We are extremely happy to share the news, that both Sr. Sahaya Mary Ambrose and Sr. Amutha Motcha from India, arrived in Laurel, Maryland on February 27, 2019, and were welcomed by sisters Sr. Stella Holisz and Sr. Danuta Przybylek at the airport in Baltimore, and then warmly welcomed into their new community, and as new members of Queen of Apostles Province, USA.

After a brief prayer at Pallotti Convent, they gathered around the table for a get-acquainted dinner. Our sisters from the Laurel community reported that they are happy to see that all but one of the places is now filled at the dining room table. This increases the number of sisters living in the American International Community house to seven.

Sr. Mary Grace Barile and the members of her Provincial council thank Sr. Helen Lourdusamy and her council, for making such a generous sacrifice of sending two of their young sisters to America to assist in carrying out their ministries, and spreading the charism of St. Vincent Pallotti. The collaboration that has taken place between the two Provincials will continue as time goes on. Our prayer is that our Laurel convent becomes a gracious/inspiring Pallottine International 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)

"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)
