Gathering of our Sisters

2014 was strongly characterized by our founder Father Johannes Schneider: That special year we were celebrating our founder’s 190th birthday on January 11 plus the 160th foundation day of our congregation on December 8.

The year of Father Johannes Schneider was marked by numerous activities.

- On May 8 a Day of Encounter took place in our monastery in Berlin-Lankwitz. Sisters from different houses in Germany and Poland participated in the gathering that was dedicated to the charisma of our founder. As part of this special encounter the Father-Johannes-Schneider-Room in the monastery of St. Augustinus was inaugurated.

- On June 28 the Sisters undertook a pilgrimage and wandered in the footsteps of our founder. It led to the places where our founder spent his childhood and adolescence: Mieszkowice, Rudziczka and Nysa.

- On October 10 a street and a corresponding little square were named after our founder. Thereby the state officially appreciated Father Schneider’s ministry as an apostle in Breslau.

- In celebration of the anniversary year several meetings were arranged for the employees in the houses of the German and Polish provinces. Therein the participants delved into the life and work of our founder and discussed the charisma of our congregation.
