I just want to know why the secretary in the church of Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro, has so many requirements for obtaining a copy of my baptismal certificate. She said that I have to get Form 137, Baptismal Certificate, of my second sibling, affidavit from RTC and so on, which I think is not necessary because they are the ones who are at fault for recording incorrectly my birth year and spelling of my name. I sent them a copy of my NSO birth certificate, PRC license and my company ID through my grandmother but the church in Pinamalayan refuses to accept it.  Why are they asking me these requirements? I just want a clarification on this matter.

I am extending my warmest greeting to OMASC coterie.

My interest to become a lawyer was triggered by the needs and clamour of our kababayans hear in Oriental Mindoro.

After finishing BS in Commerce in 1999, I found myself unsatisfied with the prerogative of getting a job and be content for the benefit of it financially or professionally. When I was hired by the Mindoro Assistance for Human Advancement thru Linkages, Inc. as Accounting Clerk in 2001 and as Community Facilitator in 2004, I was moved by the present condition of some of our poor and needy kababayans. I was born poor and that is the reason why I understand their longings. If not through the support of the OMASC I couldn\'t have earned a formal college education.

The reason why I posted this message in your website\'s guestbook is that I want to look for another opportunity of a scholarship grant. If OMASC will respond positively then I would be grateful. And if no,t I pray that you will recommend me another choices to choose from. Anyway, I would welcome your suggestions that will give me a heart to push through with my plans. I am now dedicating myself for service to the humanity and to act as their advocate someday, will be my great act of honor.

I am also informing you that I am now working for a book entitled MGA BATANG WALANG TSINELAS. A book will contain poems, essays and short stories portraying the travails of a child in world marred by the proliferation of evil. 

God bless, good health to all of you.

Hello Tita Mila! I received your reply this morning for the message I recently posted at OMASC website.
I am working now as Planning Assistant at the Office of the Municipal Planning & Development Coordinator here in Victoria, Oriental Mindoro. We were 4 scholarship holders of this association but one of us did not completed his course. Jenny Villena is now a professional teacher. She is now teaching at one of the public high schools in Naujan. The last time we met she told me she was at Barcenaga National High School (I forgot the exact name of the school).Martin Atienza is a licensed civil engineer and now working at the Municipal Government of Naujan.

I still look forward to earning another degree and I prefering to proceed to Bachelor of Laws since I am a graduate of pre-law course. I hope and pray for another scholarship opportunities from amicable institutions like yours to walk through this dream.

Anyway, I am also extending my regards to Tito Hermie Maramot and the rest of OMASC officers and staff. I am wishing for a time that i could meet you all in person (or at least 5 of you).

Thank you once again for your committed service to our fellow Mindorenos and I am so lucky that I once a beneficiary of your priceless thrust. God bless you all!

Good Day! I am a municipality councilor of Baco, Oriental Mindoro, Philippines.  our Municipality is a 4th class municipality and cannot afford to provide excellent health services townwide, that even basic medicines and  gadgets for maintenance of health in our town, our municipality cannot provide enough for the town.Many people in our town are dependent on herbs for medication because they do not have money to buy medicines. i believe that if our municipality cannot provide enough good health services because of lack of funds, we can reach out and ask for help. through my surfing at the net, i was led to your site. I found out that your association do extend some help to less fortunate.I also heard from our kababayan the virtues of your association. We are also thankful that our municipality has once been chosen to be a recepient of your association in years ago.  


It is our honor that you consider our municipality to be a recepient of your help. your help to the municipality will uplift the health wealth of the people here.


I pray that you will give time for this dream of our municipality. thank you.

Mabuhay to all Kababayans especially to my fellow Mindoreňos. Thanks to OMASC for founding Website. It is very useful in calling longtime friends and relatives from our beloved Oriental Mindoro.

I just want to announce here that NAUJAN FARM SCHOOL as it was once called, now being Mariano P. Leuterio Memorial School located in Andres Ylagan, Naujan has its own website:

Please click it to lead you there.

