Arusha, July 12: God has blessed our Delegation with another affiliation in a new diocese in Singida. Surely the Holy Spirit Delegation is growing with its missionary activities. The bishop of Singida invited us, the Sisters of Notre Dame to help him with Education and other activities. Our great hope is that we start an orphanage in 2013and be a help to our many little ones who suffer due to no home and education. We have already started a pre-primary school and two classrooms are already full with students. We reached out to the people in the parish with pastoral work. I t had been a privilege to work with another tribal group in Tanzania. Much work is awaiting us but we wish we had more personal. “The Harvest is ready but labourers are few.”
Arusha, January 6: We had the most joyful day in the Holy Spirit Delegation when we celebrated the Golden Jubilee of our dear Sister Mary Lalita. Sister is a great educationist and she has a passion for art and prayer.
Sister Mary Lalita has been the Educational coordinator, Head teacher, Local superior. She is a person who reaches out to people and the old students continue to contact and keep in touch with her. Right now she is local superior at the Holy Spirit Delegation centre.
We have named our school in Simanjiro as Notre Dame Osotwa school. For these children to go to school wearing a uniform was great. The parents could not believe their eyes.
June 16th: A dream came true for us as we opened our new mission in Simanjiro a Masai village about 150 kilometers away from Arusha. These people were longing for a school in the village. They are so happy to see their children going to school with uniform and books. They have never gone to school, their parents have never gone to school but they see their children go to school and learn many things in few days. They feel that the door of heaven has opened for them. We the sisters of Notre dame are privileged to touch the lives of these people who need us most.
What a great joy it was to welcome our dear Sisters Mary Christine, Pascalia,Elizabeth and Magdalene as finally professed sisters in the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame. they are a great gift to our Holy spirit Delegation.
