The Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate

SSMI Associates of Hamilton Region Renew Their Commitment

Pokrova group

On October 1, 2012, the Feast of the Protection of the Mother of God, Patronal Feast of the Associates of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, the Hamilton branch of the SSMI Associates gathered at the home of the Sisters in Ancaster, ON, to renew their commitment. The Sisters and the Associates prayed the Moleben to the Mother of God and at a point within the service, the Associates in turn pronounced their commitment, holding a lit vigil light, after which they placed them in a branched candle holder at the icon of the Blessed Mother. Refreshments and fellowship followed.

Congratulations to Stella Kuzyk, Anna Iskat, Nadia Dusanowsky, Anne Czuchta, Stephanie Buchok and Thelma Strabac, on the renewal of your commitment! Absent were John Pich and Boris Dusanowsky, who recommitted privately at home. We look forward to their public recommitment at our next gathering!

"I, ........., agree to live the charism of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate
as I live my Christian calling,
and offer my gifts of prayer and service
as an Associate member for one year.
May Christ be my strength and the Mother of God my Patroness."