It is at its barest content and features yet being just so new. Nonetheless, it can supply you with the freshiest content regarding the school that you want to know.

Why is it important for the Hungarian nation... ...

Why is it important for the Hungarian nation to have a Hungarian based Pauline order? Pauline fathers in the Americas missionary work end service in the new world Istvan Bakk said: István Bakk:

 Why is it important for the Hungarian nation to have a Hungarian based Pauline order?

... The monastery was built in Szentkereszt (Holy Cross) and Eusebius became the first Father Rector. Eusebius, under Thomas Aquinas’ support requested permission to adopt the Rule of St. Augustine from Urban IV, which was not received and documented until 13th December 1308...

István Bakk: Why is it important for the Hungarian nation to have a
Hungarian based Pauline order?

The founder of the Hungarian Pauline Fathers, Özseb, whose name is probably derived from the first Pannonian martyr, Eusebius gained martyrdom under the rule of Valerianus (235-259).
Özséb/Eusebius requested permission from Cardinal Vancsay to form the Pauline Order due to his disappointment of the Andrew II and Béla IV’s leadership after the destruction caused by the Tatars.
A vision of his work confirmed everything for him and the order’s main centre was established and built in 1250. The monastery was built in Szentkereszt (Holy Cross) and Eusebius became the first Father Rector.
Eusebius, under Thomas Aquinas’ support requested permission to adopt the Rule of St. Augustine from Urban IV, which was not received and documented until 13th December 1308.
The Pauline Fathers are the only Hungarian order of monks founded in Hungary itself.
After the death of Eusebius the Hungarian Paulines spread rapidly, and the generosity of King Matthias, who was the most famous Renaissance ruler of the time and possessor of the Holy Crown, supported the order.
The order also obtained Fehéregyház, where Árpad the Magyar Chief, who settled Hungary is buried, thus enabling the order to guard Árpad’s tomb.
At this particular monastery, Mátyás Bakk became the first provost, who also has relatives living in Szekélyland to the present day. In that time there were up to 69 monasteries, although later the number reached 170 in the Hungarian region.
On 15th January 1467 the day when the king defeated Ali Begh St. Paul the Hermit was made a Hungarian patron saint by the king. The name giver to the order, St. Paul the Hermit became defender and protector of the king both internally and the whole region.
Not only were scholars invited to the country by the king, but also church leaders, which explains how Rodrigo Borgia Archbishop of Eger and Abbot of Pétervárád became prelate of Hungary. Incidentally, he also became Pope Alexander VI, and during his time Queen Isabella of Spain, relative of the House of Árpád Kings requested the Paulines to travel to the New World with Columbus.
On October 12th 1492, Columbus landed in America, and according to Alexander IV, we can clearly see that the Hungarian Pauline Order were the first spreaders of the faith, and were also the first bridge builders between Europe and America.
Pauline monasteries could also be found in many European countries such as Austria, Croatia, Portugal, Spain, Poland and many others besides.

The Pauline Fathers from all their monasteries had to meet at a convention, which took place near Buda at a place called Szentlőrinc (now Buda Szentlőrinc). The provost, the superior of and two delegates all the monasteries in each diocese arrived at the meeting every fourth, or rather every eighth year at the main monastery in Hungary.

