On March 18th, 2017, five novices could profess their first vows in the presence of Sr. Gonzalo,General Superior, and Sr. Shirley, General Councillor. We are happy that there are again some new professed members in a country in which the need is getting bigger and bigger.

At the beginning of March 2017, we are happy to start two new projects for Widows after the good success of our first project in Garam.
Now both in Mgbele and in Ifetedo, the same kind of project is starting, supporting

the poor widows who need help to have a chance of a llife after the death of their husbands.

The Papal Society of Women for Mission in Germany is supporting both new projects.





On February 22nd, 2017, the Bishop of Osogbo, Most Rev. Bishop John Oyejola, officially opened Mother Teresa Catering and Hospitality School in Ibokun. He gave the sisters a house as a convent. It is a diocesan school, our sisters will work there and earn a salary.

Sr. Christiana and Emelda will teach; Sr. Viola will take over an already existing clinic. We are very happy to have a 2nd house in Osun State.


It was again possible for our sisters at the end of February to give vocation talks in a Catholic Secondary School in Ibokun, Osun State. The students were very interested and listened well.

In the near past, many people got sick and many children died in the village Umuoha Nzerem in Imo State, because people had no access to clean water. The sister try to have a borewell dug for the people. They got money from Germany, as much as we needed in the past, 8.000 Euro. With the terrible inflation in the country, a borewell dug by machines now costs almost  four times that amount - the exchange rates for Euro only rose 100%. So people try to dig the well by hand. They now have reached 50 m, they will have to go on to 120 m to reach clean water. Work goes on well and all hope to reach good water soon.

January, 2017: Perpetua, a student in the nursery school in Azhin Kasa, is being treated for rachitis and slowly is showing improvement. We are very happy for her.
