CFC ANCOP USA, Pontificio Collegio Fillipino Sign Partnership Agreement

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

His Eminence Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Chairman of Pontificio Collegio Filippino, and its Rector Msgr. Greg Gaston recently signed the  ANCOP USA Priest sponsorship Program (PSP)  partnership with Eric Villanueva, Roger santos and Rollie Balanza, Couples for Christ - ANCOP USA leaders. The ANCOP USA PSP will assist priests from the Philippines who will be sent by their Bishops to do advance studies in Rome.

In his letter to Villanueva, Cardinal Tagle wrote, “Our partnership will allow more Bishops to send Priests for ongoing formation and further studies in Rome, to better equip them in serving God's people as seminary Formators and as collaborators in the different Diocesan Ministries back home. As a result, our Church in the Philippines will be strengthened, so that Priests and laity alike could carry out our respective work of evangelization and service, not only to the Church, but also to society.” 

According to the agreement, the PSP is for Master's, Licentiate or Doctorate studies only. ANCOP USA PSP funds will cover the priest’s board and lodging at the Collegio in the amount of $10,000 per year. All other needs, such as tuition fees, medical insurance, transportation, books, etc., will be provided for by the Bishop as a local counterpart. This would ensure that priests can benefit from the partnership. To donate or to know more about the program, please visit USA Communications)
