Now There are Fourteen Candidates in Burundi

Sr. M. Françoise Nimibona, Gikungu, Burundi

In June, the community of the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary in Gikungu, a district of Bujumbura, Burundi, had the joy of welcoming into their home

 two new candidates.

The candidates were accompanied by their parents and entrusted to the Mother Thrice Admirable in the Schoenstatt Shrine Mount Schoenstatt. Yvette Ndayisabais the is oldest child in a family with five children. Gentillesse Niyontore is the fourth child in a family with nine children.

The two new candidates, as is customary in Burundi, were cordially welcomed by the other candidates with a song. There are twelve other young women who arrived already one or two years ago. With the two new candidates there are now fourteen young women who would like to become Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary.

We thank the Mother Thrice Admirable of Schoenstatt and our father and founder, Father Joseph Kentenich, for this great gift to the Schoenstatt family in Burundi!
