Filed in Posts by on June 4, 2017

13 new seminarians from different dioceses of the Philippines entered San José Seminary on Saturday, June 3, 2017. They represent 10 different dioceses across the country.

For six weeks, the first year seminarians will undergo the orientation program to acquaint them with the Josefino way of life. “Ad Amorem” is this year’s theme for the Orientation. The program aims to highlight the commitment of San José Seminary to the Church in forming priests who, nourished by the Love of our Lord Jesus Christ, are driven and empowered to show this love in and through their lives and ministries. It will also introduce them to the formation program and structure of San José Seminary while focusing on the ways and traditions that constitute it. It will end on Saturday, July 15, 2017.

The Orientation Committee is headed by Sem. Glenn Tabudlong (Maasin). He is also joined by Sem. Jason Alde (Manila), Sem. Val Alpapara (Cubao), Sem. Benj Espiritu (San Fernando, Pampanga), Sem. Jeric Peña (Kalookan), Sem. Joshua Sadernas (Novaliches), Sem. Genesis Toledo (Kalookan), Sem. Earl Valdez (Manila), and Sem. Michael George Villasis (Novaliches). Fr. Bong Dahunan, SJ, house minister, is also the priest in-charge for this year’s orientation.

Sem. Michael George Villasis (Novaliches), who just concluded his special philosophy studies last school year, joins the Theology 1 (T1) class this formation year.
