Nuns of Suzhou Diocese end the Year of Faith with pilgrimage

The Sisters of the Presentation of the Virgin of Suzhou diocese in Jiang Su province held a pilgrimage from November 12-14 to the Cathedral and the Shrine of Our Lady in the Archdiocese of Ji Nanto, to conclude the Year of Faith.

During the Year of Faith, the Sisters of the Presentation shared an intense spiritual journey with the whole diocese, invoking the intercession of the Patron saint of the diocese and of the mission, St. Therese of Lisieux.

In the Cathedral of Ji Nan, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, the nuns were received by the Elder Bishop Zhang Xian Wang, who advised them to "always be the light of the world and salt of the earth, because the Lord has called and sent us to witness Him on the path of evangelization".

During the Mass at the Marian shrine, the priest exhorted the Sisters to intensify Marian spirituality, following the example of Mary’s spirituality and availability, in order to experience the joy of consecrated life.
