On January 12-13, 2009, the SCJ Philippine District held its annual assembly. This year the assembly took place in the Novitiate Fr. Dehon in Locuban, Dumalinao, Zamboanga del Sur and was attended by 19 SCJs.
The first day was dedicated to the personal sharing in the morning and formation related issues in the afternoon.
The second day of the assembly was divided into three major parts: financial matters, pastoral and social activities of the district and important issues to be decided. Among the topics tackled in the third part were: future Retreat Center in Dumalinao, new pastoral area in Manila, different issues from the District Chapter and District Agenda 2009. The assembly was shorter than usual due to the District Chapter which was held last October 2008.
