With high esteem and honor, Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon and the Servants of the Word are proud to announce that Dr. Joaquin “Jake” Yap was recently named ‘Full Professor’ in the Loyola School of Theology and has received the official approval from the Vatican Congregation on Catholic Education, granting him ‘nihil obstat’ (no objection).
A theology professor teaching in a Catholic academic institution can never be granted the nihil obstat without first becoming a full professor. The Vatican Congregation on Catholic Education vets applications for professorial ranks in Catholic institutions of higher learning.
We thank God for this award and our brother Jake’s gift to us in the Ligaya ng Panginoon, Servants of the Word and the Sword of the Spirit.
