Rome, 15th July 2011
To each one of you I am sending warm summer greetings, wherever you are: at home, on holiday or in retreat. With this letter I would like also to inform you of an event, which will soon take place. It is a Central Assembly of our Congregation, which consists of the General Council and the provincial and regional superiors, who meet every two years (cf. OWL 328 -329) to discuss important matters of the Congregation and to strengthen the unity among the provinces and the Generalate (cf. OWL 330). This time we will meet in Limburg, Germany at our Motherhouse from 31 July to 11 August. The theme of this gathering is the following: WITH THE PALLOTTINE PASSION FOR THE MISSION OF CHRIST. Our intentions for this theme are to deepen our particular missionary call for the Mission of Christ, reaching to the roots to the beginning of our Congregation, and fulfilling anew our spirit with the spirit of our Founder and pioneer sisters.
At the Assembly every member through her own province, region or delegature will represent our Congregation. For the first time we will host in our midst Sr. Bellancila Mukandahiro from the new unit - Notre Dame de Kibeho Region of Rwanda-Congo and Sr. Consuelo Burgos from Belize.
Since this is an event of the entire Congregation, I would like to invite all of you to this meeting through your prayers and spiritual presence. I suggest that you accompany us with a prayer to the Holy Spirit, or to Queen of the Apostles. Kindly choose one. This will be a great support and an act of unity with the Congregational leaders. God bless you and thank you very much for your supportive prayer.
With the missionary spirit of St. Vincent Pallotti,
Sr. Izabela Świerad, SAC
