Hail St. Anthony!

Hail St. Anthony!

The Chapel of St. Anthoy of Padua Seminary at Pulangbato, Masbate City.

The St. Anthony Seminary came to be from a need and a vision. Bishop Porfirio Rivera Iligan saw the need for supplying the manpower of the new diocese when he assumed the responsibility of serving the Diocese of Masbate as its first resident bishop. This was attested by the statistical data shown in the 1969 Catholic Directory of the Philippines: the newly created diocese started with one bishop, 21 diocesan priests, and nine ( 9 ) religious sisters to serve the people of God. The statistics clearly stated that for every one parish priest, there had been 12,000 Catholics to be cared for. As a consequence brought about by this dearth of priests, Bishop Iligan had to assume personally the responsibility of founding a seminary to train future priests for the growing diocese.

The Lord heard the supplication and sent a woman with a "Samaritan heart" in the person of Dona Patrocinio Zurbito Bayot to help the bishop solve the problem. On December 2, 1968, through the intercession of Archbishop Teofisto V. Alberto of Caceres, she donated a parcel of land to the diocese measuring 7.5 hectares, located at Pulangbato in Barangay Kinamaligan for the site of the future seminary. Just exactly a year after Bishop Iligan's installation, on September 29, 1969, Archbishop Alberto blessed the cornerstone of the proposed seminary in the aforementioned site, four ( 4 ) kilometers away from the center of Masbate town. The simple ceremony was also attended by Bishop Teotimo Pacis of Legazpi together with the clergy of Masbate and some sponsors.

In 1971, its first year of operation, there were only six ( 6 ) pioneering seminarians recruited by the bishop himself. Two ( 2 ) of them eventually became priests: Fr. Epifanio Marcaida of Uson and Fr. Raynald Nacino, Jr. of San Jacinto. With the seminary building at Pulangbato still unfinished, they had been temporarily housed in a building owned by Mr. Vicente Lim, Sr., at the corner of Danao and Mabini streets in Masbate proper - just a stone-throw from Liceo de Masbate where they were studying. Fr. Quintin Feraren, the first rector, was also the procurator, prefect of discipline, and the cook.

By the following school year ( 1972 ), there was a noticeable increase of seminarians. The old rectory of Mobo, Masbate had to be occupied as the provisional seminary. However, the distance ( about seven kilometers ) sometimes posed some hazards to the lives of the seminarians who had to commute daily for their classes at Liceo de Masbate. Conscious of the safety and health of the seminarians, the good bishop exerted all possible efforts to complete the permanent seminary at Pulangbato. The following year the seminary community vacated the old rectory in Mobo and transferred to the still unfinished dormitory building in Pulangbato. In their new found home, they enjoyed an atmosphere of peace and tranquility amid the lush greenery of the area.

The formal blessing of the new seminary took place on May 27, 1975. The Papal Nuncio to the Philippines, Most Rev. Bruno Torpigliani officiated the momentous event which was also graced by the presence of some Bicol bishops, clergy, and sponsors. It was indeed a great achievement on the part of Bishop Iligan. He even considered the seminary as the "apple" of his eyes and the future of the diocese. He became more saddled with the insatiable desire for the good of the Masbatenos. His ripening age had not deterred him from traveling abroad to solicit funds. Whence his foresight coupled with industry begot for him many sweet fruits of success. The present nine ( 9 ) buildings of the seminary are but some of the fruits of his labors and testaments of his shininh accomplishment.

Due to risk and inconvenience of commuting back and forth to Liceo de Masbate, the seminary administrators decided to work for independence and government recognition which was finally granted in year 1980. Since then it is functioning as an independent institution. In the school year 1984-1985, the Pre-College formation was added and formally opened with four ( 4 ) pioneers. Two ( 2 ) of them eventually became priests: Fr. Dante Almeniana of Monreal, Fr. Olivrer Laurio of Baleno, and Fr. Roberto Real of Mandaon. Under the administation of Msgr. Aquino Atendido, the longest serving rector, the enrollment increased significantly every year, even surpassing 100 mark. And he steered the seminary to academic prestige making this institution one of the best schools in the Bicol region as manifested / shown in the NCEE ( National College Entrance Examinations ) results and even topping some competitions.

The seminary has proven itself to be successful in its undertakings. It has so far produced sixty-two ( 62 ) priests ( as of 2009 ): 36 from high school and 26 from Pre-College ( plus 3 deacons ). And those who have not pursued the priestly vocation live up to the ideals of the seminary by being

Cubao Farmers market

Cubao Farmers market

Farmers Market is one of the best “wet” markets in Metro Manila. Good and convenient location, airy set-up, wide aisles, numerous vendors, organized sections, excellent variety and competitive prices make for a great shopping experience. Any metro foodie from near or far should walk its aisles at least once. I believe great markets thrive when there is a meeting of two groups of people: vendors who offer quality, variety, good prices, consistency, volume, etc. and consumers who come regularly armed with serious aggregate buying power. Farmers (as it is called by regulars) has plenty of both groups – thus its success.

Farmers Market is a bit of a misnomer as it does not appear to be made up of farmers who cart their produce to the market then return to the farm after their harvest has been sold. Instead, it is more of a traditional wet market where vendors are simply middlemen/women sourcing the best the country has to offer and selling to a wide variety of consumers ranging from the middle class housewife, the cook or major domo of a wealthy family or the buyer of a nearby restaurant or cafeteria. I raise this point as farmer’s markets are popping up all over North America and there has been a growing trend of getting the freshest produce directly from the source – think Union Square Farmer’s Market in New York City, for example.

Farmers Market in Cubao is located right on EDSA, beside the Cubao Shopping Complex and adjacent to the Cubao MRT station. It has a very central and accessible location. You can take your car and use nearby parking (though it tends to get full later in the day), you can take an MRT, and there are all types of public transportation such as buses, jeepneys and taxis nearby. It’s tough to miss this landmark that has been around for roughly 30 years. The structure is rather large with approximately 3-4,000 square meters of covered area, possibly more. Everything is covered by a warehouse type roof that sits very high above the market, which provides an airy and less dark interior. The market is apparently private and seems better organized than most public markets. There are two levels at farmers, the upper that houses fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. and the lower level that has the seafood and meat sections. Hygiene is generally good on the upper level but less consistent in the lower level. Depending on the time of day and the last pick-up of garbage, some parts of the market can be grotty.
