International Conference Trzebinia

An International Conference took place in Trzebinia near Krakow, Poland, from 4th – 9th September. This Conference was organised by RENATE, Religious in Europe Networking Against Traffiking and was called When we hear the Cry. It was a very good opportunity for us to meet sisters from all over Europe who are involved in this work of Anti-Trafficking.
This is how we, two CJ sisters, Sr. Adina Balan from Romania and Sr. Bohdana Bezakova from Slovakia, and an IBVM sister, Sr. Imelda Poole from Albania met. We exchanged experiences, shared our concerns and challanges and began to look for new paths and new forms of collaboration in our ministry. If you would like further information on this Conference please contact any of the three of us or go to www.renate-europe.net.

New Mission in Zimbabwe

In December 2010 the sisters of the Zimbabwean Region opened a new ministry on a remote mission station called Nesigwe in the diocese of Gokwe. Gokwe is west of Harare, on a high, hot and dry plateau. The land is poor and services (electricity and water) non-existent. The local people are Ndebele and speak a different language from our sisters, which is just one more challenge. Bishop Floro, from whom there had been a long standing invitation to start in his diocese, has a policy of building mission stations first and then inviting the religious in to run them. The mission consists of several buildings including a pre-school that has never been operative, a social centre, a small church, a large hall, and houses for the priests and the sisters. The two CJ pioneers are Srs Magna Maminimini CJ and Monica Mujera CJ. Already they have cleaned and equipped the house, sunk a bore hole, purchased a generator, and Sr Monica has begun to teach at the local diocesan school. There is enough work for twenty sisters there, but it is good to have made a start.
