Despedida for Sister Sonia Maria Soares da Rocha

 DSCN7005

It was in the recent article from the Noviciado Internacional that the new novice mistress had already arrived in the community of the Noviciate. Now, it is the time to bid goodbye and say thank you to Sister Sonia Maria Soares da Rocha in the Noviciate and for her to say hello to Brazil for her new assignment.

 

The sisters in the Noviciate prepared a triduum despedida for sister Sonia. On the first day, they had a mass celebrated by Fr. Santiago Castello in the chapel of the Noviciate and followed by a simple lunch with the sisters and some friends. Each day, a special prayer was offered for sister Sonia to thank her and to ask grace for her as she takes a new path in following Jesus.

Sister Sonia left the Noviciado Internacional last October 05, 2017 for Brazil and she will take a new course in Spain called  “Curso de Immersion Ignaciana en Manresa” this coming October 29 until December 11, 2017. Let us also accompany her with our prayers in this course that it may be a fruitful and meaningful opportunity for her new assignment that our God brought her at this moment.

We thank the Lord for the service and availability of Sister Sonia who offered all her being to help the novices in their formation which she began in the Dominican Republic to Argentina.
