"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
God wished to sow in every soul the seeds of intelligence and wisdom.
(Sermo 117,11)
So great is the power of the good that even evil doers seek it.
(Sermo 29, 1)
I realize what I am and praise you for it. Come to my aid, that I may not stray from the way of salvation.
(Sermo 67, 9)

The Province of Santo. Niño de Cebu held its 8th Ordinary Provincial Chapter from April 16 to 21, 2012 at the Santo Niño Spirituality Center, Tolotolo, Consolacion, Cebu with the theme “Growing in Communion: Revitalizing Community Life”. Forty-five friars participated in the meetings and deliberations under the presidency of Fr. Robert F. Prevost, OSA, Prior General. During the opening Eucharistic celebration, Fr. Prevost installed and confirmed the Prior Provincial, Fr. Eusebio B. Berdon, OSA who begins another term of office, and his Council, comprising Frs. Andrew P. Batayola, OSA, Jonas Mejares, OSA, Frederick C. Comendador, OSA and Victor Gonzaga, OSA.

One of the highlights of the Chapter, which expresses the intention of the Province to extend its ministries and which affirms its missionary zeal, is the creation of three new communities or areas of apostolate: the University of San Agustin-Sambag Extension Campus in Iloilo City; the Santa Ana Sub-Parish in Burgos, Siargao Island; and a mission parish in the Diocese of Bayombong in the town of Saguday, Quirino. Additionally the Province has reaffirmed its desire to offer assistance to other provinces.
