A reason to rejoice – A reason to be glad – A reason to shout for joy!

The final preparation after returning from India, was to have a day of recollection with Fr. Thomas, a Fransalian Priest from Lumen Christi Institute.
The next day, family members arrived and there was much joy and happiness throughout. Sisters had been coming in as there was going to be our 5th African Conference, so we could all look forward to a full crowd for the celebration of Perpetual Vows. We were privileged to have our Superior General, Sister Mary Kristin with us, our General Assistant and Mission Coordinator, Sister Mary Sreeja and several Provincial Superiors: Sister Arací Maria Passo Fundo Province in Brazil, Sister Mary Ethel from the Covington Province in the United States and Sisters Mary Shobha and Colette, the two Formators for the temporary professed.
The day began with beautiful weather and the celebration of Liturgy by Rev. Fr. Peddy, SVD. Several priests and other guests were also present. Our novices and postulants sang in the choir and danced in the liturgy making it a very colourful celebration. Sisters Mary Emmah Cindy, Mary Juliet and Mary Magdalene Musila pronounced loudly and clearly their vows before the assembled community “for the term of their whole life.” May God continue to bless each of them in their firm commitment.
