On Saturday, July 27, the new PHJC General Leadership Team was officially installed in Dernbach, Germany.
Sisters Jolise May, Flora Vedamuthu and Christiane Huppert from the out-going Leadership Team, offered the new team bread and water, representing leadership’s responsibility to nourish each member of the congregation. A walking stick made of Lindenwood was also given representing direction of the congregation into unknown lands. Sr. Gonzalo Vakasseril (Superior), Sr. Annemarie Kampwerth (Vicaress), Sr. Shirley Bell (Councilor) and Sr. Barbara Spiegelhoff (Councilor) accepted these items, as well as the congregation's constitution, during a blessing given by Sr. Jolise, former General Superior.
After the celebration in the chapel, Sisters, friends and family gathered in the Motherhouse cafeteria for coffee and to celebrate together. Congratulations and blessings to the new PHJC General Leadership Team.
