The hearts of Holy Cross Sisters Nita Rozario, Monju Corraya, Shiuli Gomes, Kolpona Costa,  Bashona Rebeiro and Lotika Gomes were dancing with joy and gratitude to God as they celebrated 25 years of consecrated life in the Church and the Congregation on October 19, 2018.

The celebration began the day before with an hour of benediction. The jubilarians shared their thankfulness and love for God through various symbols. Archbishop Moses M. Costa, CSC, of Chittagong, presided over the jubilee celebration at Holy Rosary Church in Tejgaon, Dhaka, Bangladesh. He focused on three particular words—mission, joy and gratitude—based on the readings and the sisters’ service to the Church and God’s people. The solemn and prayerful Mass was followed by a festive meal.

In the evening, a wonderful, extraordinary cultural program was performed by the sisters from different groups. The jubilarian sisters expressed their thankfulness and gratefulness to God for their vocation in Holy Cross and for all the blessings they had received.
