Indoor Facilities

Thank you very much for your request to use the Pontificio Collegio Filippino facilities. You are most welcome to our humble abode. To help us maintain our home, kindly note the following, in coordination with your Collegio contact person.

 

  1. Email to the Collegio the following information:
    • DATE (Sundays, outside exam period only): __________
    • TIME (7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. only): __________
    • COMMUNITY COORDINATOR: __________
      cel no: __________
    • CONTACT PERSON: __________
      cel no.: __________
    • IN CHARGE OF CARE FOR FACILITIES: __________
      cel no.: __________
    • MASS CELEBRANT: __________
    • PROGRAM SCHEDULE: __________
  2. Access to the Collegio
    • You may come as early as 7:30 a.m. on the day of the activity to decorate the venue, but not between 8:00-8:45 a.m. as there is a Mass and no one will open the doors for you.
      (Decorating the day before is not possible, as the priests still use the hall.)
    • Since we do not have a porter outside work hours, kindly ask at least two of your own community members to be ready to open the gate and the lobby glass door whenever other members come (ask your Collegio contact person how to do these). Keep the gates and doors closed whenever no one enters – do not leave them open for long (especially the entrance glass doors during winter, to save on heating costs).
    • Guests may access the Main Chapel and lobby. All other areas are reserved for the Collegio residents: the left and right corridors, and up or down the elevator and stairs.
  3. Presentations
    • Please be discerning in your presentations (song, dance, plays, jokes, dress, etc.), so that they would be uplifting; please refrain from whatever could be considered as improper, such as those that might hurt some people or groups, are indecent, etc.
    • Please avoid excessive noise (loud music, conversations, singing, etc.) before 9:00 a.m., when the priests are praying.
    • Considering that the Collegio priests need to pray, study and rest, kindly have the premises brought back to order towards 5:00 p.m. and vacated by 6:00 p.m.
  4. Kindly assign someone in charge of care for facilities
    • Note the furniture’s original position before setting up (taking pictures), so they can be returned exactly the way they were before your activity. This person should also be the one to direct the others in putting back the furniture as well.
    • Please do not transfer the piano, as it goes out of tune when moved.
    • Be creative in setting up your decors, but without using tapes (even the non-sticky type), tacks, paints, glues, nails, etc., or any other material attached to the walls, posts, picture frames, tables or other furniture or fixture. You may, for example, hang them on existing nails, bring stands, or put them on the floor or chairs (again, w/o tapes or pins).
    • Keep chairs, sofas, tables, decors, speakers, props, sports equipment, etc. away from walls, to avoid scratching them.
    • Please bring cleaning materials (Collegio does not supply them), such as wiping cloths, mop & pail, floor detergents, broom & dustpan, plastic garbage bags, etc.
  5. After using the facilities, please:
    • Return all furniture to their original positions, as directed by the person assigned to be in charge of care for facilities.
    • Bring home all your decors, equipment, etc.
    • Pick up any trash, wipe all wet or dirty surfaces, and mop the floors (including toilets).
    • Replace garbage bins’ plastic bags with fresh ones.
    • Please do not leave any trash inside the Collegio. Garbage bins are located a few meters to the right as you exit the Collegio gate. It is illegal and extremely dangerous to cross the road with your garbage; the Collegio is not responsible for any accident or damage caused by such actions (e.g., if a bag is dropped or some contents fall, causing a vehicular or motorcycle accident, and injuries and death).

Once again, our gratitude, and welcome to the Collegio!
