Seventy-three (73) of 98 active bishops made their annual retreat on July 6-9, 2009 at Betania Retreat House, Tagaytay City.
Theme: “The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church”.

Pablo Virgilio David; The Roads of the Word: Mission”, Bp. Broderick Pabillo; “Synodal Propositions”, Archbishop Orlando Quevedo, OMI. Some propositions: Unity of the Word of God and the Eucharist; Living and Celebrating the Word of God in Liturgy; Institution, not only commissioning, of lectors; Word of God is the SOUL of pastoral initiatives and theological formation.
