The yearlong celebration of the 30th Founding Anniversary of CSA - Biñan started off with the Holy Eucharist at the CSA Audi - Gym.

The Bishop of the Diocese of San Pablo, Laguna, Most Rev. Beunaventura M. Famadico, D.D. was the main celebrant with Very Rev. Fr. Eusebio B. Berdon O.S.A. as the co-celebrant. They were assisted by other Augustinian friars. The academic community gathered together as people of God to celebrate the very core event of the Eucharist which is to prepare for the yearlong celebration of the 30th Foundation Anniversary of CSA - Biñan with the theme Sustaining Excellence, Upholding Transformation and Envisioning Global Competence. The presence and participation of the administrators, faculty, employees, students, parents, and alumni helped in the envisioning of the mission of this year's celebration.

In connection with the yearlong celebration and the observance of the Lenten Season, the school also launched the Augustinian hunger Awareness Campaign last March 7, 2014. The campaign was a response to the call of the UN to aid the end of poverty by 2015.

Since Augustinians from around the world cannot bear to simply watch and see people dying of hunger, they heed St. Augustine's reminder to "Let us open our eyes, ears and hearts to observe the reality of hunger in our neighborhood, our country and the world; listen to the cries of the poor; and allow compassion to move us to act in our simple ways."
