PARAGUAY, by Mónica Enciso •
Monday, 20 June, nine groups of the Professional Women’s Branch, which began its road within the Schoenstatt Movement in 2015, sealed their commitment with the Blessed Mother, with the Schoenstatt community, and with each one of their life-sisters on the road to the covenant of love.
From Asunción, Itá, and Villarica
The nine groups are from: Asunción, Itá and Villarrica – they arrived at the Santuario Joven (Young Shrine), where they participated in Holy Mass; Fr. Pedro Mraballes, priestly adviser of the Professional Women’s Branch celebrated.
After the Eucharist, the commitment was carried out, which is a tradition of the Paraguayn Schoenstatt Movement. Each group presented the name and symbol by which they will be known as members of the Professional Women’s Branch. It was an emotional moment; tears and smiles were seen thanks to the great gift they received from the Blessed Mother.
Just the beginning
The group names are: Semina Fidelis, Tectum Mater, Bellis Perennis, Alma Fidelis, Fiat Mater, Ancillae Reginae, The Mater’s Missionaries, Ipsum Cor and Mater Laetitia Fidelis.
Surely this new road these professionals have taken within the Schoenstatt Family is just the beginning. This Branch is growing annually, as last year, six groups made their commitment, and this year there were nine.
