The New Provincial Council

Sister María Lourdes Sanz has been elected Provincial Superior. Until now, she was the local Superior at St Francis Xavier Hospital in Ghana. Sister Isabel Cantón, former Vicar Provincial, handed her the stamp of the Province with a very touching speech.

The new Provincial Council will also be formed by Sister Tomasa de la Torre, elected Provincial Vicar and 1st General Councillor and Sister Encarnación Aguayo, 2nd Councillor.

Our hearty congratulations to all of them and a huge thank you to our former Council: Sr Begoña Pérez, Sr Isabel Cantón and Sr María Josefa Hernández. We wish them strength and serenity to carry out their tasks and pray to the Lord and our Founder St Benedict Menni to accompany them in all the steps of the way.
