Blessing of Central Leadership to Africa Mission

In a special way, the Congregation at Nazareth blessed Central Leadership as they embark on their journey to Botswana and Kenya, the Africa Mission of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.

Sister Barbara Flores, who led the service, spoke of the ancient proverb, “I am because we are and because we are therefore I am.” The proverb speaks to the interconnectedness of community and all of life. “As you travel, it is in this spirit that we bless you today as you go in our name,” Sister Barbara stated.

The Congregation concluded the blessing by extending their hands and praying for Sisters Sangeeta Ayithamattam, Jackulin Jesu, and Adeline Fehribach to go in peace to love and serve God and one another. They will be traveling to Botswana on Aug. 16 and Kenya on Aug. 28. Please pray for their safe travels.
