A year ago, a renewal of vows for a couple who were in their senior years was held at the seminary chapel. I found it sweet that their love endured many decades, yet they were looking at each other as if it was their first time to get married. I was not aware who they were that time, but I found out later that they are Manong Fulgencio and Manang Consolacion Culaton, parents of one of our kitchen personnel. I learned that Manong Fulgencio is considered a pillar of Casiciaco Recoletos Seminary; having served the seminary for more than 60 years. He has seen a great deal of the history of the seminary throughout those years. He was neither a seminarian nor a formator, yet his story is similar to theirs: he was called to be in the seminary for no other reason but to serve.
