Associate formation day in Botswana

Posted by Spalding Hurst

September 26, 2018

Sisters, Associates, and Associate candidates gathered in Lobatse, Botswana, for the forth formation day for the SCcandidatestes. The theme for the day was “Call to Holiness”. The day included an input on the theme, time for reflection, prayer, time for the sacrament of reconciliation, Eucharist, renewal of commitment, and an anticipated celebration of the Feast of St. Vincent.

Father Adolf, the assistant parish priest of Kanye, gave a very inspiring and thought-provoking talk on “Call to Holiness” referring to the Scripture on “called and led by the Spirit”.

At the Eucharist in the afternoon, 10 members renewed their commitment. There was also a spirit of celebration as they shared a festive meal, an anticipative celebration of the feast of St. Vincent de Paul. All felt renewed and called to walk and be led by the Spirit, following the footsteps of St. Vincent, our Patron Saint.
