The New Year (1st January) has been a great blessing to Queen of Peace Province in Tanzania, as Sr. Johnerica Sirilo pronounced her Final Profession and the four second year Novices: Sr. Emanuela Peter Sulle, Sr. Gema Fransis Tarimo, Sr. Pudensiana Melanio Augustino and Sr. Martha Benjamin Felix pronounced their first vows.

The Holy Mass was presided over by Rt. Rev. Bishop Edward Mapunda, the Bishop of Singida at  Christ the King Parish, Siuyu. Fr. John Onna SAC, the Delegate Superior of the Pallottine Fathers, Fr. Tom Ryan SAC, the Vicar of Religious, and Fr. Arcadius Mapinduzi , the Chair Person of the Religious of the Diocese,  along with four other priests concelebrated.

In his homily Bishop Mapunda congratulated the Sisters on making the decision to serve the Lord in Religious Life and he encouraged them to imitate Mary the Mother of God in her simplicity in serving the Lord. He also emphasized the need for all Christians to live according to the values of the Gospel and they should by their prayer, help the Professed Sisters to live the life of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience in a perfect way.

Full of gratitude the newly Professed Sisters thanked the Lord for accepting them just as they are, and they thanked the Congregation of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters for accepting them as Members of the Pallottine Family. They danced and sang the Magnificat to express their joy and gratitude like Mary. All were asked to unite in prayer, so that the Lord will continue to send Labourers into His Vineyard, the Church. 

The feast was enriched by visitors from different countries of the world, including our Novices from the International Novitiate in Arusha – Tanzania.

"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)
