40TH JUBILLEE CELEBRATION
“The Lord is my strength, I thank HIM with all my heart”
On August 15, 2011, feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, our two sisters, Sr. Augustine Paderna, SDS and Sr. Geraldine Avila,SDS celebrated their 40th year of religious profession with the sisters in the Region. It was a momentous event not only for the 2 sisters but for all the Salvatorian sisters in the Philippines. We thank GOD for the gift of vocation of Sr. Gus and Sr. Gerald and their perseverance to a committed life with Jesus.
REGIONAL ANNUAL RETREAT 2011
The sisters had their annual retreat at the Divine Savior convent, New Manila, Quezon City from May 2-8, 2011. The theme was: "IT IS THE LORD!" It was taken from the passage of John’s Gospel: John 21:1-8. Lebanon Shelter was the venue for the conferences and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Fr. Paulo Gamboa, OCD was this year’s retreat master. All the sisters were able to participate in this most –eagerly awaited spiritual journey which takes place only once a year. Fr. Paulo emphasized that only intimacy and knowledge of the Lord will help us recognize Him. That is why John was the only one among the disciples who was able to recognize the Lord when He appeared to them... “It is the LORD!”
