Three Administrators coordinate the Collegio‘s day to day activities: a Rector, a Vice-Rector/Economus, and a Spiritual Director. Four Filipina Dominican Sisters (OP’s of the Congregación de las Religiosas Misioneras de Santo Domingo, who have their Provincialate right beside the University of Santo Tomas in Manila) help as support staff of our Pontifical College. They are assisted by four lay personnel.
