From 10th July to 10th August 2017, a group of thirty young Sisters has come together to prepare for their final vows during an «international month» of formation.
In Rome they walked on the steps of the first apostles and visited the main basilicas; at Pozzaglia-Sabina, they discovered the birth-place of Saint Agostina Pietrantoni; in Borgaro they found Blessed Nemesia Valle, before continuing their journey to Sancey, homeland of Saint Jeanne Antide Thouret, our Foundress.
They come from 14 different countries: Italy (1), Albania (1), Argentina (1), Cameroon (1), Chad (3), South Sudan (3), Nigeria (1), China (1), India (6), Indonesia (2), Laos (2), Lebanon (1), Pakistan (3), Vietnam (8).
They are led by Sr. Mary Stefanos, General Councillor, and by the international formation team, together with some Sisters helping for the translation in all languages. This time of formation is an opportunity of formation centred on the re-reading of their vocation in the Light of the Word of God and the writings of Saint Jeanne Antide. Sr Nunzia de Gori, Superior General, will also join them, offering lectures on the charism and helping them know better the life of the Congregation and its main features.
This time of spiritual renewal, sharing, deepening is a unique occasion to live together a strong experience of fraternity at an international level.
All the Sisters and Friends of the Congregation follow their journey of formation, praying that the Lord may enlighten them and grant them the courage to say « Yes » with generosity and be witnesses to the joy of a life totally given to God.
