Jubalee 1845 - 2020 SJSM

“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; his greatness is unsearchable.


One generation shall laud your works to another,


And shall declare your mighty acts.


 On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.


The might of your awesome deeds shall be proclaimed,


And I will declare your greatness.”

          (Ps 145, 3 – 6)

During these days, all with one heart, mind and strength gave the testimony of God’s benevolence that they experience in their daily lives through community life, spiritual life and by living the Charism – ‘Adoration and Service’ through different apostolates. Various important themes were dealt namely: ‘Word of God and Constitutions, How we love our Vocation in Today’s World?, Religious Vows Vs Challenges of this World, Internationality, Mission Expansion etc…


We made Pilgrimages to Maria Stein (Switzerland), Mount St. Odille, Ebersmunster, Oelenberg and Turckheim. We placed lamps at the graveyards of our dear departed sisters at the cemeteries in Saint-Marc, St. Trudpert and Ebersmunster and paid our deep sentiments of gratitude and tribute to them.

The culmination of this great event was on 01st March, 2020 in Saint-Marc with a solemn Eucharistic Celebration presided by His Excellency, Archbishop Ravel from Strassburg, concelebrated with many other priests from far and wide.

“The Lord went in front of them in a pillar of cloud by day, to lead them along the way, and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light, so that they might travel by day and night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.”

(Ex 13, 21 -22)