The Ottoman invasion of Hungary was fatal for the Pauline order later on, as the powerful independent base of the order was lost.
The meeting of the order was moved to the monastery at Máriavölgy due to the destruction of the main Szentlorinc monastery by the Ottomans.
The country split into three and in the eastern region a new king was chosen, John I, who had previously been the voivod (leader) of the same place.
In the western region the younger brother of Charles V was crowned, and became King Ferdinand.
King John, who was struggling with many difficulties, requested the help of provost Brother György, who was made voivod of Transylvania, and who at that time was also cardinal and bishop of Várád, as well as being treasurer and the most well known politician. He negotiated with Bishop Wese, who was the representative of Charles V and Wese tried to convince him to hand over the eastern region.
Brother György, (Bishop of Nagyvárad, Voivod of Transylvania, Cardinal and Archbishop of Esztergom) in virtue of his responsible position was unable to bring about a decision which would have been against the nation’s interests. Neither corruption or bribery, nor treason could change his mind.
György’s ambition to reunite the country did not come true, due to the historical situation of the region. Only Transylvania’s independence could guarantee the avoidance of the Ottoman invasion.
After the unsuccessful negotiation, Charles V and King Ferdinand, members of the Habsburg family murdered Brother György Alvincen Martinuzzi on the night of December 16th, 1551.
The news of the murdered Archbishop of Esztergom shocked Europe.
Along with the murder came the looting of Transylvania’s treasures.
With the invasion of the Ottomans, the Paulines moved to Poland. And due to the increasing strength of the Polish Paulines a split from the Hungarian order took place in 1784. The Polish king Stanislaw August Poniatowski had caused the break away process by his claims. That is why the diocese of the order separated from Hungary, as well as the Father Rector in 1784. The beginning of Pope Pius VI’s breviary “Apostolicae Sedis auctoritas” stated that the Polish diocese of the order is separated from the main Hungarian one.
Franz Joseph II dissolved all religious orders, including the Paulines in 1786.
Although, the dissolution act of 1786 was withdrawn in 1790 it did not include the Paulines.
The order tried to re-establish itself in 1864, 1902, 1918 and in 1934.
Then in 1989 through Fr. Vince Árva of Pilisszántó the order was re-established, and the beatification process of Blessed Eusebius was pushed forward. Not only this, but he also hopes that the Polish order’s rule of the ancient order will cease and a new Hungarian leadership and centre will be established.
On February 8th, 2008 Fr. Vince Árva sent a letter to Pope Benedict XVI giving an account the work involved in the beatification process of Blessed Eusebius, and the other necessary documentation required in the process.

Hi Art,

I am opposed to that Mindoro Nickel Project.

Is this mining company the same one that tried to put up or operate in 2001? I recall that was an issue then when we had our vacation back home.

It's nice to hear from you.

Subject: Your Mindoro as You Know It

Dear Mindorenos:

Mindoro, like any other place will change. But it will not change drastically if the MIndoro nickel Mining Project is not allowed to continue. The natural landscape will be scarred, the ecosystem negatively disrupted and the evironment  will be polluted if the Mindoro Nickel Project is allowed.

Is Mindoro in peril?You be the judge- or not !

The pro and con on this important issue is available from these links:

If you are really interested, e-mail me for the complete pdf presentation on the Mindoro Nickel Project.

Your Sandugo,

A Blessed and Peaceful New Year to all our kababayans in California especially to the officers and members of OMASC.  Here's something which I believe is worth sharing with you--an opportunity for you to be advocates and nurturers of priestly vocations for our local church in Mindoro.  The Acoustic Gospel Concert of Rev. Fr. Mimo Perez  [who hails from Baco and is now the Spiritual Director in our Theology Seminary in Tagaytay] will definitely push through.  This is meant both as an Easter fellowship activity for Filipinos in the US and a fund campaign in support of seminary formation.  As of this date, the said event will be staged on April 19, 6 pm, at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, Techny, Illinois, and on April 26, 7 pm, at the Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Glassboro, New Jersey.  For more informations, you may contact Weng Cosico (773-4037549) and Jess Deniega (773-4181033) in Chicago and Rev. Fr. Danny Quiray (609-2719154) in NJ.  This same event may also be held in California-- Los Angeles, Lancaster, San Francisco between March 24-April 6 and in New York in the first week of May.  We're still praying for the gift of kindhearted souls in these areas with whom we could collaborate to realize this noble project.   IF YOU'RE WILLING, JUST LET US KNOW!   For LA,  Bishop Oscar Solis, the episcopal vicar for migrants of the Archdiocese,  already expressed his commitment to support the project; in fact, he is offering his office to be the venue for planning and meetings.  For New York, we're counting on the support of United Mindoro International, Inc. headed by Tita Juliet Payabyab.  Prior to these dates, Fr. Mimo, myself and two other priests from Calapan will celebrate the Holy Eucharist and conduct fund campaigns for the seminary in the parish churches of St. Bridget, Our Lady of Las Vegas and Martin Luther King in Las Vegas on March 16 Palm Sunday and during the Holy Week. For details, you may contact Rev. Fr. Rey Salditos (702-3353205). To all our kababayans,  we appeal for your invaluable assistance!  May God bless you and your families.

