The National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC) in the United States are pleased to present the special celebratory hymn, “Wake Up the World with Dawning Joy” in commemoration of the Year of Consecrated Life.
Since August 2013 we have been sending loving congratulations to our sister congregation, The Sisters of Charity of Australia. The Sisters are celebrating 175 years since the first five women religious arrived on the shores of Australia on 31st December 1838: Sisters of Charity sent from Ireland by Mary Aikenhead. This year has been marked by a series of events in many of the significant places where the sisters have lived and ministered since those early days.
Over the past few months many people have been receiving the new ‘Mary Aikenhead Relic Prayer Cards’ available from the Congregation. One wonders how many stop to think about the process it took to get the card to them and more surprisingly do they realise that a Sister of Charity has been praying for them for many weeks beforehand!
Thursday evening, April 10th, 2014 marked the Valley Family Center’s Annual Benefit Dinner and Auction. Their theme was, “Celebrating our past, embracing our present, anticipating our future.” The event was well attended and successful. During the course of the evening, Sr. Carmel Somers, RSC was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.
