Mary Ward Week 2017
Every year, we, CJ and IBVM sisters and lay people celebrate Mary Ward Week beginning on 23rd January (Mary Ward’s birth anniversary) and ending on 30th January (her death anniversary),recalling to mind with great appreciation this ”incomparable woman”. A booklet gives inspiration for reflection and prayer every day. Called to “something different”, that is the basic theme for 2017. It invites all of us to think about how best we can honor God in the service of the people today.
January 23 is also the day when young sisters of the Korean Province begin their life in the Congregation of Jesus. Sister Cecilia Yeom, one of the four General Assistants here in Rome, entered the Congregation 1991. So we could at the same time celebrate her Silver Jubilee. (text and photos/eka)

CJ Nepal, New Health Outreach
The Nepal Region has begun a mobile clinic in the remote village of Sirsia in the New Year 2017. Sr. Neelu, who is a trained nurse from India, had to pass an examination and get herself registered with the Nepal Nursing Council. Having completed all the formalities, the Government has given the official go ahead to this project. It is a joint project between sisters of the Congregatio Jesu and the Jesuits. It is a challenging and difficult job to go to remote places in these very poor villages in the severe cold and start from scratch. The team, headed by Sr. Neelu, have committed themselves to this new venture with full involvement and zeal, six days a week from 8.30am to 5.30 pm.
