Jul 4, 2023

At 10:00 am on 15 June 2023, LST President and Dean, Fr. Enrico C. Eusebio SJ, and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Fr. Rogel Anecito L. Abais SJ, paid a courtesy call at the Dicastery for Culture and Education at the Vatican City in Rome.

They were received on behalf of the Cardinal Prefect, José Tolentino de Mendonça DD, by the Secretary for the Education Section, Monsignor Giovanni Cesare Pagazzi. The LST Delegation was accompanied by former LST President and now Consultor of the Dicastery, Fr. Jose V.C. Quilongquilong SJ.

The official of the Dicastery inquired about latest developments in our ecclesiastical faculty in the context of the Philippines. Fr. President informed Msgr. Pagazzi about LST’s efforts in providing theological formation during the pandemic and our eventual return to full face-to-face instruction in our ecclesiastical degree programs. The official also asked about the number of students, both local and international, enrolled in LST; the pastoral involvement of LST and the Jesuits within the wider Ateneo de Manila University, and LST’s approach in theological reflection in the context of the Philippines and of Asia.

Msgr. Pagazzi was pleased to learn about the success of LST’s recent International Conference on Youth Ministry held last 13-15 April 2023 in cooperation with the Salesians of Don Bosco, participated in by over 700 delegates from the Philippines and the Asia Pacific Region.

LST is one of the two institutions in the Philippines that grants the ecclesiastical degrees, Baccalaureate in Sacred Theology (STB), Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL), and Doctorate in Sacred Theology (STD). The degrees are also offered at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila.

The Vatican Dicastery for Culture and Education is responsible for the supervision of all Pontifical Universities, Ecclesiastical Faculties, and Catholic Schools, Colleges, and Universities in the world.
