May 31, we celebrated in our house in Hayama the Visitation of the Virgin Mary, the birthday of Mother Candida, the Golden Anniversary of the Religious Life of our Sister, Asuncion Ohata and the end of the CGXVIII. A lot of reasons to give thanks to God!

 

Aside from us, nineteen Hijas de Jesus, various Christians from our parish who know and love Mother Candida, some of them who attended her canonization in Rome, the Director of the Pre-School, a group of teachers, friends and acquaintances attended the celebration. All in all, we were around fifty.

The Eucharist was very well prepared, presided by our former parish priest, Fr. Hosoi. It was followed by simple snacks consisting of typical pastries from Brazil and the Philippines which our Japanese guests are not really familiar with. The interaction was joyful and the atmosphere, familial. The teachers from the Pre-School made the atmosphere even more pleasant by singing two songs about Mother Candida composed by our Sister, Angeles Kaneko.
May 31 was a simple celebration, but full of significance.
