09/12/2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Gujarati Catholic Samaj of USA invites all members and faithful to Meet & Greet Sr. Chandrika CSSH, The Mother General and co-founder of The Cenacle Sisters of The Sacred Heart.
For the faithful who came to the evening Mass at San Salvatore in Onda Salvatore on Tuesday, August, 4th, 2015, there was more than one surprise. The Holy Mass with Fr. General Jacob Nampudakam was celebrated in English and during Mass three members of the Congregation three “Cenacle Sisters of the Sacred Heart“ from India, member-community of the UNION, received mission mandate to go to Peru. There they will establish its first international community, to work in conjunction with confreres from the St. Paul Province already ministering in collaboration with the Immaculate Conception Province. After the celebration everybody was invited to an excellent Indian meal.
The next morning the three sisters, together with their Mother General, another Sister and Fr. General they left for this distant mission, 3200 meters above sea level. They themselves will be barely aware of the challenges ahead of them, the extreme cold on the mountains, the different culture, the language, the solitude, the dangers on the road, the low atmospheric pressure etc. Yet they are “going out”, to the periphery, as Pope Francis invites us all to do. Congratulations to Sr. Anjaly, Sr. Chetana and Sr. Poonan and may God protect them.
