On Saturday 19th March, Marist Asia students Niño Memorial and Roque Rebito graduated from the St Alphonsus Theological and Mission Institute, with the degree of Master in Theology in Pastoral Ministry.
Both successfully defended synthesis papers as the final requirement for the conferment of the degree.
Niño’s paper – “Set the Captives Free: Challenging the Penal System” – looked at the situation of prisoners in Davao City, and Roque’s – “Remembering and Forgetting: Memory and Theology” – explored the theological significance of memory.
Niño and Roque, along with John Guo Wang, will be perpetually professed in April, and ordained deacons in May.
