The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord makes his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Dear Sister Izabela,
As you celebrate your Feast Day I, as well as the sisters from Queen of Apostles Province, wish you a day of quiet reflection on the protection you enjoy from your patron, and the love and blessings from the Lord. May your day be filled with happiness, joyful music, and the special graces needed as you continue to serve our Congregation.
Sending Prayers and Best Wishes
Sr. Mary Grace and Sisters
Pilgrimages have a long Christian tradition. For centuries people have taken the trouble to make a pilgrimage to the holy places around the world on foot. Pilgrimages are also permanently present in the Polish culture and its landscape. Many of our Sisters also walked hundreds of kilometers this year, wandering with thousands of pilgrims to the national shrine of Our Lady in Częstochowa. Prayer and sacrifice, rain and sun, joy and pain set the rhythm on the pilgrim route.
Our identity as Pallottines is Missionary. To train missionaries to find resources for their many development projects a Seminar on Mission Animation and Fundraising was organised by the General Secretariat for the Missions of the Society, in collaboration with the two Congregations of the Pallottine Sisters. It was held at the Pallottine Fathers’ House in Via Ferari, Rome, from July 2nd to 6th 2018.
