As we honor the Veterans today, there are many people we wish to celebrate. Those who braved the difficult and trying moments for the security and well being of everyone. We honor those who have died and those still living, retired and those still serving. As Medical Mission Sisters, we remember and celebrate our many Veteran Sisters and Associates.
Christians around the world united to pray and care for creation from 1st September to 4th October. It was the “Season of Creation,” which was organized by the Global Catholic Climate Movement and it took place from Paris to Pittsburgh, Pretoria to Manila. Participants were religious from different congregations, lay from church organizations and students.
Rescue camps have been opened in many places in Kerela, South India, due to the recent flood that affected the area. Now there are 50 camps accommodating about 50,000 people. Medical Mission Sisters in South India are continuing in assisting relief efforts in any way they can. They were able to access emergency funding from the Hilton Fund for Sisters, and went to the camps last week, helping with the immediate needs of flood survivors, such as purchasing commodes for two paralyzed persons, and offering a healing presence to the families they visited.
