The theme of the jubilee was “The Lord has done marvels for us.”
Indeed, "we remember.... we celebrate.... we believe....."!
Providing much joy, warmth, and a sense of the One Body was a significant number of RSCJ who came from provinces with direct connections to the Philippine foundation: the Japan province where the first Filipina RSCJ entered the Society and which continues to have close ties with the Philippines, the Korea-Chinese province with ongoing collaboration in formation and mission, the Indonesia Area leadership team; and representatives from the USC and ANZ Provinces, and the new missions of the ASIANZ Region.
The communities in Cebu and Ormoc also had celebrations before the 24th, while the SHIFT community in Northern Samar carried on the festivities on the 27th even without the RSCJ whose flight was cancelled due to bad weather. Truly the Society charism and mission continue through the Sacred Heart Family.
