Samoa, home to two of our Sisters and enroute to America, simply could not be passed over. We had heard so much about the ripe harvest of souls in Samoa! As zealous apostles in the footsteps of our holy father St Dominic, the Sisters flew into Apia, where they were met by the Leung-Wai family and Fr Robinson, SSPX, who had kindly agreed to accompany them on this leg of their trip.
The beauty of the souls encountered in Samoa was matched by the beauty of the island itself, with breathtaking views of coast and sea – and coconuts aplenty!
For us left behind in Rosary Convent, every email home from our missionary Sisters is an exciting source of news and new impetus for prayer. We follow their travels assiduously, commiserating with their fatigue and enjoying each new experience that comes with visiting a different culture in a foreign land. Do join us in praying for more vocations and the preservation of Dominican spirituality and Catholic education – such prayer cannot be ignored by the Lord of the harvest, Who has enjoined us all to pray that there may be labourers in His vineyard.
