Several purposes for this meeting of the Province of Africa:
- Meeting of the Sisters in charge of the vocational groups.
- A one-day recollection centered on Consecrated Life, ending with a penitential celebration that we greatly appreciated!
The MEETING proper:
Many exchanges that led to define three CHALLENGES for the future:
The closing Mass with sending on mission of each community stimulated our missionary enthusiasm.
Changing of the Provincial in August 2015 with Vote of consultation and expression of our wishes for the one who will be chosen
(but is there a Sister who can possess all these qualities?….)
Various information about the Congregation, International solidarity fund, the Province, etc.
Our wishes for the next Meeting are that we would like to see it prepared in Sectors, if possible, and followed up with the preparation of the 2015 Chapter by the Sisters who were delegates.
A festive evening gathered us on the 30th, when each community was able to share, with the joy and often the laughter of all, the cook’s talents, those of the story teller, the imitator, the dancer…
And the next day, and following days, one after the other returned filled with a renewed ardour, either to Republic Democratic of Congo, to Ivory Coast, to Chad or the different communities in Cameroun.
A very special grace since we had the presence of the General Council and the new Archbishop of Yaoundé.
Good year 2015 to the African Province!
