8th June 2014 Social event for the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of St. John’s Congregation

Following Mass on 8th June we held a social exchange with parishioners of the Catholic Koganei Church.
Despite the rain about 100 people attended including members of the St. John’s Brothers and Sisters Association.
One person even attended who had just returned from France the day before despite his jet lag and tiredness.
Following a speech by the Mother Superior we showed a DVD entitled “The History of Fuji St. John’s Facility”.
After that there was a small party and a photo exhibition of the facility.  There was occasional laughter during the
DVD which made it an enjoyable experience.

6th June 2014 70th Anniversary of Founding – Benediction

On 6th June at 7pm a benediction officiated by Fr. Dinh of the Catholic Koganei Church, was held in preparation for the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the St. John’s Congregation.

God desired the founding of the Congregation at a time when Japan was in disruption as a result of war.  We prayed that we, who seek to live the consecrated life, may become appropriate neighbors to those who need our help, such as the sick and lonely, and that we may be able to continue to show God’s mercy.  Furthermore, we prayed that God would  send us new vocations.
