Editorial

Dear readers,

We are pleased to reconnect with you and to offer you our very best wishes for this new year, 2015.

Between late 2014 and early 2015, the sisters of Notre-Dame des Apôtres Region were involved in wide-spread activies, some of which are highlighted in this issue. We hope that reading about them will bring you joy. Within these pages, you will find an interesting report of the work undertaken at the meeting of the Central Committee of Associate Relationship on the main theme: Uncovering the Face of Associate Relationship. In the midst of this joy, however, there is an obituary item regarding the passing of Bishop Joseph Djida. He was well-liked by all the novices who knew him.

Enjoy this issue!!!

The cross is at shoulder height. You can look into the eyes and face of Jesus, the soldier, Mary, Veronica. The nails are large, more like spikes.
