Fr Pat Reynolds, a Redemptorist Priest was ordained in the Philippines in December 1963 and where he worked as a missionary for over 25 years. He is currently based in Dublin. For some time he had planned to return to the seminary in Cebu for 2 months to celebrate the 50th university of his ordination.
He returned to Cebu on December 6th. However instead of a nostalgic trip he faced the carnage of the aftermath of the recent storm. His family successfully organised this fundraiser to ensure that he returned with funds that will provide direct assistance in the locality around the seminary.
