The Recoletos Formation Center, located at 81 Alondras Street, Mira-Nila Homes, Congressional Avenue Extension, Quezon City, is the theological formation house of the Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno of the Order of the Augustinina Recollects. Its history is interwover with Recoletos School of theology which is the theological arm of Recoletos Formation Center. As a theological center it offers a rigorous ecclesiastical curriculum in Bachelor of Arts in Sacred Theology affiliated with the University of Santo Tomas (UST) and a civil degree of Master of Arts in Theology (MAT) recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). It is owned and operated by the friars of the Order of Augustinian Recollects, Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno.


What did we see? Why digitize the physical documents of the Recoletos Formation Center and the Recoletos School of Theology?

Yes, we saw the need to preserve and better organize the files of the seminary.  We realize the value of making information about the formation house and center of theological studies more accessible to others.  This is for the benefit of the whole, of the wider society.  And something more! Digitizing our physical documents is expression of the essential element of our Augustinian monastic tradition, which “embraces the apostolate of the harmonious search for the truth and its fullest possible sharing in the service of the Church” (OAR Constitutions 27).

Self-effacing and generous were our millenial confreres and lay collaborators, headed by the Research Director of the Recoletos School of Theology, in completing this digitization.  I thank God in these, our brothers and silent workers, as I pray with and for them and all the beneficiaries of the project.
