November 30, 2012, Feast of St Andrew Apostol and Bonifacio Day in the Philippines, was a very special day for the SCJ Philippine Region. Four of our confreres: Patrick, Thai, Khoa and Loc received the Holy Order of Priesthood. Patrick is a Filipino while the three others come from Vietnam. The celebration was held at San Lorenzo Ruiz Parsh in Quezon City, a walking distance from the Dehon House where our scholastics live. The ordaining bishop was his Excellency Antonio Tobias, DD, the bishop of Novaliches, our old-time friend from Pagadian Diocese. The celebration was very nice and was attended by more less 500 people. Majority of them were Vietnamese, members of different religious congregations and friends of the new priests.
