Saint Anthony's Boys Village[edit]

On March 2, 1985 at Silang, Cavite, the construction of Saint Anthony's Boys Village (SABV), an orphanage, began. It was established by Italian Rogationists priests with the help of the Italian government through Giuseppe Tiovini Foundation. This is the first foster home in the Philippines that features the teachings of Saint Annibale Maria di Francia about Saint Anthony.[1]

Rogationist College[edit]

Previously it was called Rogationist Academy, and in 2001, the Commission on Higher Education approved the transformation of the school into a college, hence, it was renamed to Rogationist College.

In this year[when?] the population of the school is around 2,235 students.
