On the bright Easter Monday morning April 2, 2024, in central Kathmandu city, half a dozen SCNAs (including two couples) gathered to celebrate their first Easter together in a deep spiritual way. In what was Nepal’s SCNA’s first-ever Easter together, Sister Suchita Kullu, Vice-Provincial for the Himalayan Region, led the group in recollection at Nepal Nazareth Society’s Chapel.

As differently-abled children held regular classes elsewhere in the spacious complex, gospel passages were read and reflected upon by the SCNAs. As the lives of Saint Mary Magdalene and Mother Catherine Spalding were expounded, SCNAs shared their inner convictions with renewed commitments based on unique biblical passages that were specifically given out to each.

Members expressed hopes to organize and participate in programs like holding gatherings or even picnics for different groups of people who are differently abled. They hoped to go to the homes of neglected persons “who nobody generally wanted to meet” or go out to provide persons in villages with whatever material help they could gather.

After the prayer session, which included petitions by each, there was an Easter egg hunt, in which four Sisters of the convent also joined. Members enjoyed the hunt held within the convent’s main sitting room. They shared a delicious homemade meal. 

Mr. Chirendra Raj Satyal, who has also been the treasurer of the Nepal Nazareth Society’s board for several decades, was chosen by consensus to lead the small group of SCNAs in Nepal.
