Re-consecration of the Church of the Annunciation in Aleppo, Syria

On the 26th of April, we had the closing of the 750th anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral “Santa Maria Nuova”, where by the grace of God we have a community of Servidoras who help in the cathedral. Mother Orante (the General Secretary), together with Mother Lucila, and Sisters Laetitiae and Dulce Nombre, were able to greet Cardinal Pietro Paroli, and help with the preparations for the celebration of this great event.
Plaque for the first Tabernacle of the Servidoras
We placed a plaque on the first tabernacle and the first altar at which the Servidoras prayed. Currently they are located in the chapel of the Saint Joseph novitiate, painted by our sisters.
