Mission


At the Chapel of the Divine Word Seminary in Tagaytay, a city 2 hours south of Manila. The seminary, according to its ever reliable Wikipedia entry, is one of the biggest schools of theology in Southeast Asia in terms of number of students. It is run by the Divine Word Missionaries, or more populary known as the Society of the Divine Word. That fellow on the portrait is Saint Arnold Janssen, the founder of the Divine Word Missionaries. Right now, the Missionaries are active in 70 countries all over the world.

Whee! You're in CDP! Welcome, Mia! I hope you enjoy the community as much as I do. People there are so supportive, it's wonderful. I doubt if I would have continued long without them.

I've never been here ever. The stained glass windows are pretty, and that ceiling looks like it must be great for acoustics.
