It has been three days since I stepped in here at the Seminary to begin my new posting. It was a little over seven years ago when I first left this place after finishing my formation and studies here as I head of to my first parish then, Holy Family.
Now that I am back here in this hallowed place it is like coming full circle to what my ministry had entailed. Never did I thought, after stepping out of the Seminary, that I would one day return and to be a part of the formators team. Now that I am part of this landscape in Punggol it became apparent that I would have a great and heavy responsibility ahead in contributing to the growth and formation of discerning young men towards the call of the priesthood.
There has been some amount of adjustment I had to make and the main one was getting used to a much lesser amount of people and the lesser attention given to me compared to back when I was in a parish. Here, I can't help but feel like one of the seminarians, and that is rather schizophrenic!
Whatever it is about living here, I am accepting my placing here as one for the long haul and a life that will see how to raise men into the priesthood that is after the heart of Christ.
