Celebration in Peru
The Sisters of Mercy of Newfoundland and all Sisters of Mercy in Peru rejoice this day! On March 1, 2012 Maria Elizabeth Galan Fiestas was welcomed into the Postulancy Program, a serious first step in her discernment process and in her incorporation as a Sister of Mercy. The ceremony took place in the newly renovated chapel at the sisters’ residence in Ichocan, Peru. There were nine Sisters of Mercy of Newfoundland present with Maria for this special moment in the life of our Congregation. Sister Elizabeth Marrie, member of the Leadership Team, travelled from St. John’s to be present for this event. Maria will begin the Novitiate phase of her religious formation now in Lima with other women from the Mercy world in Peru.
