It is a day of great joy for the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and Bethel to welcome 13 pre-novices into the novitiate on May 8, 2022. Sister Philo Kottoor and Sisters on the campus gathered together for a prayer service led by Sister Anice Vattukulam. Sister Philo accepted them as novices for their canonical year of the novitiate. We are grateful to God and to each one of you for your prayers and encouragement.
