About Epistoliorum

Epistoliorum, published quarterly, is the official publication of Filii Sancti Dominici Philippinensis International. The term, though based in Latin, is coined from the phrase “Epistolae Filiorum”, translated as “letters (or messages) of the sons”. Epistoliorum will contain ideas, facts, essays, insights, milestones, imageries, statistics, social, technological, business and religious trends and other informative details for the consumption of its captive audience. Epistoliorum operating under the Filii flagship is apolitical, designed to cater to diverse moods and appeal to many discriminating levels of intellect.


Filii Sancti Dominici Philippinensis International (FSDPI), or more affectionately the “Filii”, translates as: “the sons of Saint Dominic in the Philippines”. It is an organization of men, brothers in faith, who have undergone and received formal religious training in the Dominican life and Spirituality under the Dominican Province of the Philippines. We form a community of men who have willed to continue to profess, live and share, in the world of the laity, the apostolic vision and mission of our blessed father St. Dominic de Guzman whose patronage the “Filii” is entrusted under.
