In the photo Sr Ghislaine with Sr Gisela from Rome ‘Tell me about Africa’. From October 13th to 16th, we had the privilege of sharing in the beauty, grace, and harmony of Siter Ghislaine’s works of art. The exhibition was held at the ‘Carrefour Foi et Spiritualité’, in the basement of the St-Joseph-Bordeaux Church, thanks to the collaboration of several friends, devotees of Art and Africa. 24 paintings made on acrylics and mosaics, represented scenes from Burundi and Algeria, as well as Aboriginal Art from Canada. Sr Ghislaine went around the room with visitors to answer questions. The theme of ‘the Circle of life’ dominated, with representations of women, children, dancers and drummers, painted in colours where black, brown, red and grey clay predominate. One could also stop at leisure on a painting to allow a call for greater well-being to rise from within… This exhibition was really a praise…

The goal of this vacation time was to allow all these students from different cultures and religions to serve others together. This project is a result of the presence of the White Sisters at Kef, for nearly 40 years.

What is Tikondane?

Prayer God, our Father, on leaving this world, your son Jesus entrusted to his disciples the mission of proclaiming his message to all nations. A hundred and fifty years ago, inspired by your Holy Spirit, and led by a deep love for Africa, Cardinal Lavigerie founded our two missionary institutes for which we give you thanks. Under the protection of Mary Immaculate, Our Lady of Africa, we have served you in love and joy. Forgive us our errors in the mission. Let your blessing protect all the peoples of Africa who proclaim your glory to the whole world. Renew us by the power of your Spirit, so that we may continue with zeal and passion the work that our Founder and our missionary ancestors have initiated. Amen
