100 Augustinian nuns celebrate 125 years in Malta

The youngest nun is 26 years old and the oldest 95 and tomorrow Sunday they have a dream of bringing together the present and past student generations and their families. The Augustinian congregation is organising a celebration at Santa Monika School in Birkirkara to celebrate the arrival and founding of the congregation in Malta 125 years ago.

We found the Augustinian nuns totally engaged in making preparations for the activity when visiting their community at the Santa Monika School to achieve their ambition of bringing together present and past students who attended the congregation’s schools.

Sister Celsina said she had started in 1955 when she was aged 17, had lots of students and loved them very much.

Sister Atanasia said she is almost 80 now but has been a Superior General everywhere.

Those attending will be able to savour the delicious food from their kitchen and also view the nuns in a most positive manner.

Sister Marica said they have continued with Tereza Spinelli’s charisma and that of the sisters who opened the first school at Qormi.

Sister Claudia said she has followed a religious life for 12 years with children and youths.

Sister Rachel said this is a life of satisfaction, happiness and love.

Before leaving, Sister Rachel together with the other nuns broke into song to prepare for tomorrow’s special Holy Mass at the school which will be concelebrated by Archbishop Charles Scicluna.
