Isang Tugon Campaign
“Isang Tugon” campaign launched
for Collegio Filippino rehab
THE ARCHDIOCESE OF MANILA is embarking on a fund-raising drive for the rehabilitation and renovation of the Pontificio Collegio Filippino, the home of Filipino priests-scholars undertaking further ecclesiastical studies at the heart of the Universal Church in Rome.
Our Present Residents
The Collegio is currently home to 28 student priests from the different Philippine dioceses. Another 10 priests live with us, who come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, and Zimbabwe.
Three Administrators coordinate the Collegio's day to day activities: a Rector, a Vice-Rector/Procurator, and a Spiritual Director.
Four Filipina Dominican Sisters (OP's of the Congregación Misionaria de Santo Domingo) help as support staff of our Pontifical College. They are assisted by three lay personnel.
WELCOME to the Pontificio Collegio Filippino!
Inaugurated by Blessed Pope John XXIII in 1961, the Collegio is the "Home in Rome" of Filipino secular diocesan priests, carefully chosen and formally sent by their respective bishops to pursue further studies in the different ecclesiastical centers in Rome.
His Eminence, Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, shares the good news of the Collegio, and asks for support:
You, Our Friends
The Collegiohas always welcomed guests visiting us for a few hours or a few days (space permitting) referred by the Bishops or our Residents and Alumni, or by other guests who have enjoyed the family atmosphere of this Filipino "Home in Rome".
Our friends continue to be united with us through their prayers, encouragement and material support. We also include them in our daily intentions, especially in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
