On March 15, 2008, Mary Justin Swai, our first African vocation will enter the Novitiate.
Mary J. Swai came to us from the beautiful country of Tanzania. For the last few years we have been able to send Sisters in short-term evangelistic missions to Africa; most of the times to Tanzania, and on one of those missions Sister Rita met Mary J. Swai.
After a time of initial contact, interviews, and the normal process before acceptance, she joined our community as an aspirant on January of 2007. She was accepted into the Postulancy in July and now she has been accepted into the Novitiate.
Mary is a beautiful young woman in love with the Lord and willing to follow His call. She is a blessing to our community and we rejoice with her as she goes forth to the next step of her initial formation.
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38)
