The coronavirus pandemic is a reality in the world and especially in Italy. Indeed, this country is very affected by the epidemic with hundreds of deaths every day, leaving us perplexed by the magnitude of the phenomenon. It confirms what Sister Françoise said in her letter of 16 March 2020 to the whole Institute: And now the “Covid-19” has suddenly burst into our globalized world and in the blink of an eye has disrupted our lives and the economy in more than half of the countries of the world, and is falling on rich and poor alike.

When the Ignatian Spirituality Project was seeking a location to establish itself in Rhode Island in 2014, one of the essentials - aside from staff, program and participants - was the need to find the perfect location in which to be housed, welcomed and fed, physically and spiritually. This need for "hospitality" brought about a collaboration between the Jesuit-sponsored project - the Ignatian Spirituality Project - and the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, who own one of the only retreat houses in Rhode Island.
“If it is my work it will perish with me, but if it is God’s it will continue!” said Maman Passion. Two years from now we will be celebrating the centenary of the inception of St. Joseph’s Hospital, Baramulla. Right from the genesis of this Mission, this “Vessel” has faced turbulent times in the journey of its life; storms either small or big on its precious and fabulous journey. When we flip through the breathtaking life journey lived by the dedicated pioneer sisters who left remarkable and evergreen memories of this campus, this becomes one of the FMM heritage sites in India.
JUTAÍ is a municipality located in the High Solimões that belongs to Tefé Prelature. It is a beautiful place, on the shores of the Solimões River. From the 10th to the 14th of July, 2019, this city welcomed 920 persons for the Fifth Assembly of CEBs (Basic Christian Communities) of Tefé Prelature. Among them were bishops, priests, men and women religious, permanent deacons, committed laity representing 14 parishes and two missionary areas, and representatives from pastoral ministries, movements and organizations. We expressed our gratitude to God that this very important event in the journey of our local Church took place!
