Here is the latest update from the new Religious Sisters of Charity mission in Malawi. Sr Rosemary Ng'andu reports on the work that is developing to encourage young people to become involved: “In my last write up I spoke about how men abandon their children and mothers and grandmothers take the burden of looking after the children. It is very a very difficult situation and yet the women accept it as a normal thing and they never complain. The women do the farming, harvesting and go out on the high lorries to go to town to sell their produce. I admire their strength and courage.
Each year the Congregation celebrates in a special way those sisters who have given a life-long commitment to the Sisters of Charity. This year there were gatherings in many parts of the Congregation to celebrate the women who have been Sisters of Charity for 50 years.
The Kingdom of God is like people from different faiths and cultures coming together to celebrate... And so the Kingdom of God was witnessed in Hackney, East London,when the Muslim community and the multi-faith and multi-cultural organisation London Citizens invited 500 guests of all faiths to mark Iftar,
The months of August and September were fulfilling and life-giving for all in the Nigerian Region: Three candidates were received into Postulancy - five postulants were received into the Novitiate - four Novices made their first vows and three sisters made their final commitment. For all of these - Lord, we thank you!
Creation Time is an opportunity for all Christians to reflect on the wonder and mystery of Creation, to choose better ways to relate to Creation, ways that reflect God's ways of Justice and Peace. Here, Sr Clare Bryne reports on how Creation Time was celebrated in her parish in Cabra West, Dublin.
During the month of August the Turn Off the Red Light (TORL) Campaign gathered momentum as the deadline for submissions to the Oireachtas Committee, 31st of August drew closer. The Campaign is seeking a change in the law to end exploitation and sex trafficking by making it illegal to pay for sex.
The mission of the Church is that of Christ, who is the role model for any one aspiring to be a religious. It is for this reason that the formation timetable in Zambia gives the novices’ time to go for pastoral work once a week. In the Gospels we see the pastoral work Jesus did through healing different diseases that people suffered from as well as feeding the hungry.
