A blessed New Year to all!

One of the first big events of the new year was the Chapter of Elections at the Monastery of Capuchin Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration in Swellendam yesterday.   The new abbess is Mother Irma Guzman Romero. The vicar and first councillor is Sister Flor de Maria Pacheco Rodriguez and the second councillor is Sister Maria de Los Angeles Moreno Luquin.

We congratulate the community on the election of their leadership team and assure them of our love and our prayers.

The 13 sisters in the community have perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and all are welcome to come and spend time in prayer in their chapel where there is daily Mass and the chanting of the Divine Office – the official Prayer of the Church – at different times of the day.   The sisters also bake altar breads, make church vestments and run a retreat centre where individuals and groups can make a retreat at a very reasonable cost.

Their telephone number is 028 514 1319.
