Dear confreres,
Today we celebrate the day of our founder, the servant of God Father Peter Mermier. We want to remember his missionary spirit that he left as a spiritual heritage and revive in our time the same spirit following your steps. We thank God for our Congregation and our province asking for the grace to be real missionaries, according to the heart of Father Peter Mermier. I wish for all of you a lot of happiness on this day and the abundant grace of God through the intercession of our founder.
Today we are ending the month of the Bible celebrating the memory of Saint Jerome, translator of the Vulgate. The word of God is the light for our path.
