Happy 429th Foundation Anniversary!!!
5 December 1588. Dies natalis Recollectionis, Foundation Day of the Recollection.
Did you know that the idea to celebrate the Anniversary of the Order of Augustinian Recollects on the fifth of December was recommended in 1955 by the Servant of God Jenaro Fernández, OAR?
On the occasion of the founding anniversary of the Order, 12 housing units for loyal staffers of Casiciaco Recoletos Seminary were blessed last Dec. 5, 2017.
Rev. Fr. Dionisio Q. Selma, OAR, prior provincial, led the rite of blessing of the 2-storey, 12-unit row house project on Dahlia St., Brgy. San Luis, Baguio City, which is a short walking distance away from the seminary.
“It is the mandate of the last Provincial Chapter to provide housing units for our loyal employees because the Order cares for them and their well-being,” said Fr. Bob Cabanag, OAR.
