RE: FORMATION OF GRADE 10 ALTAR SERVERS

Dear Brothers in Christ,

Greetings of Peace!

Last year we started with the formation of Grade 10 altar servers focusing on Decision-Making and Discernment. We would be continuing this program to aid them with regard to life choices that they have to make at the end of the school year. For this year, Grade 12 altar servers would also be joining the said formation This will be held at the San Carlos Seminary Philosophy Big Classroom from 1:30pm-5:30pm. You may ask your members to bring sports attire since this will also be an avenue of interaction with the seminarians. Again, may I reiterate that this formation schedule is only for Grade 10 and 12 altar servers. Please bring your own snacks.

The schedule for each vicariate is as follows:

October 6, 2018 
Vicariate of Sts. Peter and Paul
Vicariate of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Vicariate of Saint Joseph the Worker
Vicariate of Sta. Clara de Montefalco

October 20, 2018 
Vicariate of St. John the Baptist
Vicariate of San Felipe Neri
Vicariate of Our Lady of Loreto

November 10, 2018 
Vicariate of the Holy Family
Vicariate of Espiritu Santo
Vicariate of Nuesta Señora De Guia

January 12, 2019 
Vicariate of San Jose de Trozo
Vicariate of Santo Niño
Vicariate of San Fernando De Dilao

Secondly, I would also like to reiterate the previous decision made with regard to the basic formation. Basic formation for new altar servers will be done on the parish level to be handled by the respective coordinators. In case, you may need of assistance, feel free to contact the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission Office for scheduling in your respective parishes.

Lastly, in coordination with the Manila Archdiocesan Vocations Office, we would want to invite your members for a 2-day Seminary Search-in weekend experience. We are opening this invitation especially to your members who are discerning the call to the priesthood. But besides those who are discerning, we would also want to encourage your members to see the life in the seminary. This will be a first come, first serve basis since we are only allotting 15 slots per scheduled seminary weekend experience. Please contact the Manila Archdiocesan Vocations Office for your reservations. You may reach the said office through its landline 895-8855 loc 121 or through its mobile number (09260558408) and look for Ms. Lourdes Raya. You may also reach them via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

September 22-23, 2018

The Seminary Search-In Weekend Experience will begin at 1 pm of Saturday and will end at 5 pm of the following Sunday. Details will be provided upon registration. This will be held at San Carlos Seminary.

Thank you very much.


In Christ,
