On September 5th, Sisters Rosemary and Kathleen arrived in Lusaka and were happily welcomed by Sister Coltrida and the Lusaka community. The three pre-novices from Mozambique had arrived a few days earlier. On the 6th, Sister Aelita arrived with the four other pre-novices who had been waiting in Choma and Chivuna. We celebrated our togetherness with a lovely prayer service.

Sr. Rosemary lost no time in organizing our lives and, already on September 8th, we were in “Novitiate Mode.” We held the Reception ceremony for the novices on September 22nd.

We are grateful for the many messages of prayer and support from throughout the Institute.

May Jesus live in us and may we live only in Him and for Him”.
