It is with deep sadness that the author of this blog, the former Rector, will now bid goodbye to all SJVTS fans and followers. It would have been a joy in my part to continue updating you with all the seminary events; but my term has ended and I have to move on "to other towns." So, with an equally grateful heart, I close the pages of Paterhemon and hope that the blogs of Fr. Frank will suffice to keep you abreast of the latest happenings at SJVTS. Remember to keep posted especially since this is the Silver Jubilee.
Also, please welcome the RECTOR OF SJVTS in the person of REV. FR. CELERINO "CEL" REYES, S.J., the outgoing director of the CIS: Center for Ignatian Spirituality. Fr. Cel is not really new to Vianney. As a young priest, he served here for 3 years, I think, as Vice-Rector. Together with Fr. Cel, coming in as Vianney Formators are Fr. Demli Valmores (CDO) and Fr. Julius Clavero (CDO). Fr. Raul Dael is also due to return to Vianney in June and will return to his post as Director of the SHPFY (formerly SPFY and now a.k.a. "Galilee Year" or GY).
Those exiting, whom we shall accompany with our prayers and profound gratitude, are Fr. Rector, Fr. Abet Uy and Fr. Joey Rapadas. The new administration also signals the beginning of Vianney's journey towards her Golden Jubilee. See you all the Grand Silver Alumni Homecoming which will be--take note--on 23-25 August 2010.
