Happy Feast Day to St. Joseph!!!

A friend of mine shared in her blog as her special gift/treat to her dear readers a photo she took at the SVD Seminary in Tagaytay City, Philippines, on March 19, 2006 (take note of the date!) when the priests, seminarians and lay mission partners had a Lenten procession in their grounds…Look at the picture carefully. You may have to zoom in the photo so you can see the unmistakable hovering presence of St. Joseph..


Several SVD confreres, especially overseas, wanted to see the Dinner for a Cause held at the Divine Word Seminary of Tagaytay last February 13. It was initiated for the renovation of the seminary roof, especially the Holy Spirit chapel. Nag-le-leak na kasi kapag umuulan (doon pa banda sa Blessed Sacrament). So, ayan na, ito na po.

This is during our practices. Complete attendance.


That is Frt. Benedicto Awitin, SVD with our Prefect Fr. Meng Menguito, SVD. Very serious during practice, huh.


The seminary quadrangle was the venue of the Dinner for a Cause.


Actually, before the dinner, there was a Lucernarium or Evening Prayer which was greatly appreciated by the visitors. Then, the dinner followed.


That’s the community, full-force!


We also serenaded the visitors per table, actually…


That is Fr. Jaekel Solde, SVD together with his visitors from Batangas…
