PHC Provincialate

PHC Provincialate

Short Description

SVD-Philippines has three provinces: Central (PHC), North (PNC) and South (PHS). PHC comprises of the Metro-Manila Area and includes the nearby islands of Mindoro, Palawan, Romblon and Antique, as well as the cities of Tagaytay in Cavite and Legaspi in Bicol.

When established

The Philippine SVD Mission was the last sent by the Founder himself, Fr. Arnold Janssen, before he passed away in 1909. The first missionaries arrived in Abra in that year, and from there expanded reasonably rapidly southwards. By 1920 the regional head office was moved from Abra to Manila, during the term of Fr. Miguel Hergesheimer. The Philippines became one Province, dedicated to Christ the King, in March 1937. In 1982 the split into the 3 provinces became official.

Quezon City Formation Community(1933)(DIOCESE OF CUBAO)

Quezon City Formation Community(1933)(DIOCESE OF CUBAO)

Short Description

Called Christ the King Mission Seminary (CKMS), the formation house is now home mainly to college seminarians doing philosophy, before they will be sent to the postulancy in Tagaytay.   The Associate Program is also done in CKMS, and graduate students to the Master’s Program are likewise welcomed here.  Besides the seminary, we find also in the community the Villa Cristo Rey which is our house for senior confreres, the Arnold Janssen Shrine, the resting place for our departed Arnoldus sisters, brothers and fathers.  The faculty building accommodates some guest students, mostly confreres.

When Established

During the fifth General Chapter of 1920, a commission recommended that native priests and candidates for the priesthood be advised to the possibility of joining the SVD.  On May 23, 1934, on the Silver Jubilee of the Society in the country, the new house was blessed.  In June of the same year the school opened with 8 first year high school and 8 junior college students.  In April 1935, the house was named after Christ the King.

Divine Word College of Legazpi (1961)

Short Description

The Divine Word College of Legazpi (DWCL) was originally Liceo de Albay, a diocesan parochial school for boys, before it was turned over to the SVD after a very strong typhoon in 1952.  In 1965 the high school became a college, at first offering Liberal Arts courses.  At present, the college has grown to be one of the most important educational institutions in the region, with graduate offerings in Business and Management (MBA) and in Public Administration (MPA), and undergraduate degree offerings in Business Education, Education, Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Computer Studies, Hospitality Management and Nursing.

When Established

In 1959, the ownership and management of Liceo de Albay, a Diocesan parochial school for boys, was formally transferred to the SVD.  In 1961, the Liceo de Albay became Divine Word High School.  In 1965 the first college courses were opened, leading to degrees in Commerce, Education, Liberal Arts and Secretarial.  In 1974, the AB Department offered A.B. Philosophy.  And, as they say, the rest is history.

Calapan Pastoral District (1959/1982)

Calapan Pastoral District (1959/1982)

Short Description

The Apostolic Vicariate of Calapan holds one of the SVD’s success stories in the Philippines.  Our continuing presence here is attested to by the solid achievements of the Divine Word College of Palawan, the Mangyan Mission, the Mission House and Holy Spirit Novitiate, and the remaining parishes and missions still being managed by the SVD.  Also assigned to the District is the Immaculate Conception Parish in the diocese of Romblon and the Divine Word Mission Center in the Archdiocese of Lipa.

When Established

Through the initiative of the Diocese of Lipa, the SVDs established its presence in Lubang, an island in Mindoro, where the pioneer missionary, Fr. Henry Demond, made a mark in the island’s history for having put up the Stella Maris School, its first Catholic school, in 1922.  On May 8, 1934, the entire island of Mindoro was officially entrusted to the SVD as a mission territory by Pope Pius XI.  On July 2, 1936, Mindoro was erected Prefecture Apostolic.  In 1950, Mindoro was officially divided into two civil provinces of Oriental and Occidental Mindoro.  On April 5, 1983 a decree from Rome made Occidental Mindoro a separate ecclesiastical district from Oriental Mindoro.

Tagaytay Formation Community (1963)

Tagaytay Formation Community (1963)

Short Description

Tagaytay City is home to two of PHC’s formation houses, the Divine Word Seminary (DWST) for our scholastics doing theology and the Pope John XXIII Training Center for our one-year postulancy program.  Recently, the Divine Word Institute of Missiological Studies (DWIMS) opened its graduate program, with the University of Sto. Tomas granting the degree as the only pontifical university in the country.

When Established

In 1955 a property of 65 hectares was bought in Alfonso, Cavite.  Due to some strong objection, 15 hectares of property were finally purchased in Tagaytay City in 1964.  To decongest Christ the King in Quezon City, the first group of pioneers arrived in Tagaytay, then “a dead city,” on September 12, 1963.  On June 15, 1964, all the members of the Provincial Council with Fr. General Schuette voted for the transfer of all scholastics, including theologians, to Tagaytay.  The philosophers left CKMS for Tagaytay on July 6, 1964, and the theologians followed suit on July 13.
