In celebration of the 30th Foundation Day of the Holy Apostles Senior Seminary, the HASS community held a talk-show inspired activity reminiscing the milestones in the life of the seminary.
Held at the Jaime Cardinal Sin Library of HASS, the activity, the first of its kind, was attended by some of its alumni: Fathers Cesar Buhat (Petros 1990), Carlos Aldema (Anawim 1991), Orlino Ordona (Agnus Cum Cor De Jesu 1998), Ramon Jade Licuanan (Metanoia 2001), and Douglas Badong and Augusto Abril (Ephraim 2012).
Ms. Dominica “Tita Domie” Noceda, an old hand in the seminary having served the longest as secretary, was also present. Also in attendance were HASS Rector Fr. Roberto Gaa (Anima 2000); HASS Dean of Seminarians, and Pastoral and Vocations Director Fr. Roy Rexelle Decena (Anamnesis 2011), Rev. Tommy Lira (Theopania Supra Mare 2014), and the current HASS seminarians.
The participants shared their memorable experiences, while expressing their hope of the continuity of HASS forming diocesan priests in its unique and distinct tradition.
