I am Rambie Bernardino. I was born in Tabuk City, Philippines. In 2004, I finished my Bachelor Degree major in Philosophy at San Pablo Major Seminary. Having the curiosity to live a life outside the seminary, I worked several kinds of jobs such as Christian Education Teacher, Prefect of Discipline and Human Resource Assistant.
In 2010, I went back in the seminary to pursue my dream to become a priest but it was no longer in the Roman Catholic Church but in the Anglican Church instead. I then took my Master in Divinity Programme at Saint Andrew’s Theological Seminary in Manila, Philippines and graduated Cum Laude and a Faculty Award recipient in 2014.
After passing my Canonical Examination, I was appointed by my Bishop as Deacon Intern at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Tabuk City, Philippines from June 2014 to April 2015. In May 2015, I was transferred to be the Deacon In-Charge of a three-point parish named as The Associated Parish of Advent, ST. Michael and All Angels and St. Peter and St. James Episcopal Church. While serving on these parishes, I was ordained to Diaconate on December 8, 2015, and to the Sacred Order of Priests on December 07, 2016, the feast day of St. Ambrose.
In order to be with my family, I moved to Canada in July 2017 and at present, I am working at Waterloo Nissan as a Car Detailer. Moving to a different place with different people, cultures and backgrounds is not easy but it is a challenge I am willing to take because I believe that there are no accidents in life. Everything happens for a reason and whatever the reason is, just enjoy life because life is wonderful.
