▪ With a specially prepared liturgy and much time spent together, the Sisters in Switzerland celebrated the feast day of Sr. Raphaela. It was a special joy that Sr. Hermenegild, who after an accident had needed pain management, was now up and running and could prepare a special feast day dinner for the Sisters.
▪ the Sisters in Niederuzwil had the pleasure of receiving a group of Girl Scouts for some days. The young people brought life into the house and impressed the sisters with their openness, joyfulness, gratitude and their ravenous appetite. The scent of wet sleeping bags, mats, and clothes lingered for a long after their departure, but happily the laughter also seemed to stay in the room where normally retreats and other sombre meetings are held.
