We share the joy that several of our young sisters have recently made or will make their perpetual profession and want to share our Ursuline way of life.
We thank God for the gift of vocation of our sisters, which always remains a great mystery of the Father’s love and a person’s response to that unique invitation. We pray for them and wish them abundant blessings so that they may joyfully and faithfully follow Christ and be everywhere witnesses of His mercy and love!
Three sisters made final profession: Sr Yohanista Bari Toyo, Sr Theresia Keno and Sr Maria Riti.
The profession of perpetual vows with the Eucharist took place on 4 July 2022 in Bandung – West Java, with the theme "I am in you and you in me", and was a joyful celebration which was presided by Bishop of Bandung, Antonius Subianto Bunjamin.
The sisters wrote: “We felt joyful, offering our lives to unite with Jesus the Bridegroom in the Roman Union of the Order of Saint Ursula”.
