On August 26, the City of Hope was happy to welcome Mother General Yvonne Reungoat, who remained quite busy during her four-day stay.
Of course Mother Yvonne spent time at The City of Hope, but also celebrated the final profession of Sr. Esther Chilonga at the Makeni Parish Church. Celebrants included His Eminence, Cardinal Medardo Mazombwe, Provincial Sr. Julienne, and Sr. Esther’s brother, Fr. Titus SJ, and other family members. Lunch followed at The City of Hope, where everyone was entertained by groups of young people from all the Salesian houses.
Mother Yvonne also met with the Educating Community and celebrated a Thanksgiving Mass with Apostolic Nuncio Nicola Girasoli and the Salesian Fathers. This Mass was said for the Silver Jubilee of our Provincial, Sr. Julienne Munyemba. About 450 young people attended.
