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.

As a young woman, Sr. Raphaela decided to live as a Pallottine Missionary Sister. She spent several months of her novitiate in Germany. Afterwards she worked exclusively in Switzerland as a nurse in the clinic of Niederuzwil. In addition, she led the community in Switzerland for many years. We wish Sr. Raphaela continued good health and strength from God’s presence every day.

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)
