An unforgettable event ever! What a rare blessing from Almighty God for the Order of Augustinian Recollects! What a great number of workers for the Lord’s harvest! Never in the annals of history of the Augustinian Recollects in the Philippines since 1606 were so many Filipino priests ordained to the Sacred Order of Presbyterate—10 priests.
The new Recollect priests come from all over the Philippines: Ken Oliver Lao from Candelaria, Quezon; Nelson Plohimon from Kabankalan City, Jerik Troy Siozon from Tacloban City, Rafael Pecson from Jolo, Sulu; Mark Ryan Prado from Aklan; Nimrod Launio from Santa Barbara, Iloilo; Lounal Jarumay from Canlaon City; Leo Neil Bullos from Banga, South Cotabato; John Zachary Haguisan from Sipalay City and Enrico Nacorda from Cebu City.
