St. Anthony Zaccaria Seminary, Philippines

Project Leader:

Very Reverend Robert Kosek, Crsp

The St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria Seminary was completed in 1992 and is situated in Marikina City, Metro Manila. It serves as the formation house for aspirants and postulants for the Clerics Regular of St. Paul (Barnabite Fathers). The students who now study philosophy come from all over the Philippines (Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao) and many of which come from very impoverished families and low-income groups who can barely financially support the cost of seminary formation. We have currently 13 seminarians under our care (distributed among Grades 12, Freshmen & Sophomore Philosophy students), and the vocation campaign has been severely hampered by the current pandemic. Please consider supporting their vocations.

January 21, 2020 Dear Neil, Thank you for your kind and very generous support toward our Barnabite formation work, here in the Philippines – the Catholic heart of Asia. It is a real consolation to me to realize that there are those who are willing to make sacrifices in order to share in our mission of the Catholic Church. In a very real sense, you are among those who give life to our existence as a seminary, where are being formed young men to become fisherman for Christ. The generosity of benefactors like you never ceases to amaze me. It is always heartwarming when we are surprised by an unexpected donation. It is with deep and mindful gratitude that I send you my priestly blessing. You cannot even imagine with what joy and gratefulness we welcome your very generous considering this very trying pandemic time. A donation like yours, as you know, goes a long way in helping us in forming our seminarians every month. Our monthly cost of maintaining a seminarian amounts to $ 294.00. Thank you for what you have for us through your generous gift in our effort to prayerfully imitate the ultimate servant, Christ, in what we strive to do each and every day. God bless! Sincerely Yours in the Lord, Fr. Robert Kosek, CRSP Director of Mission Development Office barnabitemissions@gmail.com
