Collaborative Ministry by the Conference of India and Nepal - COIN

In January 2020, COIN, the three CJ Provinces (Allahabad, Delhi and Patna) and two Regions (Bangalore and Nepal) in India and Nepal, undertook a new ministry at the invitation of Cyprian Monis, the Bishop of Asansol, a diocese belonging to the Archdiocese of Kolkota, The new community consists of three members: Sisters Joyce (Patna), Joselette (Allahabad) and Gladys (Delhi).  Joyce (sister in charge), Joselette (social worker) and Gladys (nurse) work together, along with the government staff, to care for the children in the project who will be then be sent for adoption.  They also look after a group of physically and mentally challenged children. This project is called the “Roshni” (meaning light) Project. At this time, when the country is in lockdown due to the Covid-19 virus, they are also engaged in making masks for the people in the locality, besides spending time with the children and doing household chores. At present, the ministry is taken up “ad experimentum” for one year.

Celebration of Easter in Via Nomentana 250

As the total lockdown in Italy will continue until at least the beginning of May, we celebrated the Easter Triduum in the house itself, with the sisters who are living here at present: the members of the Generalate, the Roman community and the six UISG Formation course participants who are with us until June.
We are grateful that we could celebrate both the Mass of the Last Supper and the Easter Vigil Mass online with Pope Francis. For Good Friday and Easter Sunday, we prepared our own Liturgy of the Word and received communion.
As the weather was so beautiful, we had a barbecue lunch outside on Easter Monday to bring the triduum to a pleasant and friendly conclusion.
This year’s Easter Alleluia was a quieter one, the decoration more simple, but the inner joy that Jesus Christ has risen from the dead was felt even more deeply.
The extraordinary Easter surprise was from the Korean province. The sisters made very pretty looking and strong, washable masks to protect us from being infected by Covid-19 when we are allowed to go out again. We are very grateful to them! (text and photos/eka)
