Last August 4, 2015, the seminary community celebrated the Feast of St. John Vianney, patron of priests. Fr. Nono Nopre, parish priest of St. Anthony Parish in Camaligan presided over the celebration of the Eucharist. Other priests who celebrated the Triduum of Masses were: Fr. Marcel Real (San Jose, Pili, Camarines Sur), Fr. Louan Jarcia (Pili, Camarines Sur) and Fr. Ryan Fenis (Casuray, Magarao, Camarines Sur). John Marie Vianney earned his reputation as parish priest of Ars, a remote French hamlet. He lived a life of extreme mortification. He was accustomed to the most severe austerities, beleaguered by swarms of penitents, and was besieged by the devil himself, this great mystic manifested a imperturbable patience. He was loved by all crowds, but he retained a childlike simplicity, and he remains even to this day the living image of the priest after the heart of Christ. He often heard confessions from people all over the day for sixteen hours each day! His live was filled with works of charity and love and it even recorded that even the staunchest of sinners were converted at his mere word. He died August 4, 1859, and was canonized May 31, 1925.
