Macrohon Institute

Macrohon Institute, Incorporated or known as MACI, is a private, non-sectarian, secondary institution located in the Municipality of Macrohon in Southern Leyte, in the Philippines. The aftermath of World War II and of the country's independence from the United States of America, created a zeal and enthusiasm among the people to improve their lives. Realizing that only through a well founded education could this goal be achieved, the families of the township of Macrohon were compelled to send their off springs into the neighboring township of Maasin for a secondary education, it is indeed the only alternative available to them at that time because there is no other place province wide that offers a post elementary education system. Maasin with its two established and prominent educational institutions provided this service. However, the absence of an established road and transportation system made the effort difficult for the families, their students must endure the heat of the sun and waist deep waters of major rivers and streams en route to Maasin every Sunday afternoon and on week's end as they all head home.

Understanding their plight, Mayor Rafael Diola Joven, who himself sends three of his offspring to Maasin, organized a collective effort with the aim of establishing a private high school system in the township of Macrohon. He patiently solicited the support of civic minded individuals from within and outside of the township. With the joint effort of the citizenry of Macrohon as well as of the neighboring townships, Macrohon Institute Incorporated was established on April 4, 1948, it opened its door for business on July 1948. The enrollment totaled to 325 students. Since the commencement of its operations, Macrohon Institute provided a high quality academic and extra curricular instruction, it received an accolade from the Bureau of Education in 1960-1962 in recognition of its achievements in the yearly National Senior High School Proficiency Examination. The school ranked on the upper quartile among all other secondary schools in the entire country. In the field of military training MACI won the annual PMT Tactical Inspection being conducted by the 38th PC Company in 1955-1956 and again in 1965-1966.

At this point, MACI has been the 1st school recipient of the Governor Alfredo K. Bantug Military Trophy Award; the school proved itself by garnering several awards during annual district, regional, national academic and cultural competitions. During its entire length of operation, Macrohon Institute produced high-grade professionals in all fields of specialty. Several individuals are holding high-ranking positions in both private and public institutions in the country and abroad. Macrohon Institute celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1973. A whole week of competitive and colorful festivities marked the occasion. With the financial support of the administration as well as of the student body government, the school's factions namely the Rising Youth of our Country and the Defenders of our Nation competed evenly on academic and athletic events; the celebration indeed drew a deep interest from the public and alumni body as evidenced by a high attendance. As a result, some events were moved into the town's public square.

The year 1973 was marked by two major national curricular innovations. A memorandum from the Bureau of Education and Culture mandated the imposition of National College Entrance Examination for senior high school students. Due to its rigid academic training, Macrohon Institute was assured with a 98% passing rate. High ranking students were indeed able to hurdle additional admission requirements being imposed by top grade colleges and universities of the country. Philippine Military Training for all secondary males, underwent a revision too; the course was renamed Citizen Army Training required the participation of all senior students and exempting the lower year levels. A bourgeoning public school system created a financial difficulty for Macrohon Institute; some families decided to avail of this free education by sending their offsprings into the three public schools of the township which are located in barangays Ichon, Villa Jacinta and San Roque. The successful pavement of the national highway exacerbated the situation.

With its completion in 1988, the transportation system achieved a tremendous improvement. More families are sending their students into the neighboring township of Maasin; as a result, the school's student population plummeted further. With the ouster of the Marcoses on February 25, 1986, the country adopted a new constitution; the new constitution mandated an overhaul of the entire educational system. One of the provisions imposed an allocation of a substantial amount for the funding of private educational entities otherwise known as FAPE, its introduction in 1988 resuscitated MACI's failing financial capability. The school receives an annual grant from the national government amounting to 1.5 million Pesos. Macrohon Institute recovered from these losses as more families enrolled their students into the school system. With a renewed sense of optimism and confidence for the future, Macrohon Institute proudly celebrated its 50th anniversary on April 1998; the school term which ends in the last week of March was moved into the last few days of April in order to accommodate the occasion.

However, due to the public's increasing allegations about the administrator's mismanagement, absence of financial accounting, non-allocation of dividends for the stockholders, a dynastic form of succession involving the management structure, incompetence and sexual exploitation victimizing some of the female students prompted the resignation of the officials of the governing counc

Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry

Baptism and Ministry known as the Lima Document, is an important Christian ecumenical document adopted by members of the World Council of Churches in Lima in January 1982. The document attempted to express the convergences, found over the years, it was sent to six volumes of responses compiled. The approach used in the document has been called ecclesiology of communion by ecumenical theologians, in that the sacraments are presented as a means to achieve greater Church unity; as a result, some churches have changed their liturgical practices, some have entered into discussions, which in turn led to further agreements and steps towards unity. For instance, Protestant churches began to mutually recognize the validity of each other's ministers. Similar agreements in sacramental theology have affected Catholic-Orthodox relations and Catholic-Protestant relations, notably the recognition of Trinitarian baptisms; the question of eucharistic theology is more delicate, given the fact that historic Reformation churches have given no indication that they will recognize the Roman Catholic dogma of transubstantiation, essential to the formation of the Catholic priesthood.
