From February 18th to 23rd 2019 the Inter-Chapter meeting for the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and our Cabrinian laity met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This is the first time to have an international meeting for the Cabrinian Family here in Africa. Delegates came from different parts of the world, representing the 3 Provinces and 1 Region, to participate at this meeting. All together, we were 24 sisters and 18 lay collaborators.
The Inter-chapter meeting was a time of evaluation of mandates from the last General Chapter in 2014 and to begin preparation for the next General Chapter in 2020.
This is a first time for me to participate in a meeting such as the Inter-Chapter and I enjoyed the opportunity to be part of this MSC experience. We worked in groups and shared in Assembly. It was a great opportunity for me to get to know the people from different countries who share the same Charism.
Prayer time was organized so that each of the different Provinces and Region had responsibility for a day, and I was leading the prayer service. Every day ended with us gathered around the altar for the Eucharistic Celebration.
Sr. Meseret Nagamo, MSC
