Franciscan Sisters of Mary Novices Profess Vows
In the last days of March, four novices of the Franciscan Sisters of Mary professed their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in a joyful celebration that was held at Saint Felix of Cantalice Parish in Pangia, Southern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. The Franciscan Sisters of Mary are a community founded in the Diocese of Mendi. Sisters are involved in various ministries throughout the diocese: health care, teaching, pastoral work, etc... Let us give thanks for God's gift of consecrated religious life in the Church... and as always, let us pray for an increase of vocations in the church to the priesthood, consecrated religious life and committed lay ministers. Congratulations Sisters!
