Final Profession 2019

Ranchi Province

Hearty Congratulations and best wishes to all our dear sisters Prabha Horo, Sarojini Minj, Roshni Kerketta, Asunta Kujur, Shila Indwar and Martina Soren of Ranchi Province, and Srs. Rubita Narzary, Alice Chauhan and Susari Herenj of Delhi Province, who pronounced their final vows on 14th December at Nirmala College, in the presence of Sr. Mary Joseph, the Provincial of Ranchi, and Sr. Teresa Attupuram, the Provincial of Delhi. It was a day of great joy for all of us as we witnessed our sisters committing themselves to God for life in our Congregation.

The welcome address was given by Sr. Albina Mundu, the Tertian Mistress. The Holy Eucharist was officiated by His Grace Rt. Rev. Felix Toppo SJ, Archbishop of Ranchi, along with many other priests. His sermon was very inspiring and thought provoking as he spoke about religious vocation and total commitment to God. He highlighted the importance of making Jesus the center of our lives and invited each Sister to do so.

The melodious singing of Sr.Sushma Ekka and other sisters, along with the hostel girls, prepared for the event - added meaning to the Eucharistic celebration. Many family members and relatives of the tertians, many of our sisters, other religious, and our hostel students were present there to witness this great event. Srs. Teresa Thuan, Maria Loan and Maria Hanh, the three sisters from Vietnam who did the tertianship with them in Ranchi, remained to share their joy. After Holy Communion, Sr. Roshni Kerketta - one of the Finally Professed Sisters -proposed the vote of thanks.

All appreciated the hospitality of Sr. Lidwin and community and enjoyed the lunch lovingly prepared by them. Indeed it was their generosity and willingness to put up yet with another big function in between the Golden Jubilee celebration and the Province Assembly. All the sisters really worked hard to make this day a beautiful and a memorable one. The community is praiseworthy for its team spirit and hard work.

All the finally professed, filled with the Spirit of God are moving out to their new mission. We thank God for the gift of these nine Sisters to the Church and to our Congregation. We wish and pray that they live to the full, and remain faithful to the Lord and to the Congregation.
