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.

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
