Reunion (the survivors)
In 1968, we started our priestly formation at the St. Alphonsus' Minor Seminary. We were fourteen years old and there were 28 in our class. Only three were ordained priests - Fr. Senen Javier, Fr. Claro Conde and I.
So forty years later, the three of us came together celebrate and to reminisce. Fr. Senen and I are assigned here in Davao as part of the theology faculty. Fr. Claro Conde is now parish priest in the Isle of Wight, England. He came home to celebrate the death anniversary of his father death and so we invited him to Davao. Our last "reunion" was in Rome fourteen years ago.
