From the 21st of May to the 12th of June, a fraternal visit to the USA Delegation was carried out by Sr. M. Celine Cunha and Sr. M. Leticia Bantolinao.
The general councillors visited all five communities of the Delegation: in Staten Island, Los Angeles, Fresno, San Jose, and Boston (DM and Regina Cleri). They also went to the Pastoral Centre of Boston where four of the sisters fulfil their pastoral ministry. Photo gallery
During the visit the government of the Delegation has been completed: Sr. M. Josephine Fallon (superior of the delegation), Sr. M. Lucille Van Hoogmoed (vicar), Sr. M. Anne Breen (councillor and secretary) and Sr. M. Emmanuela Kwak (bursar).
On the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, with the prayer of the mandate, these sisters have accepted the ministry of service to the Delegation in the light of the program of the last General Chapter: to be bread blessed, broken and shared, for the circulation of life in all and for all. The gesture of breaking bread performed by Sr. M. Josephine expressed the sharing and the co-responsibility that are peculiar to this service.
