The Aspirants welcomed them in typical tradition of Odisha. We concede that we lived a fruitful and joyful moments together in prayer, discussion and making the visit to the families of the village  in these 5 days. Sr. Theresa explained that In the footsteps of Maria Oliva Bonaldo, in the heart of the Church, with the richness of our diversity. That is being faithful to the original Charism, to develop the Charism going out of ourselves, like St. Therese of Child Jesus who wanted to be love in the heart of the Church, bringing the maternal care and tenderness of the Church to the peripheries of our existence with the richness of our cultural, generational and formational differences. Thus our diversity becomes not an obstacle but as an opportunity in our mission.

Sr. Theresa interacted with the aspirants and introduced them the method of Lectio divina and urged them to utilize all the opportunities to grow in a required  maturity and create a better relationship with Jesus.

We too had the cultural evening and our aspirants presented different entertaining programmes  like dance, songs, action songs etc.. Superior General Sr. Theresa appreciated them for their enthusiasm and encouraged them to continue their journey with their desire to follow Jesus, through the Charism of  our Foundress Ven. Maria Oliva Bonaldo.
