Jubilee celebration of the Generalate

15/12/2018

This year, the SCJM Generalate celebrated the Golden Jubilee of its existence in Brussels. The celebration took place on the 15th of December 2018 in the Generalate. Mgr. Luc Van Looy, Bishop of Gent, presided over the Jubilee Eucharist. Among the invitees, there were the sisters from European provinces who were part of the Generalate community to render service to the Congregation in different ways. Especially, the presence of Sr. Ludo Vercammen, our former Superior General, was a highlight of the day.
In welcoming the guests, Sr. Lucy Jacob, our Superior General, stated:

«We are celebrating today, the presence of our “Common Home”, as Sr. Christiane Dupuis of the South Province of Belgium called it the last time we gathered here (6th Oct. this year), in the heart of Europe. If the walls of this house could speak, they will have a very long, rich and multicolored narrative to recount: the successive teams of the general government, the passage of numerous Sisters from every part of the world, visitors of all kind, the countless meetings held here, the innumerable decisions made or unmade, policies defined and directives given, meeting and exchange of cultures, fun and laughter… one can go on.
Above all, for the last 50 years, it has primarily been a home to successive generations of leadership teams – of those SCJMs who have been entrusted with the mission of leading, guiding and animating the life & mission of the Congregation, taking forward the legacy inherited from our Founder Peter Joseph Triest and Mother Placide. The core of today’s celebration, as I see it, is this: the spirit that binds us together as one.»
