Fr. Garry Bacol, SVD

Tagaytay City.  Fr. Garry A.  Bacol, SVD our DWCU Regent last school year 2008-2009 was elevated and anointed to the Order of Priesthood last December 4, 2010 together with his four classmates who belong to the Xin Ya Class. Fr. Garry comes from the province of Bohol and will be assigned as missionary to Argentina Southern Province.

Fr. Randy Flores, SVD shares: Around 60 priests, 100 SVD seminarians and brothers, and 400 visitors prayed in the chapel of Divine Word Seminary with Bishop Ben Famadico of the Diocese of Gumaca in Quezon province, the ordaining prelate. The bishop is an alumnus of the seminary and in his homily he spoke about his own trial in the seminary–the death of his father followed by a thought of leaving the seminary to help his family. It was the late Fr. Franz Josef Fetzer, SVD then the parish priest of Roxas, Occidental Mindoro, the Bishop’s birthplace, who encouraged him to remain in the seminary by narrating to him a personal story of his vocation. The bishop remembered very well the last words of Fr. Fetzer which the former also left as words of encouragement to the young men about to be ordained: “Ben, God will not abandon you. God will always provide.”

The board of trustees, administration, faculty, non-academic personnel and students of the Divine Word College of Urdaneta express our heartfelt felicitations to our new SVD Priest Fr. Garry. We assure you of our continuous prayers.
