Posts Tagged ‘Lizares Mansion’


I had a good chat with Fr. Lovell last night.  I consider him my oldest son. He  said before that I am his spiritual mother. He was transferred to Angelicum Iloilo sometime last July  and he is now the official treasurer of the school. He told me to google Lizares Mansion which is now called  Angelicum School – Iloilo.

According to Wikipedia, “Lizares Mansion was built in 1937 by Don Emiliano Lizares for his wife Concepcion Gamboa and their two sons and three daughters, the mansion has three floors, a basement and an attic. It has a winding wooden staircase and big bedrooms with floor and doors made of hardwood. It has 59 doors which indicate the intricacy of its layout.”

In 1962 the Lizares Mansion was sold to the Dominicans. In 1963, it was converted into a House of Formation for young Dominicans in the Philippines.

In 1978, the Lizares Mansion compound became the home of Angelicum School Iloilo.

Fr. Lovell told me that he likes it there and hopes to stay longer because he will be taking up his doctorate degree soon.  We had this standing joke that he would like to stay there until he is 55.  At age 55? That would be 16 years from now.  Oh no, by the time he might be transferred to UST, I may no longer be able to visit him…haha!
