Pre-novice director, Anice Vattukulam, SCN organized a prayer service during which Philomena Kottoor, SCN, provincial of Patna province, officially invited pre-novices Dipti Rani Nayak, Kancharia Sujatha, Salomi Hembrom, Susmita Dundung, Vasimalla Swarnalatha and Velpula Sarala to join the canonical year of novitiate in Mokama on May 5, 2019.
Sister Philomena presented them each a chain with the medal of Mother Catherine Spalding. Amelia Moras, SCN, vice provincial gave them a copy of the SCN Constitutions. The second-year novices welcomed them with an aarati, tikka, and a flower. The entire campus of Sisters, novices, and candidates joined in the historic moment of these young vibrant women who have said “yes” to the special call of God to live a life of intense prayer, study, and preparation in the coming next two years. As a welcoming to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, all present had a photo with the first-year novices followed by lunch.
Congratulations dear novices and may the prayers of all Sisters accompany you especially as you walk this journey of life in faith.
Malini Manjoly, SCN
