With heavy hearts, we have some sad news to share. Last night, just before our Holy Hour, we noticed that our whole building had been cut off from the city’s electricity. The cables connecting the house with the city poles were cut and stolen. For us, this means that our inverter cannot be charged until we replace the wiring. This happened in the middle of the night. We thank God that we are locked and barred on our floor. This has deeply touched us, since we are working with and for our community here. Please pray for us. 🙏

On November 21, the Feast of the Presentation of Mary and the founding day of our Congregation, we joined Felician Sisters throughout the world in an hour of prayer and celebration before the Blessed Sacrament. It was our first prayer experience in our chapel conducted all in Creole, We used the Holy Hour which was used throughout the province, but we translated the prayers and the songs into Creole. It was moving to see all singing “Blessed Angela, your light we want to be” with passion in their native tongue. We introduced our foundress, Blessed Angela, and gave a short history of our Congregation. At the end of the Holy Hour, the children received Blessed Angela medals and the adults received Blessed Angela rosaries. It was a powerful experience of sharing our mission and charism with so many people gathered in our chapel. After the service, everyone shared in a “bon fet,” with cake and ice cream.
“May this be for your glory, O Lord.”
Since February 2013, we have had a food program for our kids who come for English classes. When Lebrun’s family were asked to leave, we had to find a new cook and replace the outdoor kitchen to be used for cooking. As always, God provides. Now we have a small new kitchen and a new cook. Adelia is the mother of one of our students and the grandmother of several other students. This time our kitchen is running differently, with the young people helping with the shopping for food, with cooking and with cleaning up. This is a real community project .
