SBLAA Chairman Atty. Avelino V. Cruz celebrates 70th birthday; Renews commitment to propagate the life teachings and works of St. Benedict

Atty. Avelino Cruz, Chairman of the San Beda Law Alumni Association and founding partner of the ACCRA law firm, celebrated a milestone event as he turned 70, last December 17, 2010
With wife Helen Cruz, children, loved ones and friends, Atty. Ave opted for a double celebration at home in Dasmarinas Village Makati City and in SBC Mendiola at the famous jubilee garden
right at the St. Benedict shrine which he donated in 2002.

It will be recalled that in 2007, Atty. Ave and family went to a pilgrimage to the Monastery of St. Benedict in Subiaco, Italy. It was during his visit to the Holy Grotto of St. Benedict in Subiaco
where he was touched by the inspiring life, sacrifices, miracles and works of this great Saint. Moved by the Benedictine Spirit, Atty. Ave together with wife Helen, proposed in September 2007 to donate a Saint Benedict shrine in San Beda Mendiola, as their way of thanking God for all the wonderful graces and special blessings received by them through Saint Benedict intercession.
