SOLEMNITY OF MARY IMMACULATE
Patroness of our Congregation
On the Solemnity of Mary Immaculate, we would like to wish each and everyone of us, members of this congregation...
HAPPY FEAST DAY
May this mystery of Immaculate Conception impels us to fight against evil in any of its forms and opens us to joy and hope.
On this day also we give thanks to God for the gift of vocation He has given to our postulant LILIANA MARIA RIBEIRO who begins her journey to the Novitiate.
The community had the rite to the Novitiate for Liliana integrated in the morning prayer. Madre Asunta, our provincial Superior gave her message to Liliana at this occasion.
May you have a meaningful Novitiate

“GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD; HIS LOVE IS EVERLASTING”
One thing we can do is to give thanks to the Lord for his everlasting love, his abiding presence and his unfathomable goodness as we start our mission in Vietnam. Sr. Liem and I , after having professed, were assigned to the ministry of pastoral vocational in our own country. We witnessed how the Lord’s hands were leading us from our very first steps. On September 16, Sr. Rizalyn came to be with us, and with the help of the Claretian fathers, to rent a house for us to stay. We experienced God’s providence in many circumstances and people, especially Mr. JoaKim Dong, who allowed us to stay in their house until we can rent a house. As of now we are still staying with his family. On September 14, the first candidate came to be with us. Some other have not yet come due to some personal reasons. On September 20, we started English class with the candidate and still looking forward for the coming of other candidates.
Thank you sisters for all your support and prayer!

UNIQUE FORMATION MEDIATION
Last August 24 - September 6, 2016. We the formators' team of East Asia Province gathered in Quezon City Formation house with the special aim to study, share and draw some guidelines for our plan for formation. We are blessed to be accompanied by our General Prefect of Formation "Sr. Jolanta Kafka, RMI. We are very thankful to her for sharing her very self, time, energy and knowledge with us. She is facilitating the encounter and helping us to realize and learn some method in doing the formation.
Sr. Jola guided us with the inputs on formation entitle UNIQUE FORMATION MEDIATION by Fr. Amedeo Cencini. We are truly enriched by his thoughts and we agree with him that to educate always means participating in the creative and constructive action of God; it is something that regularly extends over long time, means letting oneself continually be scrutinized by His eyes and by His Word, or the constant courage to pull out one's own truth without being satisfied with sincerity.
Formation is the way of living the vocation in process. It is explicitly formative in which one is integrating what she is learning to be capable of responsible and free surrender to God
We took time to listen, reflect and learn from each other experiences. With that we come to realize and perceive our common struggles and hopes as we accompany our young sisters in formation. We are strengthened by the fact that the Spirit of the Lord continues to guide us to live the presence with enthusiasm and to move forward with confidence not so much because we have come out with the drafts for the formation projects but simply because God is calling us to collaborate with him.
In the middle of our busy schedules of studying and reflecting on formation works, we took time to refresh our mind and body by visiting Manila ocean park.
Towards the end of her visit, Sr. Jola also took time to have days encounter with our postulants and novices. She shared with them about the characteristics of the personality of our founders.
Our heart felt gratitude to God the giver of our life and Claretian vocation. Our sincere thanks to our Mother Provincial who has given us this opportunity of encounter. And special thanks to Sr. Jolanta for lovingly and patiently teaching and guiding us in elaborating the plan for formation for our East Asia Province.
