It's a historical week. In the shadow of Great Britain's referendum result to leave the European Union Medical Mission Sisters in the UK also held a historical meeting: after many changes with sisters repatriating and new ones joining,we met for the first time as the new MMS Unit UK.
We discovered and valued anew the richness of having MMS from so many different parts of the world in our small group. Looking at our present reality we reviewed our governance structure followed by a vivid discussion about the needs of today.
With great joy we announce the election of Sr Lynne Rooker, Sr Rita Syron and Sr. Simone Herrmann in our new Unit UK Team who will work together with our Interim Unit Coordinator Sr Maria Goetzens. We are grateful for 8years of dedicated service of the previous team, coordinating us through such a challenging time of transition.
As MMS Unit UK we celebrate the gift of unity and journeying together as Medical Mission Sisters.
