St. Maria Gemma Umberta Pia, is a mysterious saint in account of her extraordinary life witnessed by those who lived to care for the welfare in her spiritual life specially!
As we read in the web site, she was a Passionist by spirit. She lived the passion of Jesus Christ for a good long period, willingly.
Moved by the Supernatural virtuous she was granted, the Passionist Fathers faithfully enhanced St Gemma Galgani to be the Patron saint for The Dodoma Catholic Diocese.
On the birth of the Diocesan Women Congregation the same saint was again made Patron Saint for the Congregation, in the same Diocese.
ST. Gemma Galgani Sisters of Arch-Diocese of Dodoma are very happy to invite all the Faithful In and Out of the Arch Diocese, all Friends and people of good will, to share the joys and glory of God on the feast on 16th May each year.
During the Celebrations, members of the congregation also celebrate final vows of some of the members.
The Dodoma Arch – Bishop B. Kinyaiya or an invitee would be the main Celebrant.
All are welcome to Praise the Lord!!!
THE CROSS OF CHRIST IS OUR STRENGTH!!!
ST. GEMMA GALGANI , PRAY FOR US !
