Golden Jubilee for Sr. Prisca Vadakepoondikulam CJ

On Sunday 10 February 2019 we celebrated the Golden Jubilee of Prisca Vadakepoondikulam. 50 years of religious life in the Congregation of Jesus, that is really an occasion to celebrate - a feast of joy and thanksgiving!  The actual date of her entry was 2 February 1969. Prisca was one of a group of 12 young women who entered the Allahabad Province of the CJ in India. She comes from Kerala and her great desire was to go as a missionary to the North of India. For many years she was a committed teacher in different schools of the Congregation. Then she felt the need to address the psychological needs of the students and qualified as psychologist and counsellor. She specialized in counselling in the U.K.  She helped many religious, both men and women, in different communities. She was called on to take the responsibility as Provincial of the Patna Province from 2000 to 2006, after which she worked as a counselling trainer in Vellore in India, being  there for people who needed professional help.  Since 2012 she has been one of the General Assistants in the Generalate of the CJ in Rome.  All the members of both the Generalates,  CJ and IBVM, together with CJ  Roman community and some  guests came to  celebrate  the Holy Eucharist with Prisca to say “thank you“ to the Lord for leading and guiding her through these 50 years and to ask God’s blessing for the years to come.

First Final Profession in Nepal

Sister Karuna and Sister Amrita of the Nepal Region of the Congregation of Jesus made their final commitment to the Lord in the Congregation of Jesus on 30th January 2019. This is the first time in the history of the Church in Nepal that such an event has taken place. It is also important to mention that Sister Karuna is the first Nepali sister to have taken this all-important step in her faith journey. Sister Amrita comes from the state of Tamil Nadu in India. We wish them both grace-filled days ahead in their religious life. (text: Prisca, photos: CJ sisters in Nepal)

"Gruppo DI +", Scuola Dami Inglesi di Vicenza, Italy

Last year in our school "Dami Inglesi" in Vicenza,(Mary Ward School for “English Ladies”) Italy, the "Group DI +" took birth, for primary and secondary students, with the aim of creating a network with Mary Ward schools world-wide, to get to know other countries of the world and to make ourselves known. We also want to work together to contribute our mite in supporting some projects for education and culture, the right to life and dignity of human beings the world over.
The group is animated by the team comprising of Sr. Anna CJ and Simonetta Vezzaro one of the teachers. As members of the "Group DI+", we want to be more human, more Christian, more friendly, more generous, more open to other realities, to bring more harmony in the spirit of Mary Ward.
Last year we supported a project in Cuba. This we raised some funds by our second-hand market project, and this small contribution went to help the construction of the secondary school in Mbizo, Zimbabwe.
"This group is for me an effective way to relate with people of other nationalities, to help us to look at the world in a different way and giving an opportunity to help those in need to realize their dreams.”
