Silver Jubilee of Anastasia Puji Hastuti sscc - Indonesia

On March 17, at the end of the Zone Assembly, our sister Anastasia Puji Hastuti, the first sister from Asia, celebrated her 25th anniversary of religious profession. It was the sisters from Hawaii who introduced the Congregation in Asia, and at this celebration, the sisters who accompanied Anas in her first steps in the Congregation were present: Helene Wood, Katherine Francis and Regina Mary. Also present were sisters from India, Indonesia and the Philippines who, at some point in these 25 years, have shared life with her. 

The Eucharist was presided by Thomas Sukotriraharjo ss.cc., General Councilor, and concelebrated by our brothers Pankras Olag, Provincial of Indonesia, Noel Flaviano and Andy. Brothers, friends and colleagues of Anas accompanied her in this moment of thanksgiving. All this was enlivened by the angelic voices of the Bagong Silang choir.

During the celebration, a short account was given of how Anas came to know the Congregation and where she had served in these 25 years. Thomas, at the end of his homily, invited Anas to share what had been the most important challenges and the happiest moments during this time. Among the challenges, she highlighted community life and what makes her happiest is being an international missionary.

During the thanksgiving, a video of Anas' life was shown, with a special message from her brother, her novice mistress and a ss.cc. brother from Indonesia who made his novitiate with her.

A festive meal and a lively program, led by our brothers and sisters, with the participation of all, brightened up the afternoon and enhanced the celebration.
