In the joy of the Resurrection Jesus says:

“Go out to the whole world!
Go out to my people
Everywhere!
Draw them into God’s life.
In the name of the Father,
the Son the Holy Spirit.
Bring them into the heart of God’s family.
I am with you.
Yes, always, to the end of the world!”
And we say:
“Here I am Lord, is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you send me,
I will hold your people in my heart.”

(Isaiah 6:8; Hymn Daniel Schulte)

Final Profession

In the Cathedral in Bamenda, Cameroon, seven Sisters make their Final Profession, dedicating their lives to God forever as Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary.
As Missionary Sisters: to live in a community alive with the joy of the Gospel, united in the call to serve;
To go beyond the boundaries of their own country and culture to reach out to people in need.They have spent time preparing for this day;  as Candidates, then Novices, growing deeper in their knowledge of  God through prayer, Scripture, community living and active involvement in mission. Now the great day has come and we thank God and support them with our prayers.
