Opening of the 2015 ICM General Assembly

by the General Assembly Secretariat

On May 10, 2015, we had the opening of the General Assembly. At around 3:00 P.M., our sisters from different communities in Kinshasa arrived in Mbiti. There was great joy greeting and embracing one another, meeting many sisters for the first time.

A whole program was prepared to express our welcoming hearts to the sisters coming from the different corners of the world. The students of one of our schools: Lycée Toyokana presented an African dance, followed by a poetic presentation composed by a professor. The theme was about radiating our burning love to the world- in spite of the controversial situations - in imitation of Jesus who became man because He loves us.  As followers in the footsteps of our Mother Foundress, we also open our loving hearts to the world.

Then, we had the Eucharist Celebration presided by Rev. Father Louis Ngoy, Provincial Superior of the CICM Province of Kinshasa.  He too encouraged us to go deeper into Jesus’ heart and mind, His commandment of LOVE.  In the midst of this big movements and changes in all parts of the world: globalization, emergence of technology, division, corruption, discrimination, etc., we are challenged to reconnect and capture the relevance of the charism of our foundress.

Thus, we ask the Holy Spirit to inspire and guide us and that we may follow Him faithfully.  

Towards the end of the celebration, Sr. Adrienne, District Superior of Congo pronounced her words of hearty welcome to our Sisters participating to the General Assembly.

On May 11th, first day of our General Assembly, we had the opening prayer asking the Holy Spirit to warm our hearts and to assist us throughout the Assembly.

This was followed by the message of Sr. Saveria, our Superior General.  She explained the context and purpose of our General Assembly.  We should face our realities and the urgent needs of mission. We should arrive to an honest accountability in the light of the Chapter Mandate of 2010.  We are called to creative fidelity and to engage ourselves to the future.

Then  Sr. Saveria declared our GA opened!
