Espina: Religious milestones

·1 min read

The OAR (Order of Augustinian Recollects) religious community celebrated its 400 years of presence in Cebu and the 25th Sacerdotal Ordination Anniversary and 30th Anniversary of Simple Profession of Vows of six Augustinian Recollect friars namely: Fray Corvin R. Maturan, OAR; Fray Julius M. Marcos, OAR; Fray Anthony A. Morillo, OAR; Fray Vicente L. Ramon, OAR; Fray Ferdinand V. Fornillos, OAR and Fray Cristopher C. Maspara, OAR.

I had the pleasure to attend this event because I worked with the celebrants during my last year of deanship before I retired. This group has been one of my favorite Recoletos because the group members were part of two religious musicals I directed at the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) and a few of our cultural trips in Beijing and the USA.

The solemn mass at the Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel-Recoletos was attended by the celebrants’ families, friends, USJ-R faculty and teachers.

As Hermana General—bestowed on me by the Order of the Augustinian Recollects in 2011 by the Prior General Fr. Miguel Miro, OAR, held at USJ-R—I was privileged to attend and celebrate these religious milestones of the OAR. All these are Godsent to me and treasured by my family.
