculty and recently joined the department this 3rd term as full time faculty.

Dr. Jonathan River Dungca and Ms. Peachy Inocente were united in the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony on January 31, 2014 at the Our Lady of Carmel Parish Church (Barasoain Church), Malolos, Bulacan. Dr. Dungca is a full-time associate professor of the department. He is presently the External Affairs Director of the Gokongwei College of Engineering, DLSU.

Principal sponsors in Richard's wedding: Dr. Lessandro Garciano & Engr. Ronaldo Gallardo.

PS: Incidentally, in the two weddings, Engr. Ronaldo S. Gallardo, former CE Dept. Chair, is a common "ninong" or principal sponsor. Mano po Ninong! :-)

Congratulations to the newly married couples. 
May you have a fruitful marriage and a happy family.
