Day 20:  Planning and sending forth

Day 20: Planning and sending forth

The day began with Holy Eucharist. The session began with a prayer recalling the past days, and expressing gratitude to God and blessing one another.

During the session we discussed about our future plans. Sr. Marides   took up the session. The plans for the Provinces were discussed and those which were to be implemented other than those of the Manual were shortlisted. We also discussed on the topics for World SSpS newsletter and blogs.  The entire morning, we planned out our vision for 2020. The Congregational Communication Team was christened as CCTeam.

We had a short video chat with Sr. Yosefina, the Communication Team member who is recuperating in Indonesia. It was a joyful moment for all of us to meet her.

We spent the afternoon internalizing the past days. We met in our basic groups to share the blessings and our new insights of the seminar after which we met in larger group to conclude with prayer. The closing ritual was meaningfully conducted with symbols, prayers and songs. ‘Creator Spirit ‘ was sung in seven languages! The prayer ended with commissioning everyone with lighted candles and a small memento by Sr. Maria Theresia and Team.

An exciting evening was followed the concluding ceremony. It was all in hues and colors with cultural and international extravaganza. The multi culturality of our congregation was celebrated in its fullness. The seminar was formerly closed with a short message by Sr. Maria Theresia.
