On February 11, 2017, the memory of the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes, in the shadow of the Mother of the Word in Rwanda/ Kibeho, we began the Third Regional Chapter of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters of the Region “Our Lady of Kibeho”.
The theme of the Chapter is taken from the Gospel according to St. John “Remain in my love” (Jn 15: 9). Sr. Izabela Świerad, SAC, the Superior General, solemnly opened the Chapter on Saturday evening and assumed the presidency. There are 16 Chapter members together with Superior General, Sr. Anna Małdrzykowska, General Councilor and 14 Delegates from the Region.
On Sunday 12/02/2017, we had a recollection day led by Father Eugene Niyonzima, Provincial of the Holy Family Province of the Pallottine Fathers, who is participating in the Chapter as an observer. On Monday, there were the presentations of the reports of the Region : those of the different communities and of the formation commission.
The Chapter is enriched by the presence of the Virgin Mary, the beautiful landscape of Rwanda, the community prayer and a good fraternal atmosphere.
Let us pray for the Sisters of the Region “Our Lady of Kibeho”, that they may remain in the love of Jesus and be apostles of his mercy.
On this Friday, the Sisters will elect the Regional Superior and her council.
With our warm greetings from the heart of Africa,
Sr. Anna Maldrzykowska, SAC
