Lucas Hall is one of the oldest buildings of Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro City.
It was named after Fr. Joseph Lucas, SJ, who was Director from 1933-1934. Fr. Lucas was also a Pastor and Superior of Northern Mindanao missions. (SOURCE)
Directly fronting Lucas Hall is a garden with a monument of Jesuit founder St. Ignatius of Loyola.
XU students often joke about the”missing sword” of the statue.
In early years, this garden was open and without shade. Now, the planted palm trees are now tall and provide shade.
Up to now, classes are still being held at Lucas Hall during the school year.
