A SAINT, RECTOR OF THE COLLEGE OF LOS ESCOLAPIOS

Saint Faustino Míguez

History gives us simple gifts, and one of them has been that we can count on a saint among the teachers of this College. He is Fr. Faustino Míguez, today Saint Faustino, who governed the destinies of this center from 1875 to 1878. Indeed, when the Piarists were called to Monforte de Lemos in 1873, among the religious who came was Fr. Faustino Míguez,

It was also Saint Faustino who made the Calasancian nuns come to Monforte to attend to the education of girls, since in those days boys and girls were educated separately. Father Esteban speaks of Father Faustino in his book on the history of the College of the Piarists, who says of him: “… Father Faustino Míguez is worthy of mention, a man of extraordinary virtue and great scientific solvency.”
