First Profession of Sisters of Catholic Apostolate (CSAC) in India
We thank Almighty God for the wonderful gift of vocation to Pallottine Family. On 8th December 2019, three of our Pallottine Novices made their commitment to God. After seven years of long reflection, studies, prayers they have decided to consacrate themselves.
It is a matter of great joy to the entire Pallottine family that we have these three newly professed sisters. We seek God’s blessings upon them and pray that they may be ever faithful to God.
All the best to Sr. Bala Rani, Sr. Priscillya and Sr. Sheena.
