July News

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

  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.
  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.

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.
