Sister Sabita writes, “We realize that the views and perceptions of the present generation have changed with the course of time and are very different from ours. To keep up with the latest trends in society we were encouraged to read books and pursue personal studies. We are challenged to shift from religiosity to spirituality, from rituals and uniformity to pluralism. It helped us to have a clear vision for our life and ministry. We were called forth for possibility thinking and through many exercises we were trained to think critically. We are told dare to dream of doing something creatively which no one has ever done so far. We experienced an inner urge to be different in today’s society as Mother Catherine in her time.”

Every participant made a personal time table to follow it purposefully. The participants were also encouraged to cultivate a habit of reading good books.
