On August 12-16, Sr. Izabela Świerad, General Superior, and Sr. Anna Małdrzykowska, General Councilor, visited the communities in Limburg and Refrath.
The days were filled with community meetings, individual conversations, common prayer and recreation.
During the meetings with the community, the general superior presented by Power Point Program the latest events from our communities on the African continent. The Sisters listened with joy and curiosity to the news about the international novitiate and new missions in Uganda, Zambia and among the Massai tribe in Tanzania. It was not without emotion that we saw how the Pallottine missionary charism is deeply present in the hearts of the Sisters of this mature and oldest province.
Being with the Sisters was like a sip of spring water, a time to return to our roots. Every moment brought joy and gratitude. We were strengthened and energized by the sisters’ testimony of faith, by their perseverance, loyalty, commitment and strong mission spirit.
The celebration of the jubilee of consecration of our three Sisters: the 65th anniversary of Sr. Eva Hunold, the 60th anniversary of Sr. Georgis Lachnit and Sr. Theresa Merkel was a very joyous event, which gathered the members of the whole province in our Mother House of Marienborn in Limburg.
The cordial atmosphere, the strength of religious tradition, respectful mutual service went hand in hand with a joyful atmosphere of this celebration and everyday life. To our dear Jubilarians, once more we wish God’s blessing!
