MARY of Assumption sisters will make their first vows on March 26 at the Nazareth Apostolic Centre at Tenaru and Archbishop Christopher Michael Cardone op will celebrate the Holy Eucharist.
This is according to Catholic Church media officer, Mr Joe Vidiki who expressed that Sisters Judith Roko and Agnes Kaora had completed three years of formation after undergoing studies at NAC Tenaru.
Shedding light on their journey, he said that they began their mission at Ruavatu parish and were later transferred to Nazareth Apostolic Centre (NAC) at Tenaru.
Mr Vidiki said that since then, they have assisted in the formation of lay catechists, Sunday school teachers, pre-seminarian students and also reached out to seminarians as well as to women and men’s groups.
“The mission work was great, the experience with people was so deep and the call is so compelling. So they dare to begin the formation of our young local women who also dared to entrust their lives to participate in the mission of the church,”, he said.
Vidiki added that the theme of the Eucharist celebration is “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it”.
“Archbishop Michael Cardone op will be at NAC Tenaru for the Eucharistic celebration and preside the first vows of the two first Mary of Assumption local sisters. Sisters Judith Roko (ma) of Tamboko Tanagai parish and Agnes Kaora of Makina parish (Marau sound),”,he said.
