Each year the Province of USA and Canada hosts a sister from the Vice-Province of West Africa for Mission Appeals. It is always a wonderful experience to have a sister visit our province. This year it is Sister Margaret Nellieakunnel, an Indian sister missioned to Ghana. She has been in West Africa for 26 years. This weekend she continues her mission appeals in St. Joseph the Worker Parish, Nashua, New Hampshire. She is then off to our sisters in California for two weekend appeals in North Hills and Pomona, California. She has already completed appeals in 4 parishes in Rhode Island and 1 in Massachusetts. On her return from California she will do appeals in Millville and Boylston, Massachusetts and in Warren, Rhode Island after which she will return to her village of Domiabra, Ghana.  The mission appeals help to support the ministry of the sisters in the Province of West Africa which includes The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Ghana. We ask that you would support these missions through your prayers. If you would like to support these works of education, health care, rehabilitation, youth work and the empowerment of women through a donation, you can do so through the following link:

  1. Sister Margaret's happy presence in Rhode Island has been a joy. I will miss her when she leaves for her home in Ghana (that she so misses) next week. I will also miss the culinary aromas emanating from the kitchen!
