NAMIBIE - Benedictine Sisters of Oshikuku
Project 6623 - Four Sisters to participate in the meeting of the Association of St Mechtild
The Association of St Mechtild links together several native Congregations of southern Africa:
Sisters of Oshikuku, Namibia
Sisters of Twasana, South Africa
Sisters of St Agnes, Tanzania
Sisters of Ndanda, Tanzania
Sisters of Christ the King (South Africa)
The Association meets once a year. Its purpose is to help each Congregation to preserve and interpret its spiritual heritage, to be a link between the Holy See and the different monasteries, to provide a shared norm which links all the members of the Association, to produce and enrich mutual support.
In 2018 the meeting occurred in July at the convent of Twasana. The sisters of Oshikuku need financial help for the airfare of four sisters to participate in the meeting in South Africa.
Requested amount: € 2,650
