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".
This was an area to recall as we move to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the foundation of a book written for Children's Missionary activities named Piccolo Missionario by Bishop Angelo Negri.
This today is under Pontifical Missionary Society in Uganda called St. Kizito Children's ministry from the age of 3 to 13 or 14. That time and even today we have the Crusader activities for children to boost children's knowledge of God.
90 years ago, this was Bishop Angelo Negri's preoccupation to acknowledge the children who many a time are silent witnesses of the Joy of the Gospel, witnesses of the Reign of the Kingdom of God.
