Foundress Day Celebration 2012 Featured


On 8 May we hoisted the Canossian Missions flag and the College flag in commemoration of the zeal of St Magdalene of Canossa, the foundress of Canossian Daughters of Charity, who established the religious community in Verona in Italy on 8 May 1808.

The programme is a diverse one with a liturgical dance about the life of St Magdalene, whose spirit of charity and evangelisation has an impact on hundreds and thousands of street kids, be they girls or boys, the sick, the bed-ridden, the elderly and lay Canossians who pray, visit and devote themselves to making others’ lives a different one.

In addition to intercession for our spiritual growth and social needs, there were special quizzes between storytelling of the life of our Foundress.  After that, there was a sharing from our guest, Sr Alice Leung on how she became a Canossian sister.  In Sr Alice’s words, the relationship with GOD calls her into giving up herself and walking with Jesus in humility through charity.
