April 6 th , 2019, in the Cabrinian world is a day of thanksgiving and rejoicing.
It is the day that 5 Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Sisters and Laywoman, are missioned to the new Ugandan Cabrinian Community (UCC), to serve in the midst of the South Sudanese Refugees.
They are: Sisters Albertina Ghisleri Goulart, Addise Agago, Joseane Cabral Soares, Mercedes Aguilar Perez and Ms. Natalie Gibney.
After Easter, they are opening the Community in Dzaipi, Adjumani, in the Arua Diocese, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
This is the Cabrinian Charism’s concrete gesture in response to the Centenary of Mother Cabrini’s entrance into Eternal Life – she, the Patroness of Emigrants, Migrants and now, Refugees.
The Missioning Liturgy and Feast is being held at Holy Redeemer Church in the Cabrini Mission of Via Sicilia, Rome. His Excellency Sabino Ocan Odoki, Bishop of the Arua Diocese in Uganda has come to officiate for the occasion.
