The Jubilee celebration should have been held at the Good Shepherd Chapel in Quezon City but due to the pandemic Covid-19 and the lockdown, the sisters could not come together for retreat and Mass. 

Sisters in the 20 apostolic and four contemplative communities in the Province of Philippines-Japan join them in prayers during this special day.

Since 2017, the Province Leadership Team has encouraged different batches of apostolic and contemplative sisters to have one common celebration of jubilees during the year in Quezon City. The occasion also enables sisters and families, partners in mission to gather and thank God for the gift of vocation.
