Canonical visit to the Hijas de Jesus in the Philippines: CEBU

August 15, 2023

Mother General visits Sacred Heart School – Hijas de Jesus (CEBU, Philippines) and promotes the call to transform the world through Catholic education.

Mother General Graciela Francovig, made a historic canonical visit on August 8 and 9, 2023. The welcoming program was attended by Hijas de Jesus sisters, parent representatives, administrators, faculty and staff, and alumni and students. She conveyed the message of transforming the world through caring for and walking with others, as well as caring for the common home. The invitation echoes the profound spirituality of the St. Candida Maria de Jesus born of her deep love for Jesus, and of the call of Pope Francis in his encyclical  Fratelli Tutti. Sr. Graciela is joined by Sr. Teresa Pinto, General Councilor, and Sr. Emelinda Falsis, Provincial Superior of the Hijas de Jesus Indico-Pacific Province.
