This year’s vow renewal was held during benediction on 24th October at 7pm. The following day at 2pm a vow taking celebration mass was presided over by Catholic Koganei Church Priest Fr. Dinh. This year one sister celebrated her Diamond Jubilee and two their Golden Jubilees. Furthermore, a younger sister renewed her perpetual vows.
Thank you to the large number who attended the celebrations and party afterwards.
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.
