House Blessing the new “Saint Damien” Community in Asuncion-Paraguay (Srs)

On Monday, December 15th, after the celebration of the Eucharist presided by our brother Juan Luis Schuester sscc, the house of the new community Saint Damien in Asuncion, Paraguay, was blessed.

During the introduction, Lilian Bordon sscc, provincial of Paraguay-Bolivia, explained the need for this community dedicated to the elderly and ill sisters. She made a grateful memory of all the Spanish sisters who went to Paraguay and that made possible the dream of the Congregation in Paraguayan land.

For this occasion, all the sisters participating in the Chapter (taking place from 16 to 20) and those living in the area of Asunción, as well as the architects responsible for the execution of the work, were present.

During the blessing of the chapel of the new community, a relic of Saint Damien, offered by the brothers of Hawaii for all our nursing communities, was installed. The support of the relic represents the island of Molokai. Concluding the celebration a toast was offered in an atmosphere of Sacred Hearts family.
