The Cenacle is the heart of the Pallottine charism, and the wind and fire are signs that our life has been transformed once and for all into a Paschal story of death and resurrection. To our common path, two sister Congregations, entered another event: the Feast of Mary, Queen of Apostles and Solemnity of Pentecost. This time it was celebarted in Grottaferrata, at Casa del Cenacolo, a home sanctified by the presence, prayer and service of the Roman Pallottine Sisters (CSAC).
In March 2019, three Pallottine Missionary Sisters namely: Sr. Catherine Nikuze, Sr. Perpétue Nyiramahoro and Sr. Josephine Magnifique Barahinyuza Nyirandaboneye, from Our Lady of Kibeho Region (Rwanda / Congo) arrived at Quistinic in France-Bretagne to begin a new mission. Quistinic is a town of 1, 500 inhabitants in the region of Brittany, in north-western France, 400 km from Paris.
The UISG XXI Plenary Assembly counted approximately 850 Superiors General of Congregations of Women Religious from 80 countries, united in Rome from 6 -10 May to explore the Plenary theme: “Sowers of Prophetic Hope”.
“This is what we women religious are called to be today: Sowers of hope” - said in her welcome speech UISG President, Sr. Carmen Sammut, msol. “As Superiors we need to ask ourselves how we nurture this hope, above all when we feel that our resources and strength are diminishing. What are the signs of hope that we are gathering in our congregations? Are our intercultural communities perhaps signs of hope in a world of division and war? How are we signs of hope for the many women and children who are suffering?”
On the 23rd February 2019, our Generalate generously hosted an Assembly of 53 religious men and women from different Congregations, known as the Association of Africans and Malagasies at the Service of Generalates in Rome (AMSG). Both Sr. Honorata Lyimo and Sr. Liberata Niyongira are members of AMSG.
