July News

Several of our centers are active now. However, in this post we will focus on three.

  1. Glocal Community— Headed by CPSP-PH President, Dr. Paul Tabon, and based in Baguio, has recently opened up a new training— Community Chaplain training. The course connects chaplain’s with PNP, barangay leaders, and municipalities to serve. While this course is an end to itself, those who complete are well-set to move into CPE. Dr. Tabon presently has 20 trainees in the program. He has also worked with trainees from Bukal Life Care in working with the police in Christian Life Coaching. Picture below.
  2. The Chaplains Office. Based in Bocaue, Bulacan and headed by Chaplain Renato Eustaquio is starting a “hybrid” CPE program. It has different sub-disciplines… Hospital, Community, and Corporate chaplaincy, along with Pastoral Counseling.
  3. Jethro Guidance Center, Inc. -Collegium of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy (CPSP) servicing the need for Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) of students of Union Theological Seminary (UTS). Thank you Rev. Dr. Larry Paul B. Gusto, Rev. Ephraim Guerrero, Rev. Dr. Sim Dang-awan and Rev. Carmel Villar of the Dr. José Andrés Sotto Center for Spiritual and Pastoral Care-UTS. Pictures below.

As an added item—- Sadly we only found out about this a year late. We share sorrow with PACPE in the passing of Dr. Lucio Mutia in 2021. Dr. Mutia headed the program at Silliman University having a great impact on Clinical Pastoral Education in the Philippines. He will certainly be missed.
