Renewal of Vows - Anouska Robinson-Biggin fcJ - London, 31 August 2010
On 31st August 2010, the community of St. Aloysius Convent FCJ celebrated as Sr. Anouska Robinson-Biggin renewed her vows as a Faithful Companion of Jesus.
Anouska described this important step in her journey as a religious sister saying, 'it is great to have the chance to renew my 'Yes' but what has really struck me as I prepared for this day is that the Society has also said 'Yes' to me and for this I give thanks to God.'
Anouska renewed her vows within the Mass celebrated by Fr. Dave Stewart SJ, Director of the Jesuit run FSPlus Young Adult Ministry where Anouska is part of the team.
The vows were received by Provincial of the British Province, Sr. Margarita Byron fcJ.
The FCJ communities of Pope John and Gumley House in London joined the St. Aloysius Community for the occasion as did members of the FSPlus Team and friends of the community.
Following the Mass, light refreshments, and companionship was enjoyed by all in the community room and on the balcony.
