In the first week of June, the Sisters of our Switzerland Delegature, as part of our General Visitation, hosted Sr. Izabela Swierad SAC, Superior General and Sr. Anna Maldrzykowska SAC, Councilor and General Treasure.  A cordial, sisterly atmosphere, cheerfulness and good humor followed a midst the beautiful Swiss landscape.   The sisters have once again, strengthened us with their testimony of faith and trust in the Lord, living everyday life in peace, mutual love and joyful gratitude.

Seven Sisters living in two communities still continue their apostolic commitment and experience the gift of God’s goodness in daily life. Anticipating love, attention and respect toward each other, mutual service of the sisters, communal prayer and concern remain a testimony of devotion and loyalty to the end.   

The communities conduct regular meetings with secular members of the Union, serve as stewards of the Blessed Sacrament, lean prayer meetings with the Word of God and serve in spiritual direction.  The sisters are also actively participating in the life of the parish, among others, by participating in the weekly prayers in the spirit of Taize and in diocesan structures, in pastoral work.

The oldest sister of the Delegature, Sr. Adelhilde, celebrated her 92nd. Birthday. 

Once again, we congratulate this venerable Jubiliarian great memory and clarity of mind, and wish her the abundance of  God’s gifts, so that Sister’s sense of humor and desire for heaven would not leave her.   To all our Sisters – in prayer of gratitude – let us pray for the gift of God’s blessing.

"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)
