Pastoral Care Committee
FMS Pastoral Care Committee
The FMS pastoral care committee was first established in December 2017 after heeding the call of then Grand Chancellor Rev. Fr. Bruno Cadore, O.P. that the university and its members should be pastoral care agents. Rev. Fr. Angel Aparicio, O.P , the faculty regent of FMS together with the initiative of the Assistant Dean Dr. Esterlita Judan-Ruiz convened the committee with the mission of fostering a nurturing and caring community among the administration, faculty, students and non-academic staff all towards one goal of molding competent, committed and compassionate members of the college in the service of God and of each other. Several programs and activities are regularly done in order to achieve this higher pursuit such as regular monthly community mass, block rosary, Lenten and advent reflections, gathering with non-Catholics, faculty values formation and special talks.
