Deceased second Filipino rector of UST, “a true steward of Christ”

Oct. 30, 2014, 10:45 a.m. - A FIRM but compassionate man, Fr. Frederik Fermin, O.P. -- the second Filipino rector of the University of Santo Tomas—nurtured countless individuals as an epitome of a "true servant of Christ."

In his homily during the funeral mass for Fermin at the Santisimo Rosario Parish Church this afternoon, UST Rector Fr. Herminio Dagohoy, O.P., praised his predecessor for exemplary service to the University.

“Fr. Fermin’s contributions in the academic section of the University expressed his ideals of a well-rounded education for the Thomasians,” Dagohoy said.
