I was born in Klaten, Central Java, almost 50 years ago, raised in the capital city. I attended a 4-year Catholic Minor Seminary in Magelang, Central Java, after which I followed a 2-year basic spiritual formation. I graduated from the Driyarkara Philosophy High School, Jakarta, for my first cycle. For the master degree I obtained from theology faculty at Sanata Dharma University, Yogyakarta, with research interest in hermeneutical theology and interreligious learning/dialogue. I was ordained as a Catholic priest in 2005 before spending some years in Gregorian University, Rome, to deepen my knowledge on theology, but the project to complete a third cycle study was unfinished.
