After some years of living experience in the communities of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters in the Queen of Peace Province, the four Sisters namely Sr. Anna John Tendwa, Sr. Edinesta Charles Kulungu, Sr. Martina Nicodemus Hilary and Sr. Paskalina Baha Ombay, made their final commitment on 8th September on the feast day of the Nativity of Blessed Virgin Mary, in Siuyu at Christ the King Parish the Catholic Diocese of Singida.

The Holy Mass was presided over by Rt. Rev. Edward Mapunda the Bishop of Singida. In His homily he challenged the consecrated religious by emphasizing the aspect of prayer, sacraments, service and vowed life. He said in the context of Tanzanian Church the first apostolate of religious is to teach the religion to the people. With joy and gratitude to God, Sr. Josephina D’Souza, Vicar General of our Congregation received the Final Vows of these four Sisters. The presence of Pallottine Fathers, Sisters of other Congregation and our sisters from different communities, lay UAC members, families and relatives of our sisters enhance the joyful celebration.

After the mass, all were invited for lunch and entertainments which took place in the Pallotti High School hall. We were amazed by the patience of our Bishop Edward Mapunda who stayed with us until the end of the program and imparted his final blessings. We continue to pray and congratulate our newly final professed Sisters as they dedicate their lives completely to God and the Church through our Congregation. May the passion and zeal of our Founder St. Vincent Pallotti animate them to be an authentic witness of joy in their selfless service to the humanity.

"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)
