Grand Finale to Mary Ward Week 2018 in Rome

All CJ and IBVM sisters around the world celebrate the concluding day of Mary Ward week, 30th January, the day she went home to the Lord, as our common feastday each year. All the members of the Mary Ward family come together in their respective places to celebrate, to give thanks, to pray together and to share table fellowship. We here in Rome celebrated this great day in Casa Loreto in Via Massaua. The members of the CJ community and the members of the CJ General Leadership Team were invited. Fr. Fratern Masawe SJ celebrated Mass with us. Readings and songs in different languages made us aware of our internationality and our rich diversity. After Holy Mass we had a joyful supper together.  
At the end we all said a big thank you to Sr. Teresa McGlinchey (picture no 5 in the middle). She was the General Secretary of the IBVM sisters for the last 6 years. She was a great help to the present team when they were settling in as General Leadership Team three years ago. After some time in Ireland and Spain she will return to her beloved India where she spent many years of mission as teacher and headmistress.  (text and photos/eka)
