Creating a new community always brings joy and gratitude.
The 2017 General Chapter asked the General Council to explore the possibility of launching a joint project with the Missionaries of Africa in Uganda in the service of refugees.
This project was born from the combined effort of our two Institutes to make a concrete gesture of gratitude to the Lord for our 150 years of existence. The choice fell on Ukusijoni, an isolated locality in the diocese of Arua, a 7-hour drive from Bunamwaya.
And here we are in 2021, after a year full of difficulties for everyone. The project is becoming a reality and it begins with sisters Magda and Linah moving from Bunamwaya with a truck full of supplies and provisions for the new community.
For now, Sisters Magda and Linah will settle in the parish of Bacere, a 25-minute drive from Ukusijoni. We pray that eventually they will find the best place to establish their apostolate.
