Father Dueñas Memorial School was founded in 1948 for one main reason : the education of Guam's future priests.  Only in the 1990s did that core mission disappear from the school.

Father Donan Hickey, Capuchin (top row, far left) was rector of the FDMS seminary in 1962.

The seminarians are :

Bottom row (L-R) : William Perez, Anthony LG Ramirez, Joseph Okada, Roque Mendiola, Santiago Cruz, Ignacio Reyes.

Top row (L-R) : Joseph Cruz, Vandrick Cepeda, Jose Flores, Juan Meno, Maximino Mendiola, Andrew Sablan, Juan Guerrero, Anthony Apuron, Norberto Ungacta, Jose Cruz, Joseph LG Sablan, Pito Leon Guerrero.

Most of these young men did not go on for ordination, and only one of them remains a priest today. But not just a priest; an Archbishop!  Archbishop Apuron.
