Filed in Posts by on September 10, 2017

Four new members of the San Jose Seminary community were invested with the sacred cassock on Saturday, September 9, 2017, Memorial of St. Peter Claver. Acting rector Rev. Fr. Felipe Fruto Ramirez, SJ led the investitute rites at the Oratory of St. Joseph.

In his homily, Fr. Rector reminded the seminarians that the sacred cassock or soutane is a sign of consecration. He also said that the soutane is not a garb that would magically transform the seminarians into priests and saints. He then emphasized the need for an intensive formation for future ordained ministers of the Church. He also exhorted that wearing the soutane should lead the seminarians to greater love and service to God and His people.

The newly invested seminarians were Sem. Jayson Dinaga (Archdiocese of Cotabato), Sem. Christiane Joseph Jocson (Diocese of Kalookan), Sem. Donald Polilio (Archdiocese of Cotabato), and Sem. Eduardo Miguel Ramirez (Archdiocese of Manila). (Jeric Pena)
