herma5INDIA:  Sr. Jaya writes from India South:

I am glad to share this overwhelming news with you:  Sr. Hermanelde Pulm was awarded the “Cross of the Order of Merit” from the German Consul, His Excellency, Mr. Michael, on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany.  It was conferred on her because of Sister’s 53 years of loving service and dedication to mission work and Indo-German relations.    We feel proud and treasure that memorable day when Sr. Hermanelde set foot on Indian shores.  We thank God, for this gift package from Germany.  Consul General invited us to his residence on 23rd May on the day when Sr. Hermanelde received the Order of Merit. Sr. Hermanelde had also invited her family members and six of them came to witness the event.

On our part we held a reception in the auditorium with the doctors, staff and friends of Sr. Hermanelde.  There was sharing of life experiences, felicitation and floral bouquets.  It was short and wonderful celebration, with snacks were served for all.
