TE DEUM LAUDAMUS
WE THANK OUR GOD FOR THE GIFT OF COMMUNITY - FAMILY AND RELIGIOUS VOCATION COMMUNITY.
On the 50th anniversary of the religious vows of Sister Consolata, there was a common celebration of thanksgiving for the gift of her religious vocation and the gift of the spirit of the Community INFINITAM in our families. The Lord has assembled us to celebrate together a solemn Eucharist. The very beginning of our Community was in 1974, in the Cathedral Parish at Koszalin. The Community then gathered secondary school youth. Particular aim was to be concerned with unity and to get well on with the parents. It was another task for the youth to visit sick, lonely and needy people, especially at Easter and Christmas, and to prepare "Santa Claus" surprises; these were the external activities of the Community INFINITAM: every Friday we gathered for a prayer meeting and shared the Word of the Lord. Common holiday trips and pilgrimages taught us to build community in ordinary daily life. Particular gladness and a deep experience have always been the participation and involvement in the preparation of the liturgy. These activities are qualities that continue in our lives to this day and are joyfully transmitted to the next generation.
On Sunday, 15th October, the XXIII Provincial Chapter of the Polish Province ended. During a week of sessions, the Sisters concentrated on the current affairs of the Province, regarding charism, community life, apostolate and administration, including the concerns of the missions in the Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and Cameroon. There was also a session dedicated to new challenges.
