▪ After an inspiring Holy Mass, Sr. Helga Weidemann opened the annual Province Conference in Limburg with a memorial to the members for many years Srs. Maria Knaus and Gerburg Vogt. Under the guidance of the speaker, Mr. Esser, the question treated in the conference was “How can we mobilise positive energies and strengthen each other in spite of more and more difficult conditions?”
▪ During these weeks many Christians in Germany are on pilgrimage to the Holy Tunic of Trier a tradition now 500 years old. Sisters from Bensberg and Limburg participated in this pilgrimage together with many others.
▪ Sr. Ephrem Lau writes from the Northeast of Brazil that the “Pallottine Jubilee Year” is joyfully celebrated. The sisters in collaboration with the SAC priests strive to “make the missionary spirit of Pallotti perceptible and bring it to the parish communities”. Some very lively UAC lay groups are supporting them. Provincial Fr. Fadul from São Paulo celebrated with the Pallottine Family on Pallotti’s birthday. The feast was prepared in a Triduum in the parish São Raimundo, where in the new “St. Vincent Pallotti” chapel all UAC members renewed their apostolic commitment.
