  1. Fr. Edwin was our Prefect of Discipline and then Dean of Studies at San Carlos Seminary-Makati Theology Department during the school years 1985-1987. He was a great leader and teacher in words and example. I had the privilege of touring him around Washington, D.C. in 1999 and that was the last time I saw him. Fr. Edwin, in his zeal for service, devotion to duty, and love for God and His people, is a model priest and Christian for all of us whom he touched during his brief life.

  2. I will forever be grateful…..my experiences in Aurora were unforgettable because of him… Whenever I think of Baler I often associate it with a great man Edwin Agapay. I will always treasure all those wonderful experiences and rich memories. I will surely miss him…

    My Parish St Peter the Apostle Catholic Church, Virginia, USA will be offering mass intentions for him…

    To all the Balerenio’s my deepest sympathy!

  3. Today is the 1st year death anniversay of Rev. Fr. Edwin Agapay. Let us remember all the good and noble things he showed and shared with his loved ones and friends. Let us continue including him in our prayers and intentions……….

    He many not be physcially present but his memories will always remain in the hearts and lives he has touched……………..

  4. I’ve known Fr. Edwin Agapay in his early seminary life until he became a priest and was always amazed with his unwavering love of God and most of all his life shared and offered for the preferential option for the poor and oppressed. I salute his very short but long and lasting legacy. We remember his life as a shining armour ever ready to protect and safeguard everyone entrusted in his care. May all of us whom he touched with his tender and blessed spirit flourish in multitudes. I recall Fr. Edwin Agapay saying “I may never pass this way again” kaya buhay ko Panginoon… pasasalamat sa iyo”.. true indeed we’ll always remember…

  5. I remember Fr. Edwin in our coastal visit.I saw his religiosity and commitment to God.As he said….the Fire,water,wind and soil which I always remember from his words.All these have been lived throughout his life…….I and my family remember you forever.
    Father….pls. lift us to God
