Installation of the New CPS Leadership Team

On 14 October 2017, the new CPS Leadership Team was installed in Rome.  Starting on the left, they are: Sr. Monica Mary Ncube (Superior General) from Zimbabwe, Sr. Caroline Mjomba (Vicaress General) from Kenya, Sr. Walburga Ballhausen from Germany, Sr. Marguerite Uy from the Philippines/Canada, and Sr. Ursel Beyerle from Germany.

Reflecting on the call of Moses (Exodus 3:10-14), Sr. Ingeborg Müller encouraged the new team: “There are thousands of bushes, but what makes the burning bush so special is that God is in it. And do we know what makes us so special to God?  It is that He is in us. If we do recognize that it is God in us that makes all the difference, then we will not come up with what sound like such good excuses for not serving God.”

“If God calls us into his service, our weakness is no hindrance for him; on the contrary he uses it to accomplish his goal. Leadership is indeed a journey of faith. And with St. Paul we can say, when I am weak, then I am strong. Remember also the theme of our General Chapter: Widen the space of your tent! Let God and his plan into your tent.”

Prayer of Blessing


As we embrace the Synodal Journey from 2021 to 2023, let us invite the Holy Spirit to be at work in us so that we may be a community and a people of grace.
