From 2002 – 2008 Lourdes was a member of our Province Ongoing Formation Team. Every month they were responsible for providing reflection material for use by the Sisters’ communities. Preparing the material was her particular focus. Thus she spent time in study and reflection and prayer on our Heritage (from our founders, St John Eudes and St Mary Euphrasia), our Congregational documents (Province and Congregational Chapter Directives, Constitutions); Church documents and National issues -- everything that impacted on our Good Shepherd mission. In 2008, she was named among the spirituality consultants for the Province Teams, and in 2012 as Philippines Province link person for Spirituality in Asia Pacific.
'I attended the Journey of Enrichment session in Angers, France in 2010: Encountering our Shared History. This experience with the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity was a rich investment and gave me a deeper hold of our spirituality and charism.
All of these factors have helped me in preparing 6-day, 8-day and 30-day retreats for our Sisters and lay Mission Partners on our spirituality.'
Sessions are being held in the Philippines-Japan Province to ensure effectiveness and sustainability of mission and better delivery of services
