We give thanks to God for the countless blessings we have received this year, especially for our 18 Sisters around the world who made their Final Profession on 8 December 2018!! The celebrations took place in Zimbabwe, Moçambique, South Africa, South Korea, Kenya and DR Congo. Congratulations, Sisters! May the Precious Blood of Jesus bless and protect you always.
Sr. Bernadette Mtimkulu, CPS is currently the oldest Missionary Sister of the Precious Blood around the world. She celebrated her 100th Birthday on 26 November 2018 at Glen Avent Convent, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
Sister will reach another milestone soon when, God-willing, she celebrates her Platinum Jubilee - 70 Years of Religious Profession - on 6 January 2019.
We thank God for a century of blessings and life in abundance for our dear Sr. Bernadette!
