We have been blessed to get to know some Nigerian Sisters who are missionaries in Dundee! They are Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Christ (IHM). In Dundee their work is to support the St Ninian Pastoral Institute. What a change for them to move to Dundee from Nigeria!
They very kindly hosted Sr Andrea and Jess on a visit to Dundee, when Sr Andrea spoke at the SPUC afternoon for life and the opening rally of 40 Days for Life. Their hospitality was incredible- they had handmade welcome cards and did a welcome song and dance around the dining table for us. Prayers with them was such a joyful experience- they brought out their drums and cymbals and had a perfect sense of rhythm. Sr Andrea is planning to start up Rachel’s Vineyard retreats in the Dundee area and is looking to form a team to lead the retreats, do get in touch if you are interested. One of the Nigerian Sisters has kindly volunteered to be involved with Rachel’s Vineyard.
We were delighted that they were able to visit Glasgow, when their Regional Superior from Rome came to Scotland. The Sisters joined us for lunch and a tour of the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative. Then Sr Andrea took them to see the sights of Glasgow and they were able to meet Fr Joseph Uwah, a Nigerian priest in St Andrew’s Cathedral.
