Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Botswana celebrated the Golden Jubilee of Ann Muthukattil, SCN, on June 9, the date of Sister Ann’s first commitment 50 years ago. The celebration was small and private, with just Sisters. A large celebration is anticipated in the Parish in Kanye in August when the Central Leadership Team plans to visit Botswana.

“I thank each of you for joining me in thanking God for my vocation to religious life and my call to Africa Mission,” Sister Ann said following the celebration.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Botswana thank Sister Ann for the past 22 years of her committed service to Botswana Mission. Congratulations, Sister Ann.
