Canonical visit to the sisters of Belgium

From 30 September to 2 October and from 6 to 7 October, the sisters in Belgium received a canonical visitation by Patricia and Margarita. At present there is a community of 9 sisters, organised in two presences: Priorijlaan and Vogelzang, in the latter of which live the sisters who need special health care. They are very happy and grateful for the facilities offered by the new building in the old people's home, where they also enjoy the beautiful natural landscape.

The visitors emphasise the efforts of each other to take care of the unity, the fraternity, the spaces of celebration and daily Eucharist together, their spirit of searching and openness to novelty. They make an additional effort to translate into Dutch all the documents, letters, INFOs and other communications of the congregation, so that all are informed and can actively participate in the life of the congregation.

As part of the visit, there was Damien's itinerary: the birth house in Tremeloo, converted into a museum, the parish where he was baptised, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montaigu where Damien said goodbye to his mother to go to Molokai and his tomb in Leuven. Patricia and Margarita also met with the sscc brothers with whom they shared some congregational issues.
