Enjoy beauty of Switzerland:
• In the month of June most of the Sisters were in Gossau for several days to have retreat together with members of the Union. Sr. Maria is occupied with collecting photos and historic texts in preparation for composing the history of the Pallottine Sisters in Switzerland. Instead of summer weather at this time, it is unusually cold and more like October. It is even snowing in the mountains! Nevertheless the sisters are starting to go to for their holidays and hoping for some sunshine soon.

As the summer sun slowly began to rise over the majestic Alps on the 18th of June something different was in the air. Exactly 100 years ago in this same place our beloved Sr. Bernhilde Roos, entered into our world. What a blessing her life would become for so many people, especially the little children. Now in 2013 the time had come to celebrate these past 100 years, and Bernhardzell in St. Gallen Canton, Switzerland, where Sister lives in a small community, was the honored site for the grand festival.