MS EDITH NEWSBITS +639209319346/ +639175620281 The department of environment and natural resources (denr) is now pushing for the revitalization of mining industry in the country in line with the national governments thrust to promote the said industry here. But this time, the environment vowed to involve the country’s local government units (lgu’s) by working closely with the latter. A top official of denr in oriental mindoro stated that mindoro should follow the example of palawan which supports mining industry but the same time, strictly protecting the natural resources. Penro raymundo crisostomo told that mining per se is not synonymous to environmental degradation. Not necessarily copying it, penro said that mindorenos should emulate what palawenos did in their province. (Remember sangguniang panlalawigan passed a 25 years mining moratorium … how our lgu will act on it?) President gloria macapagal arroyo has expressed optimism that mindoro is on its way to industrialization as she commended the efforts of its political leaders to transform the province into another economic center in southern tagalong region, by encouraging more investors to pour in fresh capital. The country’s chief executive made this positive forecast a year ago in her speech during the three day oriental mindoro investment summit held at calapan city , which was attended by 150 leaders from the national and local government as well as the private sector. (again, the oriental mindoro summit coordinators are planning to have another investment summit this year...)

Hi Eleanor, Thank you for giving me the info about the link. I really would like to get in touch with my kababayans. I am in Northern Cal (Bay Area). Last September 2007, former Mayor Carling Brucal of Calapan came here with our family friends from Calapan ( The Cabalerro's). We had a good time in San Francisco. By the way my parents are from Bongabong. Hello to everybody.

Dear Mam Eleonor, We will definitely be elated by your visit to our seminary for you to see the invaluable fruits of your kindheartedness. Looking forward to meeting you in February 2008. If it's ok with you, may I know your email address so I could send you informations about our undertakings in support of priestly vocations including the planned staging of Fr. Mimo Perez' Acoustic Gospel Recollection-Concerts in the US. As of this time, we are also coordinating with Bishop Oscar Solis, an alumnus of our major seminary in Tagaytay, now based in the Archdiocese of L.A., to solicit his assistance in order that this spiritual-musical event could be held even in parishes where Filipinos usually gather. Again, thank you po, and God bless.
Fr. Andy Peter Magtibay Lubi

My Greetings to all kababayans especially to the officers and members of OMASC. I'm Fr. Andy Magtibay Lubi of Calapan [anak po ako ni Rosie at pamangkin ni Lulu Magtibay], a graduate of HIA (Elementary batch '81) presently serving as Rector and Dean of Studies of St. Augustine Seminary in Suqui, Calapan. I believe your group is helping our seminarians a lot through the initiatives of Mam Eleonor who facilitated the collection and transport of vuluminous mass of books for our seminary's library. Thank you very much po! We hope and pray that you will continually be advocates of priestly vocations for Mindoro. We're planning to visit the US, April-May next year [Easter season], and stage a series of recollection-concerts with Fr. Mimo Perez, also a diocesan priest from Baco, who has been into a kind of "spiritual-music ministry" with previous performances in Rome, Canada and various parts of the Philippines. I will again get in touch with you soon to solicit your support and see the possibility for our Mindoreno kababayans in the US to host and/or sponsor this noble activity. God bless you all!

Hi everyone, Thank you for your entries on our guest book. However, I wanted to stress the fact that this Assoc. was started 14 years ago by a group of people, most of them are still active, supportive and dedicated to the Assoc. Eddie and I started getting involved in 2003 and since then had fun working with them and have immensely enjoyed their friendship. Eleanor
