Sr. Rekha Chennattu, the Scripture Scholar from the Indian Province of 'Religious of the Assumption' has been elected the new General Superior for the congregation.
The announcement was made by Fr. André Cabes, rector of the Sanctuary of Lourdes.
He blessed her with the following prayer: “God of love and goodness, only you do wonders, pour out the Spirit of Grace and salvation on your servant, Sister Rekha and on the Congregation entrusted to her, and so that she can please you, pour out your blessing on her as the dew falling from the heavens. Through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the communion of the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen”, after which she placed the seal of the congregation on the altar, given to her by Fr. Cabes.
The occasion was graced by capitulars, diakonia and sisters from neighbouring communities.
