Dear Fr. Provincial:

Greetings in the Divine Word!

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for sending me to Christ the King Mission Seminary for my Regency Year. It is my great joy to have served Christ the King! My Regency program has opened me to the realities of the SVD missions. Here in Christ the King, I had the taste of the formation program, a little of school management, a glimpse of parish work, a meaningful involvement in media apostolate and a personalized cyber-correspondence through my website. Furthermore, the overwhelming presence of my confreres also became a rich training ground for me to learn many things from them. These wholesome exposures in different aspects of SVD missions proved to be potent grounds in enhancing further my human maturity, committed faith and professional competence. It has widened my horizons in life and made my love for the mission of the SVD deeper.

In this regard, I formally apply for the next stage of formation, which is Third Year Theology. I look forward to go back to Divine Word Seminary of Tagaytay to continue my theological studies.

May God bless you and your administration. I am always including you in my prayers.

Witness to the Word,

Regent – Christ the King Mission Seminary





  1. dear felmar,

    your application is well-written. kaya lang, mali yata spelling ng first name ng provincial. nielo (not neilo) di ba?

    so, my best wishes for the next stage of your life in formation. you seem to be full of enthusiasm and zeal. we need more men like you joining our missionary ranks!

  2. Congratulations! Thanks for sharing your application letter here in your blogspot. Feeling ko tuloy you’re letting me into your intimate world! Haha! Just wanted to say this: your last sentence in the main paragraph which reads: “It has widen my horizons…” medyo grammatically in need of corrections. IT HAS WIDENED is the right one. Beware, too, of the common double comparative of MORE DEEPER. MORE is already comparative, the same with DEEPER. Anyway, it’s in the hands of the Provincial Superior. Enjoy your Theo 3 stage. Hope you continue to grow in your formation and ministry later. God bless and take care.

  3. Thanks! This has been really helpful since I am entering the seminary next month. The seminary also asked me for an application letter but I have no idea what to write. Your letter, on the other hand, guided me to write what I want to say. 🙂

    Greetings from the Sacred Heart Seminary, Archdiocese of Palo!
