Espina: 400 Years of Recoletos in Cebu

Mila C. Espina

The Recoletos celebrate their 400 years of presence in Cebu. Their mission to evangelize and educate has been extensively felt, and the Academe, like the then-Colegio de San Jose Recoletos, now the University of San Jose-Recoletos, and the other parishes and schools in the Philippines continue to imbibe the religious and educational teachings of St. Augustine.
