Twenty-four SCNs are attending the Inter Province Renewal Program, organized by the Ongoing Formation Team, at Jharna Spirituality Center, Ranchi, from May 20-31.

The program commenced on May 20 with a welcome ritual and prayer. It was followed by reflections on significant milestones and blessings in each one’s life journey as a Sister of Charity of Nazareth, facilitated by SCNs Josita Eniakattu and Reena Theruvankunnel. From May 21, Sister Tessy Churanad, Holy Cross, Hazaribagh, was the resource person for the five-day workshop on “Integrated Growth and Personal Transformation.” One of the objectives of the workshop is to assist the participants in creating balance and harmony between different aspects/dimensions of a person. Through input, group interactions, and personal reflection, Sisters are helped to a deeper understanding of self-transcendence and moving beyond, thus embracing the other–centered and theocentric transcendence.

Another objective is understanding the concept of true freedom as children of God and the process of growing in this area through the right choices at the right time based on values and convictions.

The workshop will be followed by a five-day retreat May 26-31 directed by Fr. Anil Dang S.J.

All are grateful for this opportunity for self–renewal, the pleasant weather, and the refreshing environment. We request your prayerful support for our sisters as they go through a journey of spiritual renewal and the ongoing process of self-transformation
