From 27th to 29th September the General Councils of Pallottine Roman Sisters (CSAC) and Pallottine Missionary Sisters (SAC), gathered together with newly formed Commission of six Sisters from six different countries (Italy, Germany, Brazil, Poland, India and Rwanda) at the Mother House of CSAC Pallottine Sisters in Via Porta Maggiore for the first historic meeting toward the unification of the two Pallottine Sisterly Congregations.
Our fifteen day formation Program for the Young Pallottine Sisters from all over the world under the theme "Be a watchman of the dawn (Ps.130) and be not afraid to be guided by the Holy Spirit. (GE 34)" - has ended. However we believe that this journey toward holiness, which took place in the Eternal City of Rome, did not finish but has just begun and will continue wherever the Sisters will go… within the communities and hearts of others, in a known and yet unknown world.
