PIA Press Release

Beware of impostor exacting fees for religious scholarship exams, Archdiocese of Palo warns

Tacloban City (June 19) -- Msgr. Ramon Aguilos, Superintendent of Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Palo, sent out a warning to Leyte schools administering exams to high school students regarding an impostor exacting an examination fee of P20 per student purportedly for religious community scholarship.

The perpetrator claims to be a seminarian from a religious community in Cebu managed by Msgr. Kriekenbeek.

In an email sent to the Philippine Information Agency in the Region, Msgr. Aguilos informed that Father Albert Clyde Anover, assistant parish priest of the Holy Child Parish of Isabel, Leyte, who is at the same time the chaplain of the Holy Child Parish School of Isabel, communicated to him via chat mode in the internet about this racketeering enterprise by this young man.

Msgr. Aguilos said that according to Father Anover, the young impostor whose name and estimated age was not indicated, claimed that the religious community is on a vocation campaign and is willing to accept scholars I high school.

The young impostor was said to have administered the exams yesterday June 17, accepted the fee and after the exams, left with a promise to return to give out the results. He did not return, Father Anover reported.

The OSF Sisters running the school in Isabel called up the said community (name not available) being managed by Msgr. Krekenbeek in Cebu and was informed that there is no such scholarship being offered.

The Sisters were further advised by the good Monsignor that the young man was not a seminarian, is mentally unstable, and had undergone rehabilitation.

"I suppose the sisters refer to Msgr. Frederick Kriekenbeek, a priest belonging to the Archdiocese of Cebu. Msgr. Kriekenbeek is the spiritual director of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement of the said archdiocese. He founded the Living the Gospel Community Sisters, is a the Father Moderator of the Mary's Little Children Community, and Episcopal Vicar of the Catholic Education and Catechesis of the said archdiocese," Msgr. Aguilos said.

Another administrator from another school in the Archdiocese, the Colegio de San Francisco Javier of Palompon, Sister Haydee, DC, texted Msgr. Aguilos saying she, too, was informed by the OSF Sister regarding the said dubious operation since her school's name was also dropped by the same man, who claimed that he had visited that school and that he had administered the same exam. The DC sister claimed as not having met the man. (PIA 8) [top]
