In the picturesque setting of Murambi Hill, two kilometers away is the parish of Ruthuru and the Pallottine Sisters mission nearby! All in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

There are two secondary schools in this territory of the mission, a primary school, “Kaoze” pastoral center and a health center. One of the Sisters works in the elementary school as a deputy headmaster, the other sister conducts catechesis in a secondary school, the third takes care of the community house and pastoral center, and the fourth sister, works in the health center.

The health center, as is often the case on missions, is a multi-tasking place. It is primarily dedicated to the sick. Last year, 12,595 people were cured of various diseases there. The center also provides nutrition for malnourished children and street children.

The "Maitri" Heart Adoption Office is also located here. 850 children and 60 street boys are eligible for Heart Adoption. Thanks to the support of families from almost all over the world, we can teach our little ones to write and read.

We also prepare them for the sacraments, but most of all - by rescuing them from the street - we teach them how to live, to be good productive citizen of the country.

* Our Way of Life *

 

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"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)
