Bernice Reintjens in Via Aurelia (Sisters)

Last Saturday, February 17, Bernice Reintjens, together with Bas, her eldest son, visited the General House community. Bernice is a lay woman, who has been working with our congregation in the Netherlands for many years. She is in charge of accompanying and animating the lives of our sisters Jos Van Der Boogaard, 89 years old, Johanna Schreuder, 92 years old, and Marianne Van Der Heyden, 94 years old, who live in the Sint Jozefoord residence, Nuland.

This residence was founded by the Congregation Daughters of Mary and Joseph for the elderly sisters of their Congregation. Today, it is directed by an interdisciplinary team, and welcomes a good number of elderly men and women, including religious from 10 congregations. Our sisters live a life of prayer and reflection with other residents, have various times of entertainment and celebrations, have occasional community meetings to do some congregational work or reflection animated by Bernice. With some frequency they are visited by our sscc brothers present in a nearby city, especially during congregational celebrations and birthday parties.

In the spontaneous sharing, there was time for questions, remembering sisters and sharing a delicious pizza.
