The day before yesterday, we celebrated the feast of St. Bakhita in great style!!! Sr. Josephine Bakhita was a lady from South Sudan who was sold as slave for many years until an Italian family rescued her! Once in Italy she became Religious and lived an exemplary life.
In the evening, two of our South Sudanese sisters (sr. Linda is still a novice!) cut the “panettone” with Maria, the eldest among our Italian Volunteers present in Gumbo.
