25th and 40th Jubilee Anniversary
On December 8, 2017, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, the sisters of the PTH Province celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Consecrated Life of Sr. M. Mercedes Pineda, Sr. M. Vincent Busog, Sr. M. Gabriella Pablico, Sr. M. Necitas Derama, Sr. M. Clelia Cañete, Sr. M. Ann Empuerto, Sr. M. Grace Salada, and 25th Anniversary of Consecrated Life of Sr. M. Catherine Bondad. The celebration was held at the Divine Master Chapel in Antipolo City at 10 o’clock in the morning. The Holy Eucharist was presided by Bishop Martin Jumoad, Archbishop of the Diocese of Ozamis and concelebrated by some of the SSP Priests and a Diocesan priest from Antipolo. In his homily, Bishop Jumoad reiterated the importance and beauty of the three evangelical vows, highlighting that the vow of obedience is the most important. The good Bishop was also delighted by the invitation of the sisters since one of the Jubilarians, Sr. M. Necitas Derama, was his former high school teacher.
The celebration was graced by the presence of the Superior General, Sr. M. Micaela Monetti and General Councilor, Sr. M. Giovanna Uchino, some members of the Pauline Family, family of the Sister Jubilarians, friends, benefactors and sisters from their respective communities.
We thank and praise the Lord for, indeed, His faithful love sustained and is continuously sustaining them in their wonderful journey.
