ABS-CBNNews.com reports that in an interview with Wilson Lee Flores, which was published in the The Philippine Star's Sunday edition (April 1), actor Piolo Pascual said: "Yes, I had wanted to be a pastor, but my church (Victory Christian Fellowship) told me I'm more important where I am now because many are becoming pastors, but to be Christian in showbiz is important." Nevertheless, the report said Pascual still hopes he'll be a pastor one day.
In the interview, the 35-year-old Pascual pointed out that he "became a born-again Christian when he was 25." He also added that when he was younger, he had also "contemplated joining the priesthood." The report noted: "In fact, after high school, he applied for seminary training but abandoned his plans when he got accepted at the University of Santo Tomas for college."
