Alumni brods from all over the world gathered at the Prior's Stag, attesting to the brotherhood of the PHI.

Raging through the night, the perpetual flame of brotherhood roared once more as Brods from all over answered the call of the Brother Prior to gather for the hallowed celebration that is the Prior's Stag.

On the 18th of July 2013, loyal sons came together once more at the Molly Malone's Irish Pub impress upon the gentlemen of UPCM Class 2018 the qualities and virtues characteristic of every PHI.


At around eight in the evening, things got underway with hosts Jose Nicolo Domingo Antonio Φ2012 and Angelo Maria Mendoza Salonga Φ2012 at the helm. Brods took to the stage the whole night over, recounting the past as a means to inspire the Fraternity’s future. As Brods and guests were finishing up the hearty dinner buffet prepared by the establishment, Brod Ronnie Enriquez Baticulon Φ2003 kicked things off by narrating his journey from a humble medical student to a world-renowned blogger and neurosurgery resident, a tale brought to life by his unerring pursuit of Excellence inspired by the PHI. He was soon followed by Brod Jose Castillo Gonzales Φ1969, the current Director of the Philippine General Hospital. A giant himself of Philippine Medicine, Dr. Gonzales regaled those assembled with a rather thorough account of Brods at the forefront of their medical expertise, each a vital impetus through the various leadership positions resting on their shoulders. The various activities undertaken by the Fraternity in the name of service were then discussed by the previous Vice Superior Exemplar, Brod John Faustine Danan Gutierrez Φ2008B. The night then came to a close with Brod Martin Donato Bautista Φ1984B leading a Fraternity Song sung with fervor quite unmatched, effectively rounding out the 4th Pillar of the Fraternity, Brotherhood.

After going through the experience that was the Prior's Stag, an impression was left on the hearts and minds of the guests, each looking forward to a possible future with the Most Venerable Fold. Truly, it was a night worth remembering!
