  • As already indicated in the last “update”, Sr. Lucy Jacob was with our Sisters of the Anglo-Irish region for a visit and returned to the Generalate on 7th May. Both for the Sisters and for Sr. Lucy it was a very enriching experience.
  • Sr. Rosily Mathew, our general bursar, paid her maiden visit to England and Ireland and got herself better informed of the financial situation and administration of the region. This experience definitely enhances her in her role and tasks in the Congregation.

  • On Saturday, the 14th, our Mother House in Gent welcomed a good many of our Sisters from the various communities of Europe who joined the Jubilerians of this year in praise and thanksgiving for their 75, 70, 60 or 50 years of their commitment in the Congregation. The thanksgiving Eucharistic celebration was followed by a reception culminating in a sumptuous meal. Vibrations of joy and excitement filled the air as sisters socialised and exchanged news with one another.
