Today, 13th November 2021
the XI General Chapter elected
Sister Elda Pezzuto
of the Sisters of St Joseph Benedict Cottolengo.
With a heart full of gratitude and appreciation we extend our fraternal well wishes and joyful thanks to Mother Elda for having accepted once again the service of animation and guidance of our Congregation.
The election was attended by the Father of the Little House and the Episcopal Vicar for Consecrated Life of the Diocese of Turin. At the request of the Vicar, Fr Sabino Frigato, to accept the new mandate, Sr Elda Pezzuto, expressing her awareness of her own limitations, but trusting in the greatness of God and the help of all the sisters of the Congregation, expressed her yes.
May the gift of the unceasing prayer of all the Sisters, of contemplative life and apostolic life, present in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, of the elderly and sick Sisters, be a precious support for her in the coming years.
DEO GRATIAS and AVANTI IN DOMINO!
The Chapter Sisters
