SANIS, newly opened on Indian soil

11th April 2016 was yet another remarkable day in the life of St. Joseph Province India. The entire religious family just celebrated the bicentenary of the humble beginning of the House of Derelicts, with a deep sense of gratitude and   wonder for the magnanimous ways the providence is guiding our journey. Today was yet another surprise revelation of the risen Lord to lead us to another reality to be the sign and instrument of His Providence. St. Joseph Province India gave birth to its 16th community.

St. Peter’s Parish Sanis is in the Diocese of Kohima Nagaland. It is a remote village with a slowly rising population. The inhabitants mainly belong to Naga Lotha tribe. They depend upon the primitive way of agriculture , mainly paddy and economically poor. These simple yet God fearing people can only claim as their own is their simple faith in God and the hope that the missionaries can bring positive changes in their lives and situation.

Rt. Rev. Mckenna Bishop of Barthurst, Australia, the chief guest of the day, blessed and inaugurated the convent, in the presence of Rt. Rev. Dr. James Thoppil, Bishop of Kohima, and Rev. Sr. Thresiamma Karottuthazhath SdP, the Provincial Superior and many fathers and sisters, students, parishioners and well wishers. In his inaugural address the Bishop of Barthurst said that the realization of this mission is an explicit sign of singing the sweet symphony of the risen Lord together as a Church and Joining hands together for the establishment of God’s Kingdom. He invoked God’s blessing up on all the sisters who are going to render their service in that parish, the pastor and all the faithful.

Rt. Rev. James Thoppil in his address appreciated the sisters for accepting to come and work in that remote village in spite of a lot of inconveniences and hardships. Rev. Sr. Thresiamma the Provincial Superior thanked the Bishop for having trust in us to entrust us this mission to Sisters of Providence and offering us all the help and support. She also thanked the Bishop of Barthurst, for the help he extended in realizing this mission especially for the beautiful convent building. She exhorted the Sisters to be a sign of Providence and charity to the people of Sanis according to the charism of St. Luig our founder and mission of the Sisters of Providence. She also conveyed the cordial greetings of Mother Esther, our Superior General to all. And thanked her predecessor Sr. Rosalina Myppan during whose mandate the agreement was made between the diocese and the religious family.

The school students and the parishioners expressed their gratitude and love to all those present there through a short well animated cultural programme.

Srs. Lissy Pathinachiparambil, Vinita Tirkey, Presita Marak and Loliosa Konglah constitute the community. St. Peters Convent Sanis is the sixth community in North East India and the third community in the diocese of Kohima. In the evening in a short family gathering Sr. Thresiamma installed Rev. Sr. Lissy Pthinachiparambil as the first animator of St. Peter’s Convent Sanis .


25 years of fidelity to the fidelity of the Spouse

After 25 years, in an attitude of praise and gratitude, Sr. Benedet has witnessed the same light which represents her following and the adhesion of faith to Jesus; light which has brightened in prayer, in fraternal life and in the apostolic service. In the chapel of our General House in Rome, we joined her in thanking and praising God for her fidelity to the fidelity of the Lord who loved her as unique from all eternity.

Let us pray that the Lord may continue to make her “Yes” fruitful and grant her the grace that her heart desires.

A heartfelt thanks to the celebrant, Rev. Fr. Davide Sciocco, vicar general of PIME, numerous concelebrant priests, our sisters, religious from different congregations, friends and to all those present at this joyous jubilee liturgy.
