London: new novices at Nazareth House
Comment Email Print
L to R - Sisters Priscilla Tumulumbe and Henrietta Mary (Zimbabwe), Regina Mary, (Samoa), Marissa, (Philippines), Badirai Memory (Zimbabwe) and Maria Ramonita (USA)
Sunday 21 November was a day of joy at the Nazareth House Novitiate in Hammersmith, west London.  Two new Novices, Srs Marisa and Priscilla joined the community, having completed their time as postulants,  whilst two other Novices are departing to make their first profession.   Sr Maria Ramonita is returning to the USA for first profession and Sr Regina Mary from Samoa will take her vows in Australia.

The novices come from a variety of backgrounds - a newspaper sub editor, a librarian, a student, a merchandiser, a parish worker and a house manager for a diplomat. All are aspiring to final profession as Sisters of Nazareth to work with the poor, disadvantaged, elderly and children throughout the world.

As she enters the Novitiate, Sr Marisa  said:  "This is my second door, my next step in my religious vocation, continuing to serve God and his people. I learned a lot as a Postulant working with elderly people in Cardiff.

Sr Maria Ramonita said: "We are a different kind of Sister Act. We are a family, supporting each other and learning from each other and travelling together. I have enjoyed being a Novice in Hammersmith, people have been very kind to us.
