Working visit to Timor Leste


Sr Hermin and Sr Dorine paid a visit to Timor Leste from 26 August up and including 6 September. This was the first real working visit in this term of office. It proved to be a special trip because the new formation house in Dili was opened during that period. That was a true happening. Several dignitaries attended, including the bishop, the president’s wife and the wife of the general. Of course all the sisters in Timor Leste also participated in the festivities surrounding the opening. Sr Hermin and the bishop officially opened the new building together. As a matter of fact the building had not been completely finished, but the official moment of the opening was determined by the presence of the two members of the general council. The sisters in Timor Leste now have the space to help interested young women to grow in religious life.
