Knights of Columbus seminarian-scholars Ordained to the Sacred Order of Priesthood

During the month of May, two scholars of the KC Fr. George J. Willmann Charities, Inc. were ordained to the Sacred Order of Priesthood in their respective Dioceses.

Last May 5, 2015, the community of Sto. Niño Cathedral witnessed Rev. Fr. Magdaleno G. Villarica III as he pledged his perpetual vow of celibacy to Most Rev. Warlito I. Cajandig DD, Bishop, Apostolic Vicar of Calapan.

Fr. Bong, as he is fondly called, was born on September 14, 1986 to Mr. Roy and Mrs. Perla Villarica of Victoria Oriental Mindoro. He graduated from his Philosophy degree at Saint Agustine Seminary in 2008. Thereafter, the seminary formators recommended that he continue pursuing his priestly formation. He was then selected during the school year 2009-2010 as one of the scholars of the Knights of Columbus Fr. George J. Willmann Charities, Inc. for a five-year course in Theology at Divine Word Seminary in Tagaytay City. Bishop Cajandig ordained him to the Sacred Order of Deacon last November 18, 2014.

Meanwhile, May 25, 2015 marked the ordination of a second KC seminarian-scholar in the person of Rev. Fr. Remejun Dagon. The ordination was held at the Mary Mediatrix Parish with Most Rev. Romulo T. Dela Cruz DD, Parish Priest as mass presider.

Fr. Jun is the eldest son of Mr. Rene and Mrs. Mercedita Dagon. Born on February 18, 1985, Fr. Jun finished his primary education at Dimakanit Elementary School in 1998. Inspired by their Parish Priest, he entered the Notre Dame of Tulunan (administered by the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena) for his secondary studies which he completed in 2002.

Afterwards, he continued his studies at St. Francis Xavier College where he earned his Bachelors degree in Philosophy in 2007. Upon the recommendation of then Diocesan Administrator Rev. Fr. Armando C. Angeles, Fr. Jun was able to continue his Theological Formation at the St. Francis Xavier Regional Major Seminary thru a scholarship grant by the Foundation starting school year 2007-2008. Fr. Jun was ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacon last June 28, 2014 by Most Rev. Archbishop Romulo Valle DD, at San Pablo Cathedral, Davao City. (Christopher Camila)
