Amidst surging COVID-19 cases, the St. Clement Mission Seminary of the Redemptorist Vice-Province of Manila successfully opens the 2021-2022 formation year last August 15, 2021. The community superior and formator, Rev. Fr. Brian L. Espejo, C.Ss.R., presided over the acceptance of four new senior high school students, one collegian and one young professional aspirant.
The formation community is currently composed of seventeen formandis – seven in the senior high school program, three in the collegiate program, two in the Intensive Immersion Program (IIP), one in the Postulancy program and four in the Aspirancy program. Bro. Rey Regan N. Gatdula, CSsR, also joined the community as the new formator for Aspirancy, Postulancy and IIP programs. St. Clement Mission Seminary serves as the primary locus of training and formation for aspiring missionaries of the Vice-Province.
The formation community, located in Mariposa, Cubao, Quezon City, will celebrate its 40th founding anniversary this coming December 8, 2021.
