A two-day webinar was organized by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes, Province of Bangalore, for the Ongoing Formation Batches from 1987-2002. The webinar was spearheaded and systematically, methodically and efficiently organized by the Chief Coordinator of the Organizing Committee – Sr. Elizabeth Chowrappa, SJT, and her team Sr. Lucy Pinto, Sr. Jaya and Sr. Georgina. Within a very short span of time, Sister organized the webinar which ignited a spark of enthusiasm among the participants by bringing them together on a common platform for psychological and spiritual enrichment.

Over 60 Sisters, including 15 Silver Jubilarians from Bangalore and Jeevan Maitri Mysore Province; from different parts of the country as well as from Uganda and Wolverhampton and Forestgate, UK, logged in and participated while over 100 others viewed and listened to the enlightening sessions.

The speaker for the first session on Day 1, Fr. Joseph T, a devout, pious and ardent Retreat Preacher, presented a soul-searching talk on “Graceful Journeying with the Lord” which touched the divinity within us.

The second resource person for the day, Sr. Elizabeth Chowrappa, SJT, made a vibrant, research-based and highly intellectually stimulating presentation on “Mental Health Treasured During Covid Times”, touching upon fostering one’s own mental wellbeing and psychological health through various healthy routines and practices. The highlight of her presentationwas finding peace at the foot of the Cross.

The speaker for Day 2, Dr. Mohan Sunil Kumar, Psychiatrist, in his talk on “Road Map for Holistic Wellbeing” highlighted 8 ways to weave different dimensions of wellbeing into a daily routine – physical, emotional, social, occupational, financial, intellectual, environmental and spiritual.

The final takeaway from the webinar was the profound Presidential address by the Provincial, Sr. Benedicta Mary Joseph, which emphasized the need to proactively put one’s house in order by living a God–centered life that can weather any storms of life.

While Sisters Sr. Benedicta Mary Joseph, Lucy, Elsamma, Louisa, Jaya, Amudha, Sylvia Christie, Francina, Natalia, graciously cooperated in carrying out the assigned responsibilities.

The webinar was welcomed and well-received by the Sisters of different batches, who were filled with excitement and joy to get connected with one another. Gratitudinal responses received from the Sisters who participated in the webinar was overwhelming.

All Glory be to the Holy Trinity.
