It is so moving to keep on posting sad news of an untimely demise of our sisters. But it is a reality of our commitment to become a religious to serve God love him in the vulnerable he gave to our care and thereafter go to him for our reward in eternity.Each time it happens we want to love God more and dedicate our service to His family through all who are in our care.
This time we had Sr. Alice Amal called; an active vibrant Nun who demised after a simple successful surgery in which she appeared to have been recovering but after a day and half she passed on to eternity on Thursday 1st March 2018 at 10.20 am.
Sr. Alice shall be remembers for several positive commitments and attitudes she showed. She never gives fear to anyone , her jollity and similes will not be forgotten, her commitment and dedication to treat and attend to patients and guest was impressive, her sense of humor was lightening heavy and difficult moments for many of us. Her frank and honest ways of calling a spade a spade was unique and she did it with gentleness mixed with smiles that no one would feel it a reproach. She was a leader and a mother for many.She helped the leadership team on several issues of the growth of the Institute.
For serious reason in which we lost one of our children with impairments found dead in a pit we could not have the burial ceremony of our beloved Sr.Agnes Akello Number 11 in the Institute of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu. She served with dedication as a religious for 71 years.
Sr Agnes was born on 10th February 1921 , Baptized three days later on 13 the February 1921. She was among the first Christians to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion in Ediofe Parish in Arua Diocese which Parish will celebrate its Centenary in 2019.
Sr. Agnes missed her "Cente" (100) age by 3 years. She demised after a serious health breakdown on 14th February 2018 at 7 am on Ash Wednesday. She served in 31 convents.
Sr. Luija Orochi left us to go to her Father House on Christmas Night at 7.30 am. She was admitted palliative state on 13th November 2017.She died a ripe age of 83.
The Requiem Mass for her was led by Rev. Fr. Lawrence Dr. Komakec, Episcopal Vicar Gulu and Parish Priest of St Joseph's Cathedral Gulu Archdiocese. Fr. Komakec in his homely shared the life he lived in Amuru Parish during the insurgencies of Alice Lakwena and how they were abducted and suffered a lot in the bush. Sr Luija was present.
Sr. Luija had a very rich history read from her urology and Fr Lawrence recognized that from her early age she did not turn her back to the Lord but lived her life fully and entirely for him. The letter of St Paul to Timothy said all who dedicate their lives to serve and honor the Lord will be rewarded by the Lord. Sr Luija spent her energy until she could not because of age and recent body ailments. Her Baptism and religious profession made her grew close to God at all times. .
Sr Maria Jizelda Adirua of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate went to eternity on 18th December 2017 at 10.30 pm in St. Mary 's Hospital Lacor. Her body was laid to rest at Gulu after a solemn requem Mass by His Grace John Baptist Odama, the Ordinary of Gulu Archdiocese.
Yes. The positive response to the vocations received in the congregations each year is a proof. We believe God is in control of everything, He makes sure His work on earth must not stop.
Any family in the world will never be happy if the family does not have a child or a new generation, that means there's no continuation in that family. On the same note the Congregation of the Little Sister of Mary Immaculate would close down if there are no new members joining.
November is a strong month of belonging to Bishop Angelo Negri Founder of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu and the Little Brothers of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Lodonga.
The Heavenly Birthday of Bishop Angelo Negri is 11th November 1949 and the His Birthday on Earth is 19th November 1889. This year was his 126th birthday. He passed on to the next world when he was a week to clock 60 years of age. This time the occasion was celebrated in his home village called Tres in Trento-Italy.
The Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate witnessed a historical day when 10 of their junior Sisters renewed Vows and 40 young women took steps to embrace the religious life. The colourful event took place at Gulu on 7th December 2017.
For the church, particularly for our Institute, the event marks a revitalization for the spread of the Joy of the Gospel, the New Evengalization St John Paul II exhorted in "Vita Consecrata" and Pope Francis in the declaration of the Year of Consecrated Life in 5015 said the Consecrated should "Wake Up the World".
