Since my earliest childhood I was aware of how much Mary and Joseph belong together. The crib by the Christmas tree at Christmas, the Christmas story, the Christmas carols. Children have their own logic; they understand more than they can put into words.

On August 16, 2021, sixty years after her first profession, Sr. Raphaela Fuchs celebrated her jubilee of profession and her devotion to God in the Congregation of Pallottine Missionary Sisters. In the liturgical celebration of the feast of “Mary's Assumption”, we expressed our gratitude to God for His faithfulness and guidance. The feast day gave us the opportunity to express our gratitude to Sr. Raphaela also. It is our gratitude for her loyalty and service to our Congregation. We continue to recommend Sr. Raphaela to God's faithful leadership.

for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. Mt 6

In these days we experience the splendour of the flowers in the meadows and in the gardens.

Fruits and vegetables promise a good harvest. The weather might be appropriate, not too dry and not too wet. And we have done everything we possibly could do: Sown at the right time and plants are cared for. So it would have to succeed with the harvest.

“FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO!” The Gospel beckons us to look even deeper. Nature is delivered to every weather! Depending on the climate, the first buds in winter are exposed to frost and ice.

A young Jew came to a rabbi and said: “I would like to be your student.” The rabbi answered: “Well, you can, but I have a condition. I need you to answer a question. Do you love God?” The student became sad and thoughtful. Then he said: “Actually love, I can’t say that…”

A Labyrinth, what is it?

A Labyrinth is an invitation for us, going the way to the middle.

This way I can see as a parable for my own way during my life.

I can go this way with an idea or with a prayer, open for that what arises.

In the Labyrinth I meet myself.

When I walk through the Labyrinth

I can realize

from what I live

what really helps me

what really is my centre

* 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)



"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)



"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)
