On November 21, we celebrated our anniversaries and gave thanks to God for our past, for those who provided leadership, for growth in community, and for all those who led the Felician Congregation and the North American Province to this day. We prayed that God would awaken in us a hope for the future.
The day before the celebration, preparations were started. Our women prepared the chicken and the homemade cakes.
The Felician Haiti mission certainly did awaken in us hope, as we shared the story of Blessed Mary Angela and the founding of our Congregation. The children in our faith formation program were invited to participate in Mass and dinner.
The day began for us with Eucharistic Adoration with Morning Prayer, giving thanks for all that was, is, and will be as we prayed to awaken a hope for the future here in Haiti.
When the kids arrived, we shared a slide presentation which told our story and the life of Blessed Mary Angela.
During Mass, after the homily, we renewed our vows.
Then we shared our joy with a delicious dinner…
