Profession in Aitape, Papua New Guinea
Judith Yereim, Clemencia Wasu and Maria Kauga made their First Profession on 25th October 2014 at St Ignatius Cathedral Aitape with Bishop Otto Separy as the main Celebrant. In true Papuan New Guinea style the ceremony was colourful and reflective of the local traditions of the people and the Presentation Sisters.
The vows of religious profession made by Judith, Clemencia and Maria were received by the Congregation Leader, Regina Gevia and witnessed by all present.
Sr Diana Dao chanted the Psalm and Sr Joyce Wansana presented the lantern (symbol of Nano Nagle as she visited the very poor of Cork City, Ireland) to the newly professed as a sign of their commitment to community and ministry among the people of the Sandaun Province PNG.
