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.”
