About HASS

The year 1985 saw the dawn of a new era of the Philippine Church as well as that Asia, in general. Through the initiative of the late Archbishop of Manila, His Eminence Jaime Cardinal L. Sin, D.D., the Holy Apostles Senior Seminary, the first of its kind in the Philippines and in Asia, was born. It was the local church’s “response to the growing emergence of vocations among men, who after finishing their college courses and practicing their professions, feel called to the priestly ministry.” Continue Reading…

“When I was a professional, already working abroad, there was this deep emptiness in my life when I really felt this call. I could have ignored it. I evaded it actually. But in the end, I realized, it was like God was always there, telling me to give it a try. And so I did…and I feel that if you are called in this vocation that God gifted you, there will be no regrets.”

“There are two distinct gifts of the Holy Apostles to the Church. First, because the seminarians have previous careers, then the careers can still be gifts for the Church. One can be an accountant for the Church, an auditor for the Church, an engineer for the Church. The second gift is the gift of spirituality. The formation at HASS is heavily weighted on spirituality. ”

“Ako kaya ay tinatawag sa pagpapari? Huwag mong hayaang manatili ang tanong sa iyong kalooban. Mag-apply ka. Minsan ang Diyos ay kumikilos bago ka kumilos. Kung minsan naman, ang Diyos ay kumikilos pagkatapos mong kumilos. Pero kailangang tandaan natin na kahit kailan, hindi kikilos ang Diyos kung hindi ka kikilos…”
