Renewal of commitment of Companions in Mission
in Galati, Romania
13 October 2012
During a very joyful sung Mass on Saturday 13 October 2012, our three Companions in Mission, Romana Drasovean, Doina and Ionel Gheorghiu, renewed their commitment for three years in the presence of Sr. Margarita fcJ, Provincial of the Province of Europe, the FCJ Sisters from Bucharest, and a full church. The celebration took place in the Catholic church of St. John the Baptist, run by the Franciscans.
A delicious simple buffet followed the Mass, where both young people and older friends, Franciscan priests, FCJ sisters, Franciscan Tertiaries and our “Insotitori in Misiune” enjoyed a lovely evening together. There was a wonderful spirit of joy and friendship, everyone taking part in the circle dancing, showing their esteem and appreciation for Romana, Doina and Nelu.
At the moment there is no permanent FCJ community resident in Galati, so Romana, Doina and Nelu are keeping our FCJ charism alive in the parish community and through their generous outreach to those in need. All for the greater glory of God!
