The University of the Philippines College of Medicine Batch 1990 has invited Fr. Gregory Ramon D. GASTON, Rector of the Pontificio Collegio Filippino in Rome, to give his Advent reflections in a webinar to be held on Friday December 6, 2019. CPD and CME credits are available (see bottom of this page on how to register for free).


  • To understand the spiritual dimension of illness.
  • To deepen one’s faith in the midst of suffering.
  • To discern the power of prayer in healing.

The regular webinars are at the same time opportunities to know more about the Collegio, the “Home in Rome” for Filipino priests doing further studies.

When the priests return after two to four years, they are assigned to the seminaries and other special ministries, including health-related apostolates such as hospital chaplaincies, bioethics committees, orphanages, feeding programs, drug rehabilitation, care for abandoned children and elderly, and so on.

For this reason, supporting the Collegio is a concrete way of helping our country. In need of particular assistance at present is the Collegio Library, hopefully soon to be renovated with your help. It will focus on Filipiniana books and journals, especially when it comes to Philippine religiosity and related themes, such as culture, history, and society as a whole. (For details on the Collegio, please visit www.pcfroma.org.)
