The 17th December 2023, the day on which twelve members of the Malawi CMS made their commitments, was a great day for the Missionary Carmel. Six come from Chiphaso parish and six from Mtengo Wa Ntenga parish. The Eucharistic celebration took place at Our Lady of Hope Parish, Chiphaso, presided over by the parish priest, Fr Emanuel Chimimbo. It began at 9am with the entrance procession, all dressed in the classic chitenje.

After the homily, Sr. Ruth encouraged the Carmelite lay missionaries to make their commitments, recalling the love for the Church of Father Francisco Palau.

Sisters Maria Angella Mpotola and Dorothy Fernandez, as advisors to the groups, conducted the commitment ceremony and the presentation of the CMS statutes and the relic medal of Fr Palau to each of them.

At the end of the mass we gathered in the parish hall to congratulate them and to share with joy the abundant and varied food brought by the groups. We sang, danced and continued to praise God for the gift of the new CMS members. Glory to God.
