THE SILVER JUBILEE OF RELIGIOUS PROFESSION
OF SR.EUGINE NIRMALA AND SR.STELLA CHINNAPPA
15th August2012, the feast of our Lady Assumption, was a day of remembering, rejoicing, renewing and celebrating the significant decision made 25 years ago by Sr.Eugine Nirmala SAC and Sr. Stella Chinnappa SAC to say “Thee alone will I love, Thee alone will I serve, I am totally yours.”
Jubilarians with Sr. Clara Xavier, the Provincial Superior and Fr. Anto Vijayan
The day began with an Holy Hour at Pallotti Cottage, praising and thanking God for the gift of Sr.Eugine and Sr.Stella. It was indeed a glittering occasion at Pallotti Cottage and Nishkalanka Seva Home, when the sisters, Senior Citizens and the staff of NSH joined the Jubilarians during the Eucharistic celebration in NSH at 9am, to render praise and Thanks to the Good Lord, firstly for the gift of religious vocation of the two Jubilarians and secondly for the abundant blessings He has given so generously to the sisters to work joyously, courageously and fruitfully In His vineyard.
As soon as someone enters the society, the message of the angel to the shepherds could be repeated: “Look, I bring you news of great joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David the savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord” /Luke 2: 10-11/.
With this same sentiment we the sisters from India were very happy to welcome our 11 postulants to our Congregation. They are from five different states. Two are from Karnataka, two from Andhra Pradesh, two from Tamilnadu, three from Jhrkdan, and two from Orissa. We organized a day of recollection to prepare our candidates to have the right motivation, discernment and perseverance in their vocation.
