Half Yearly gathering of juniors of Indian Delegation took place at Arunodaya from 26th Dec to 29th Dec. the gathering began on 26th Dec at 4.30 pm with the introductory session by Sr. Gracy who spoke on our Charism, followed by the online conference by Sr. Sabini on the topic: Economic Directory and its importance.

On 27th there was an enrichment on the aspect of psychology, on the topic “Know Yourself” by Dr. Sr. Jessy Merlin SMMI. Sr. portrayed light over the topic through various life examples and came to the point that, to know God, it is very important to know oneself sincerely. The reflecting point was that; to be aware of the thoughts and sentiments that we nurture and strengthen within, can divert our attention from our real goal because our unconscious mind works spontaneously. The workshops were included to have the awareness of self-esteem. The sessions were held for the discussion and clarification on the theme of Fraternal Communion in community life. The following day we had a good experience of being out, to visit the cribs around, together with Sr. Gracy.

On 29th Sr. Gracy, presented the life of three personalities (Emma Moser, Olga and Maddalena) of our Congregation who led the exemplary life. She added that Imitating their virtues can really help us to lead the way of life which our Foundress desired we also cherished our day with the online conference of our dear Sr. Tresa Our Superior General, she exhorted us with the homily of our Holy Father Pope Francis on Christmas night saying, the greatest gift we can offer to others is Jesus. We should Love Him and allow Him to Love Us. She wished all of us to make Jesus the most Beloved in our life. As the concluding session, we had an evaluation with the Delegation team, Sr Gracy, Sr. Shysamma and Sr Jolly we shared our feelings, desires and future plans; we ended our gathering with an hour of thanksgiving Adoration and the colorful cultural moments.
