Take me Jesus
Boregaina, Port Moresby: Members of the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate (MSI) glorified God on December 4th 2021. Sr Anges Gesina who was moved by the earnest desire to proclaim the Kingdom of God to all peoples, gave her definitive ‘YES’ to God and made her perpetual profession in her Parish, Holy Trinity Parish Boregaina, in the Archdiocese of Port Moresby.
The Holy Eucharist commenced with the sweet sound of the singing and spectacular entrance dance which made the atmosphere blessed. Most Rev Cardinal John Ribat MSC solemnized the ceremony along with 10 priests. Many parishioners and the family members of Sr Agnes came to witness the event with the silent admiration for the courage taken by her.
The peak moment of joyfulness and surrender was when the relatives of Sr Agnes came forward to remove her cultural attire, as a symbol of detachment of the world and its pleasures and leaving behind her family and total belonging to a new family called Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate.
Sr Vimala Francis, the province leader received the vows and Sr Agnes was given the ring which is the visible sign of the covenant that binds her eternally to Christ, in the presence of many religious, priests, family members and parishioners of Sr Agnes.
During the homily Cardinal highlighted on the theme, “Take me Jesus among your chosen ones” and invited the young people to follow the path of discipleship trodden by Jesus himself.
Sr Agnes made her first profession in 2015 at Vanimo and is currently working as a staff nurse at Bl. John Mazzuconni hospital at Watuluma Good enough Island, Alotau.
