Fr. Ruben M. Tanseco, S.J.

Fr. Ruben M. Tanseco, S.J. has traveled a long way.  He joined the Jesuit order after emerging from both Benedictine portals (San Beda High School Class 1949) and Dominican (Conservatory of Music, University of Santo Tomas, 1952).  His 1965 ordination in New York was later followed by a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Counseling from the University of Detriot, and an Internship Program at the Mental Research Institute in Palo Alto, California.

Then he came home and embarked on a journey that has come to define his whole life’s mission:  to be a formator of future priests (as professor at the Loyola School of Theology), to give unceasing service to others, and to keep a fervent commitment to that sacred unit of humanity called family. The extensive path he has carved bears vivid testimonies to his devotedly-used capabilities as a marriage counselor, associate professor at the Ateneo de Manila University,  Rector of Loyola House of Studies, retreat master, book author, columnist, lecturer, and speaker. 

Fr. Ruben Tanseco, S.J. was responsible for bringing in the Marriage Encounter Weekend to the Philippines,  adapting it to our culture and transforming the lives of some 50,000 couples and families in the Philippines.  He pioneered in professional marital and pre-marital counseling as well as formal courses in marriage and pastoral counseling and established the Center for Family Ministries, Foundation, Inc.  He also established the Discovery Weekend Foundation, Christian Parenting for Peace and Justice Foundation, and Magis Deo Community Foundation.  He authored the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Marriage Counseling Service Manual on Marital and Pre-Marital Counseling now being used in DSWD Centers as a reference material for its field workers.

In all these, Fr. Tanseco has been, and continues to be, initiator, motivator, prime mover, vibrant guiding spirit, tireless worker.
