IHM Sisters organise Coorporate Retreat for Congregational Administrators

The block meeting of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Christ took off with Mass celebrated at the Madonna Renewal Centre Chapel, Nkpor on October 27, 2012. The meeting brought together all the Regional functionaries of the Congregation from within and outside Nigeria.

In his sermon, Rev. Fr. Winifred Chinwetalu, a Redemptorist priest, congratulated the Sisters for their 75 years of existence and positive impact in evangelization not just in Nigeria but all through the world. He urged the sisters who form the leadership of the Congregation to be conscious of the responsibility entrusted to them.  She reminded the sisters that the Father Founder, Archbishop Charles Heerey, was inspired by the Holy Spirit to found the Congregation for a particular work in the Church. The Superiors therefore share the same spirit through prayer. As leaders therefore, they are to eschew arbitrariness and favouritism which can undermine the gains of leadership.  She urged the Sisters to pay attention to principles and good values, and to keep up the legacies which have sustained the Congregation till this date.  

The Sisters paid a courtesy visit to the Elderly Sisters’ home. The Elderly Sisters were overjoyed at seeing the young Administrative team and promised to support the team with their prayers. The team moved on to the Compassionate Home where they visited the motherless and abandoned babies and children, the Elderly women and pregnant girls.

There was then a visit to the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity where the Sisters offered special prayers at the grave of Archbishop Charles Heerey. They also met with Archbishop Valerian Maduka Okeke, the Archbishop of Onitsha, who happily took them to visit the new Archbishop’s House still under construction.

On the way back to Nkpor, the Sisters stopped at the camp where some of the victims of the flood disasters in Anambra State took refuge to sympathise with them and offer them their little gift.
