Golden Jubilee of Br. Romulo Porras

05/08/2019: Philippines

During these months of vacation in the northern hemisphere, many brothers have celebrated an important milestone in their journey as followers of the ideal of Saint Marcellin Champagnat. In recounting the celebration in the Philippines below, we recall all the brothers who celebrated the jubilee of religious life during these days.


The Province of East Asia celebrated the Golden Jubilee of Br. Romulo Porras on July 20, 2019 during a Thanksgiving Mass at the Marist Asia Spirituality and Mission Center in Lake Sebu. The theme of the celebration, “I am forever grateful for God’s presence in my life”, spoke of 50 years of fidelity and faithfulness that truly called for great rejoicing.

The brothers and mission partners from different communities and ministries, formands, affiliates, SM and SMSM Sisters, other religious, former brothers, friends and of course the family and relatives of Br. Romulo were in attendance of the celebration. After the Mass, a fellowship meal was shared and it was an opportunity to renew friendships and make new ones.

Br. Romulo, more fondly called Br. Romy, entered the novitiate in 1969 and made his first profession the following year. Br. Romy has worked in a variety of ministries over the years. At the moment, he is the community leader of Lagao Community and the Province Archivist. He is also actively involved in vocation and formation as in-charge of the Contact Program, and the accompagnateur and the spiritual director of some of our formands and young brothers.

The simplicity of life,the willingness to go where he is needed, the constancy in religious exercises, the patience, the gentleness: these are among the characteristic traits that tell the world who Br. Romy is. He is indeed a gift to the Institute, to the Province and to the Church.
