TEMPORARY VOW SISTERS SEMINAR February 2015

On the 12th of February, all the temporary professed Sisters in the Province gathered in Maryland for their first Seminar for the year 2015. The seminar which was facilitaed by Rev. Fr. Anthony Ewherido, was based on Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation "Evangelii Gaudium" - "The Joy of he Gospel". In this Exhortation, the Pope encourages the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Churchs' journey in years to come. At the end of the two days seminar, all the 20 participants were presented with a lighted candle each and commissioned to go out to be Spirit-filled evangelizers.
