Consecrated Day Celebration -Gumbo

In the Diocese of Juba the day for consecrated people was celebrated on the first of February at KIT. It was so fascinating to see almost all the religious in the diocese participating in it. It was a retreat cum celebration. The opening prayer was led by Fr. Federico (Franciscan priest) followed by a talk by Sr. Felicia (a Franciscan Sister) the talk was on Prophecy and consecrated life. She highlighted the theme very well by saying every baptized Christian is called and consecrated to prophetic life. We were left to reflect and ask ourselves: are we recognized as prophets by anybody?
After the talk, we had a break with tea, drinks, biscuits, popcorn- a choice. Then again we had a gathering for discussion, followed by Mass celebrated by Bishop Paulino. There was a group photo after Mass followed by a festive lunch. We thanked one another and prayed that each of us and our communities may joyfully and prophetically fulfill our vocation to reveal God to others.
