25 Anos da nossa Presença em Mozambique


Today  as  I glance at  our Beata Maria Helena Region –Mozambique my heart overwhelms  with delight and gratitude for the abundant blessing  bestowed on our region. It was on July  1994, the second arrival of the three pioneer sisters ; Sr. Teresita Riedel  from Argentina, Sr. Marta Maria de Mello from  Brazil and Sr. Alice Lafuente from Philippines to the district of Monapo,  Mozambique. The seed has sown before 25 years , gave much fruit. On 18th August, the whole region was assembled in St. Paul the Apostle parish Monapo  to celebrate a Thanksgiving Holy Eucharist. The solemn mass was presided by Fr. Johnson Furtado ,the superior of the SVD in Mozambique. The presence of Sr.Margaret Leslie Hansen , the General councilor  made us to  feel in communion with entire Congregation.  The  Holy mass was well arranged and animated  by the faithful, the solemn singing , drum beating and dances were added more  color and  beauty to the  celebration. As a token of our service, the parish presented a ‘capulana’ which symbolizes the protection  and  connectedness   as a custom. And it was our pleasure to distribute to  each one a medal and souvenir. At the twilight we had a short prayer and a video on our mission in Mozambique followed by  a festive dinner. We had the honor of having many missionaries and collaborators from the diocese of Nacala. The evening was very attractive with variety of dances and fun. And we sing in   one voice My Soul magnifies  the Lord and my Spirit rejoices in God my Saviour….Thank you, Muchas gracias, obrigada !!!
