Sr Jyoti greets Sr Erasma

 Sr Jyoti greets Sr Clare Toppo

September 29, 2017: The XXX Provincial Assembly of the Northern Province touched the core of the thirty six participants who had assembled at Ish Kripa from 23 -27 September 2017.  The Provincial House was all decked up with the symbols of welcome and the theme of the assembly, ‘Building Eucharistic Communities’.  Thirtieth Anniversary is called Pearl Anniversary. This assembly connected us to the Pearl of our life –Jesus.
Our own theologians, Sr Erasma and Clare Toppo, the brand new post graduates, in unsullied terms revealed to us the role of Eucharist in our community life. One of the gifts we have in community life is accessibility to spiritual resources. We were encouraged to explore, discover, and rediscover the ever expanding and life giving death into life reality with others. Indeed this assembly was an invitation to leave the surface and plunge into God.
In Eucharist, the sacrament of transformation Jesus asks us to be transformed, receive, give thanks, break and share. We are transformed by the community and we contribute to the transformation of the community by seeing and living the interconnectedness among us by receiving, thanking, breaking and sharing. Community life and our ministry provide ample opportunities for us to live this Eucharist.
Sr Jyoti, the Provincial Superior, in her interactions and inaugural speech filially made us appreciate the Eucharist  by highlighting our Founder’s love for the Eucharist and once again making us glance into the booklet ‘Such great a sacrament’ by our Founder.
The detailed reading of the report by Sr Chantal (Pastoral), Sr Arpan (Vocation, Social and Medical), Sr Helima (Education)  and Sr Gracy D’Souza (Finance), kept the sisters spell bound as it revealed the  multitude of services  rendered by the sisters. Besides these, Sr Grace Maria reported on Media Ministry and Sr Veronica on Youth Ministry. The group discussions, interactions and recreation added the much needed diversion to the group.
The whole assembly  was the result of the meticulous planning of Sr Jyoti, the Provincial Superior, and her team- Sr Chantal, Sr Arpan, Sr Helima, Sr Violet and Sr Gracy D’ Souza.
With a note of gratitude and renewal, we left for our missions much more convinced that we are chosen and called by God to be partners in spreading His Kingdom. We do possess the PEARL of our life.
