Saturday, Aug. 20, 2022, was a day of joy and celebration for the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and Associates of Botswana Mission. In Kanye, the Thapalelong Parish celebrated the Golden Jubilee of Ann Muthukattil, SCN, honoring her 22 years of committed service to Botswana, especially her eight years in pastoral ministry in the parish. Having Adeline Fehribach, SCN, the other SCN Golden Jubilarian, celebrate with her added joy to the occasion.

Sisters of Charity of Nazareth gathered from the three communities within Botswana with Associates, religious, priests, friends, and other collaborators. They joined Sister Ann, celebrating her with great joy and gratitude for her selfless and loving presence. The Central Leadership Team, SCNs Sangeeta Ayithamattam, Jackulin Jesu, and Adeline Fehribach were privileged to be present and participate in the celebration.

Sister Ann was one of the five pioneers of the Botswana Mission when she happily responded to the call of the congregation in 2000. Over the past 22 years, Sister Ann ministered as an educator both in Kanye and Lobatse until 2013, and from 2014 she has been engaged in pastoral ministry at Kanye Parish and at the diocesan level. The celebration concluded with both Sister Ann and Sister Adeline planting trees on the convent premises.
