Father Provincial Bonifacio Solis and Father Jose Angel Lopez（ホセ・アンヘル・ロペス）, welcome to Japan and Aiko Gakuen.
Father Provincial Bonifacio Solis, it was 15 years ago, you came to Japan and attended Aiko’s 50th anniversary ceremony! At that time, I was the master of ceremonies. The ceremony and your speech remains vivid in my mind.
Last week we were informed that you’d be coming to Japan and visiting our school. Our students and our faculty members have been looking forward to seeing you ever since.
Your effort and presence today encourage all the students and faculty members.
Father Provincial Bonifacio Solis and Father Jose Angel Lopez（ホセ・アンヘル・ロペス）, thanks for thinking of us and your generous time is greatly appreciated.
Father Provincial Bonifacio Solis, would you please approach the platform desk, then the student council president, Hibiki Hasegawa, and Riria Kawaguchi will give their welcoming speeches.
