You too can light up the lives of others!

For this session, Sr. Malgorzata Mazur will be sharing her experience.  Known as Sr. Gośka (since her name is difficult to pronounce for many), she was born in Poland, and entered the FMM in 1977.  Since 1986, Sr. Goska has been missioned to various parts of Japan, including a stint at the General House.  From being part of the hospital, to starting bible groups, to engaging in pastoral activities, Sr. Gośka now focuses her energy on taking care of her community of older Sisters.  Sr. Gośka loves the Bible, studying and sharing it since the mere age of 15, appreciates nature, and most of all, Sr. Gośka enjoys life.

Please feel free to contact us for any clarifications, and we seek your support to share this initiative with your parishioners.  We will also reach out to you again for the last session in Oct 2021.

Friends of the Cross

Friends of the Cross

7pm (Fri) – 1pm (Sun)

Do you listen to the voice of Jesus who, burdened with his Cross, calls out to you, “Come after me; anyone who follows me will not be walking in the dark; be brave; I have conquered the world.”?

A perfect Friend of the Cross is a true Christ-bearer, so that he or she can truly say, “I live now not with my own life but with the life of Christ who lives in me.” (Gal 2:20). As a perfect Friend of the Cross, the finding of our True Cross has to be more than just a mere discovery. It must lead us to embrace and follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly, in whom salvation is found.

Come and discover “Friends of the Cross” at Montfort Centre for 3 days and 2 nights.
