On June 22, 2015 in the monastery Chapel of the Generalate of the Basilian in Rome, an International Conference was held of groups of “Mothers Prayers” with the presence of the community’s founder Veronika Williams.
Heeding the call of the Holy Father during the “Year of Consecrated Life”, we tried to spread information regarding the ministries of our Sisters. Banners were created showing various ministries throughout the world and get-togethers were held with various groups. On Sunday, June 7, 2015 in the chapel of the Generalate of the Basilian Fathers on the Aventino Hill there was a presentation about the Sisters of the Order of St. Basil the Great, a part of the program for the “Year of Consecrated Life”.
The regional coordinator of the Ukrainian groups of “Mothers Prayers” in Italy, Mrs. Lidia Vukovych appealed to our General Superior, Mother Dia Stasiuk, requesting that one of our Basilian Sisters attend meetings and give spiritual support to the group. Sister Nazariya Mykhaylyuk graciously accepted this ministry.
Due to the proclamation of the Year of Consecrated Life on May 15, 2015 the Congregation for the Oriental Churches organized a day of spiritual renewal for the superiors of Eastern Catholic monastic communities or congregations which have their Generalates or Administrative Headquarters in Rome.
