"I myself will shepherd my sheep: A Journey Through Scripture" is scheduled November 18, 2-5 p.m. at the Rosary Hall of Good Shepherd Convent.

Sr. Helen Graham of the Maryknoll Missionaries is the speaker during the activity that will be held as part of the Regional Celebrations of NCR (National Capital Region) in preparation for the 2012 Centennial.

Sr. Helen is a professor of Scripture at the Institute of Formation and Religious Studies (IFRS) and the Maryhill School of Theology (MST). The theme of the talk is based on the texts from the Book of the prophet Ezekiel (Ch 34).

Since September 8, Good Shepherd Communities in NCR have been welcoming the Centennial Staff that will visit the different regions in the country. The journey of the staff began on July 31, 2011 with SBC Batangas as the first region to hold the Regional Celebrations.
