CICM FRIENDSHIP MEET

The CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae or Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) Schools Friendship Meet was born in 2007 in consequence of a proposal passed by the CICM-Provincial Committee on Education (CICM-PCE), intending all CICM schools in the Philippines to convene; therefore, willingly approved by the erstwhile CICM Provincial Superior, Fr. Romeo Nimez, and his Provincial Government.

The said occasion is conducted every two years and is hosted by a designated CICM school where all participants come by. To foster excellence, healthy competition and relation among the CICM schools, sports, musical, academic, and socio-cultural events are organized.


One Mission, One Journey

Cirilo R. Parallag Jr. – Lyrics
Joshua Benedict A. Cabalonga – Melody


I.
Leaps and bounds
Our difference resounds
Near and far
Our distances bar!

II.
Yet, our mission is to love
Our mission is to serve
Our mission is to build
And this makes us ONE

CHORUS:
"Cor unum et anima una"
One heart, One Soul
We share the same journey
We are CICM, in mind and body!

III.
Christ sets the example
On how to share the Father's love to all
Our unity is our strength and force
To serve where we are called

IV.
Here and there, we come together
To celebrate our roots, our friendship and charism
Amidst distance and cultural diversity
CICM is one in purpose
CICM unites for a cause!

CHORUS
