“It was in the Philippine General Hospital, I was still working back then and I got invited to join one of their meals and I heard the laughter of the Jesuits and it just felt so real and alive, everyone was so alive, everyone was so happy, everyone was so at peace with themselves, and at that moment, I desired I also want to be like them, how happy they are, how free they are…when I was walking back home, I told myself, Lord if its your will I would want to become a Jesuit.” – Bro. James Santos, SJ
Bro. James Santos, SJ shares his first encounter with the Jesuits at the UP PGH Chapel and The Chaplaincy. After attending one Sunday mass, he was invited to join them for lunch. This encounter led Bro. James to discern his vocation to the Society of Jesus.
Bro. James is currently finishing his MA in Education at the Ateneo de Manila University. He will join the Sacred Heart School – Ateneo de Cebu community this December for his regency assignment. He will teach Catholic Social Teachings at the Senior High School Department.
