The USW Province celebrated the Jubilarians of 2016. A good number of confreres gathered togethed at Riverside Residence on September 8th, Thursday to celebrate the Jubilarians. The celebration began with Eucharist. Melvin James was the main celebrant and Jesus Briones the primary homilist. The rest of the Jubilarians concelebrated. They all shared about their life in the Society. Jesus in his homily took the example of chopsticks to share about the importance of community life.
