Formators’ workshop on manual for formation August 24-sept 3Since last 24th till 3th of September the East Asia Formators team (Marissa, Marita, Melania, Bernadeta, Selfia and Anastasia) together with the general prefect of formation Jolanta Kafka had their workshop for the project-manual of the formation for East Asia province. Sr Jolanta at the beginning days she gave the formators some inputs based on the materials elaborated by general Team on Formation on December 2015 in Rome. Indeed very helpful for the formators to enlighten, reflect, and share their own experience in the mission of formation. Each day was begun with prayer guided by Jolanta on key words for formators: listen, complacency, be born again and other attitudes in formation process. I helped to start afresh the workshop each day with more inspiration and inner joy. It was possible to elaborate a big part of the task yet still we should complete it. The sisters express heartfelt gratitude to Jolanta for helping the formators and to the beloved Province for all the provisions both materially and spiritually to pursue this dream; to all the formators thanks for the dedication for this mission.
A beautiful image, the introductory page of the Constitutions of 1869 (copy of Reus in the handwriting of Mother Gertrudis Barril), which speaks of the “logotype” designed by Archbishop Claret and about his role as Founder and promoter of the first foundations.
The seesaw of letters, long conversations and dialogues, especially between Mother Paris and Bishop Claret, have marked the early years in Cuba until the papal permission arrived to celebrate this day, August 25, 1855, when they saw the culmination of efforts in the Foundation Act. Conversations and dialogues as the way of God to break the path for His will along the history.
Commemorating the Congregational anniversaries in these days, with joy and gratitude we are following the paths opened by Claret and Paris. Happy Festival to all the Sisters and to all those who share the same mission!
The month of August is full of Congregational memories and anniversaries. Today we commemorize the Marthyrdom of Barbastro claretian community, recalling their sacrifice and faithfulness to Christ.
We too share the good news on the mission in Aondona - central Nigeria.
12th of August is a historic date for our mission in Nigeria. The sisters Aimee Bwala Bwala and Felicia Kwaghvihi came to the house of the new community in Aondona - Benue state (Diocese of Makurdi) in central Nigeria. Soon two other sisters come from Congo to form together the community. High school founded by the diocese will be the first field of education and evangelization in the village Aondona. It is an urgency because the children had only primary education. With the help of teachers from other diocesan schools there will start the classes. There are already some enrolled to start school in September and the number is growing every day. The second field is the pastoral in the parish and formation of catechists. Many people are still traditional African religions followers and many polygamous families. Their life is very simple. They are supported by agriculture.
Everything is new: the place, language and culture, apostolate. We need your prayers, we especially ask the elderly and sick sisters. Please do remember us in your prayers to listen to what the Spirit guide us by his ways of bringing the light of the Gospel to the end of the world, where our work is more urgent and effective.

Christmas is Hope..
Is the revelation of the tenderness of God..
Is his Consolation
God opens in Jesus the door of Mercy...and it will never be closed ...
Let us fear not the embrace of the tenderness and compassion of God and let us be signs of this love where we are..
May our communities be places where we are embraced by such a love.
