What a great opportunity for the Philippines Scholasticate Community to start their year in a more challenging, interesting and exciting journey in the field of studies. Bros. Von, Ronald and Lester have started their regular Theology Class in Mary Hill School of Theology on August 8, 2016. But beforehand, on August 1-4, 2016 they had first, a week of English workshop and on August 5, 2016 they attended the Student Orientation and the Holy Spirit Mass presided by Bishop Pablo David of Caloocan and concelebrated by priests from the different congregations. It was also on August 8, 2016 when Bros. Armel and Samuel started their first day of Philosophy Studies at St. Anthony Mary Claret College. The School is far and it takes an hour and a half of travel to reach the place. The students find it as a great challenge to grow in patience and flexibility throughout the year. The opening of classes started with the Holy Spirit Mass presided over by the College President Rev. Fr. Samuel Canilang, CMF; followed with the Students’ Orientation and regular class schedule aftewards. This school year has opened a new horizon for the scholastics to challenge themselves in facing the different expectations and encounters of the outside world as well as to nurture themselves with the opportunities of learnings and experiences which will guide them in total growth and maturity in the different field of human and spiritual journey.
