Today marks a year since our beloved Sr Mary Mamwacha SSND went to God. The School Sisters of Notre Dame in the Kenya area marked this special day on Saturday the 11th of July. The sisters and Sr Mary’s family gathered at our formation house in Kisumu,Kenya in anticipation of Sr.Mary Mamwacha’s death anniversary. On this day, we gathered to celebrate the Eucharist and bless the new tombstone.
The celebration of the Eucharist was led by Fr Dominic OP .Among those present were the newly professed sisters who had just arrive from Ghana. They were part of the beautiful choir that sang at this celebration.The sisters shared with the family a gift of sister Mary’s memories. These memories recorded in a digital video disk tell of Sr Mary’s life and her last days on earth. After the Eucharistic celebration ,we all processed to Mary’s resting place and held a blessing ritual for the new tombstone.
It was a great way to remember our Sr Mary, A woman of great faith who shared her love,faith hope with all the people she lived and worked with. May she rest in eternal peace.
