Big celebration in the Romanian province of CJ

The year 2017 is a great occasion for joy for the Romanian province CJ because it celebrates 165 years’ presence in Romania and 85 years since the opening of the house in Popesti – Leordeni in Bucharest .
In 1852, at the invitation of Bishop Michel-Angelo Conte di Parsi, the first sisters from Nymphenburg (Germany) arrived in Bucharest and, despite the great difficulties of the time, managed to start the apostolate, giving life to their charism: helping souls to find God. To support the mission of the sisters who worked in the boarding and day schools, in 1932 it was decided to buy land in Pope┼čti – Leordeni for a farm to produce food for the large houses.
This feast was marked by a solemn Mass on December 17, 2017 celebrated by the Auxiliary Bishop of Bucharest, Monsignor Cornel Damian, attended by many priests, religious and laypeople.
We are very grateful for all these years, and we pray for the Lord's blessing on all those who have been with us.
