First and Final Professions in Sacred Heart School, Hulhundu

3rd May 2024 was a day of twin celebration and double joy for Ranchi Province. On this day, three of our tertians – Sister Any Kandulna, Sister Roshline Kullu and Sister Suchita Ekka – made their final profession and five of our senior novices – Madhuri Kerketta, Nilima Lomga, Jasmati Hembrom, Anjana Soy and Asunta Lugun – made their first profession during the Holy Eucharist at Sacred Heart school auditorium, Hulhundu. Most Rev. Vincent Aind, Archbishop of Ranchi Archdiocese, officiated the solemn Eucharist along with twelve other priests. The theme of the occasion was “I in them and You in me’’ (Jn 17:23).

The Tertians and the novices were well prepared by their mistresses, Sister Lilly, the junior mistress, and Sister Rashmi Kerketta, the novice mistress, to offer themselves totally to the Lord and for His service in the Church. They pronounced the vows with courage and conviction. Our Provincial Superior, Sister Sushma Beck, received their vows in the name of the Church. Many SCJMs, the family members, relatives of the sisters and novices were present on this occasion in a spirit of thanksgiving, to witness and share the joy of these new brides.

The choir led by Sisters Alexia Kerketta and Rita Beck and the entrance dance performed by our postulants made the liturgy more devotional and lively. The presence of postulants was a great help for the community in the preparation and success of the event. Sister Davies and community prepared and served a sumptuous meal which all enjoyed.

Dear Sisters, as we thank God for the gift of each one of you to the Church and to the Congregation, we wish you all the best and God’s abundant blessings for a happy religious life ahead. May the Love of God guide and direct you in your service to Him and may He give you strength and courage to live the life that you have chosen.

Sister Elsy Cherian
