New CJ foundation in Nova Borova, Ukraine

The new CJ foundation in Nova Borova lies 150 km north-west of Kiev, and comes within the diocese of Kiev-Zhytomyr.  Nova Borova is a large village of about 6,000 inhabitants. There are two secondary schools and two day care centres. Bishop Yan Purvinsky invited our sisters to work with young people as the diocese has a larger percentage of Catholics, about 20%, compared to any other. Our two pioneering sisters, Sr Marietta and Sr. Mariana, teach Catechesis to children and young people, both at school and at home. The sisters also give retreats, organize summer camps for the youth, and lead the local choir.

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.
