This year, the Junior members of the Society of St Paul Philippine-Macau Province reached "three peaks" in their so- called "traverse with the Lord."

The  first peak was the Annual Retreat at the Assumption Sabbath Place, Crystal Cave, Mission Road, Baguio City last May 23-28, 2013. Sr. Mary Martha Bruan, PDDM and Fr Alan Gamutan, SSP, the formator of the Juniors accompanied them in their five full days of retreat. The whole retreat revolved around the two prayers dear to the Pauline Family: Chaplet to Jesus Master and Secret of Success. Accordingly these prayers where part of the authentic if not personally written prayers of Primo Maestro, Blessed Father James Alberione. This formed part of the foundational Pauline spirit.

The second peak was the Mount Pulag Climb in Kabayan, Benguet, the highest peak in Luzon last May 29-30, 2013. Twelve juniors, headed by their team leader and Father Master Fr Alan Gamutan, conquered the mountain. They survived the biting cold unique to this mountain. They were blessed with good weather and awe-some sight of the sea of clouds. According to the Lenten Message of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, " Scaling the mountains is where man encounters God." Fr Alan, although hiking is his personal hobby, mentioned  in his homily that "scaling many mountains, I hope, one walks towards the center and finds Jesus there."

The third and last peak was the Renewal of Vows of 14 juniors on the memorial of St Justin, the Martyr and on the eve of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, June 1, 2013. The renewalists were Clerics Angelo Paolo Asprer (6th Renewal); Vicente Baracina (4th); Dindo Purto (4th); Reymel Ramos (4th); Albert Garong (3rd); Eric Mark Salamat (3rd); Rey Vicente Duron (2nd); Lawrence de Peralta (2nd); Brian Tayag (2nd); Anthony Capirayan (1st); Keiv Aires Dimatatac (1st); Levy Faderanga (1st); Ferdinand Malatag (1st);  and Christian Tafalla (1st). This was preceeded by a Short Recollection in the morning given by Fr. Tim Melliza, SSP on the genesis and historical development of religious vows particularly on the desert and Egyptian father of monasticism as revealed in “St Evagrius of Pontus' 8 Deadly Thoughts”. Fr. Jose Aripio, SSP, the provincial superior in his supplementary homily in the Mass reminded the group of "going back to Jerusalem or further to the lowlands after scaling any mountain to find Jesus, the center of their lives."
