Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. San Beda College Alabang and is a part of the San Beda College. It was established in 1972 as the Benedictine Abbey School and was renamed in 1995 to St. Benedict College. In 2004 due to the clamor of the students, Rev. Fr. Anscar J. Chupungco changed the name from St. Benedict to San Beda. Since the foundation, St. Benedict was the patron of the school. But after the name change in 1995, St. Bede became its patron too. St. Benedict, the founder of the Ordo Sancti Benedicti or Order of St. Benedict, was born in the Umbrian town of Nursia, near Spoleto, Italy, in the waning years of the Roman Empire, AD 480. He hailed from a well-established family and is believed to have a twin sister, St. Scholastica. Acclaimed as the Father of Western Monasticism, St. Benedict was declared the Patron of Europe in 1964 by Pope Paul VI.show more
