▪ Twelve sisters from different local communities gathered on the last weekend of September at the Provincialate for a seminar on Emotional Maturity given by Fr. Arun Kumar S.J. On the next weekend ten sisters made their psycho-spiritual retreat at the same place. The speaker was Sr. Florence Fernandez, Vice General of the congregation of Fatima Sisters. These two programs were in line with the spiritual preparation for the Silver Jubilee of the Province on December 12th. Both stimulated a renewed vision and enthusiasm to the participants.

▪A recollection talk took place in the Bangalore Convent for Union members based on one paper presented by Fr. Henry Angel, at the international symposium on the Charism entitled "Spirituality from and towards the Union". This talk was given by Sr. Inacinha Fernandes.

▪By the request of the Archbishop of Goa, a committee for Migrants has been formed by the Conference of Religious in India. Sr. Lillian, a member of the executive body of CRI and Sr. Jacquine, member of the Committee of Migrants attended the meeting at Panjim. Sr. Jacquine has begun her mission by taking a survey of the migrants in her locality. Sr. Lillian who is also involved in Prison Ministry had a very touching experience when she tied ‘Rakhi’ (a symbol of a relationship like that between brothers or sisters) to the prisoners in the Mapusa Jail. They were overwhelmed with joy and happiness on this yearly occasion of ‘Raksha Bandhan Day’.

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
