There are many events in the seminary that I really cherished. Counting them makes me thank God for blessing me with wonderful people in my seminary formation. Behind these pictures are simple stories that create life time impact…
At the beginning of the school year, the Prefects’ Team scheduled a Purpose-Driven Life Retreat for our dear seminarians. The response on the part of our formands was very good. They were very participative during prayers and very interactive during activities. The speakers were associated with the competent Catholic group that gives PDL retreat. It was not only the seminarians who learned from the retreat, I also gained insights which really deepened my faith convictions.
Ah, this is the start of the Family Feast! I was roaming around to check the Trinitarium Class in their preparations. They were enjoying the job!

A toast to the success of the Family Feast. This is taken during the Victory Party. After all the sleepless nights and preparations-that-seemed-like-eternity, we congratulated ourselves and partied all night. Thank you Trinitarium Class!

Just mention Manny Pacquaio and every seminarian has something memorable to share. Every corner of our seminary has been a witness of how seminarians united ourselves when Pacquaio is in the ring. The fights of Pacman have always been a source of pride and unity among us.

This picture is taken for cyber-promotion of the vocation office. I called on some seminarians to have photo sessions with me to be posted at the website that I was planning to make for the SVD. I asked them to wear sotanas and pose before the camera. This one came out so naturally.

This one is taken in Surigao during our Regency processing. For the first time after so many months, we regents were gathered to share our sacred stories of “formation in mission for the mission.” Of course, the outing was great too!

This one was unexpected! Rev. Elmer Ibarra, SVD asked me to accompany him for his guesting stint at the program of Fr. Bel San Luis, SVD. When we were already at DZMM, I was also asked to join him!

This one is meaningful and funny. I joined the fourth year class in their evening prayers. It turned out that a generous person gave them a cake courtesy of Red Ribbon. Before we ate the cake, we spent some time for photo sessions. It was a moment of delaying gratification. “Hating-kapatid” was their practice. Ah, that was great!

This is during our Christmas party — an occassion to remember and to always cherish! I made a youtube presentation for this!
