Honouring Mary Aikenhead on the 200th Anniversary of the day she began her Formation Journey in York

Recently, Sr Mary Balogun has been researching the impact of Trafficking in Malawi. Here she shares some of her discoveries and insights: Nkhata-Bay is situated beside Lake Malawi. It is a tourist area which attracts many foreigners. Tourists came from different parts of the world to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Some of these tourists while visiting engage in smoking “marijuana” (since it grows naturally around the place) and similarly engage in sexually activity.
Many girls both of age and under age from Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique are found in Nkhata-Bay for the purpose of commercial sex.
The following article is a brief reflection by Sr. Francis Maria Monsimer on the recent Doctrinal Assesment from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Document and the call to reform the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).
Every journey has a point of departure and a destination, and the Eucharistic Congress journey is no different. As we travel we will find a variety of landscapes; sometimes the terrain will be easily negotiated and, at other times, it will present us with a significant challenge. It’s all part of the experience of getting there.
Home visitation is a very important apostolate for the Religious Sisters of Charity. Our Foundress, Mother Mary Aikenhead, saw it as a great need in her time. Since then Sisters of Charity have continued to reach out to people in their homes. This has proved to be an effective way of listening to people and giving them quality presence with dignity. It involves sharing of personal experiences with a great deal of trust.
