Mission Week at Villanova College is an annual event that is taking place in 2023 from Monday 22 May. It is a week-long initiative designed to celebrate our partnerships formed with Augustinian schools and ministries in the Philippines. Mission Week fosters a sense of social responsibility and increases awareness of how we can contribute and make difference in the lives of others. Throughout the week, a series of activities and events are organized to engage the students and promote awareness and encourage action in both local and global projects. These initiatives aim to inspire students to make a positive impact in their community and develop a lifelong commitment to service.
