As a “chosen race” empowered by the power of Christ, the MSMHC keeps sailing with unquenchable desire to conquer the world with Christ’s love. A significant event was witnessed in its journey this year on October 7 2022, as it embraced a new Mission Centre at Kauai, in one of the Hawaiian Islands.
Sr Rachel Marius, Sr Jincy Thomas and Sr Philisicita Jyrwa are pioneers in this new community. They were warmly welcomed by the faithful of St Catherine Church and school on their arrival at Lihue airport, Kauai. Fr Nicholas Apetorgbor the Parochial Administrator and Fr Dario Rinaldi the Parochial Vicar blessed the St. Mary’s Convent on the same day. Later on November 4, 2022, was a moment of great joy and honour for the Sisters to be welcomed by Bp Larry Silva, the bishop of Honolulu diocese at 5:00pm with the Holy Eucharist followed by a grand welcome dinner. The entire parish was part of this welcome ceremony. The students of St Catherine school staged few entertainments. The people are extremely happy to have the presence of sisters in this mission. The people are very warm hearted, kind and ever ready to reach out to the Sisters.
With unflagging zeal and dedication, the sisters contribute to the growth of the Church and society, imparting knowledge and faith through various apostolates education, Family visits, and pastoral care. education and pastoral needs of the people in Kauai. All three sisters are engaged in the school, particularly teaching catechism, and helping in the pastoral needs.
