Times go and there is always new things to rejuvenate life and service.
The Leadership team of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate is almost done with 6 years time-frame of their office. The General Chapter will be celebrated in mid August 2019. Consequently earlier preparation to a successful exit is crucial. The congregation leadership team has gratefully started with a few activities already but the most crucial one was the chance given to the Mother General Rev. Sr Susan Clare Ndeezo to attend the workshop organised by the Association of the Consecrated Women of Eastern and Central Africa (ACWECA).This workshop was closed today on 11th May 2018 evening having started on 6th May 2018.
The Lord's vine yard shall ever have dedicated laborers giving themselves to Him and his people.
As ever on the Second Sunday of Easter the initiation ceremony for the newly-come girls who want to embrace consecrated life through the patrimony given by Bishop Angelo Negri Servant of God took place in the Institute of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate.
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.
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. 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. .
