From the Tertians in India
February 24, 2018
Many loving greetings to all of you from Goa, India! We commenced our one-year theology course on June 16, 2017, at Mater Dei Institute, Goa, and we will finish it by March 20, 2018. The classes and activities offered here are enriching and impressive. We are blessed and grateful for the many opportunities given to us to become firmly grounded in our call to Notre Dame. The Good God is indeed helping us to grow spiritually and intellectually through this unique experience here along with many other young religious from various congregations.
During our Christmas holidays in Visitation province, Bangalore, on December 23rd, we began our tertiate program. Sister Mary Sujita, our tertian Director, prepared and guided us to enter into this period of intense preparation for our perpetual profession with enthusiasm. Sister’s classes on our Constitutions helped us to understand and love them more and motivated us to make the Constitutions become a lived reality in our lives. We are grateful to Sister Mary Sandhya, the community in Choodsandra, and all our Sisters in Bangalore for their warm hospitality that made our stay delightful.
On February 5th, we began our 100 days of immediate preparations for perpetual profession. All five of us count on you, dear sisters, for your prayerful support as we prepare ourselves for our perpetual commitment to Jesus and to his mission through our congregation.
Sisters Mary Sanjana, Roshni, Neelima, Seema, Joysi
