Good Shepherd Sisters, apostolic and contemplative, attend the retreat on "Mission and Interculturality" facilitated by Fr. Antonio Pernia SVD.

Being held at Maryridge, Tagaytay City, the retreat will run from April 26-May 2, 2014. 

Fr. Tony who has been superior general of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) for two terms (2000-2006, 2006-2012) has come back to the Philippines after his sabbatical and is currently helping in the SVD mission program in Tagaytay.

During his seminary days, Fr. Tony was asked by  Sr. Mary Peter Jacinto, former superior of Maryridge to teach the girls in their Religion classes. 

In 2013, Srs. Christina Sevilla and Carmelita Arenas of Maryridge encouraged Sr. Patricia Perez to invite Fr. Tony to facilitate the 2014 annual retreat. Fr. Tony also celebrated Mass for the 2014 Province Chapter also held in Maryridge.
