On 18th January 2017, a very joyful and solemn event in the life of the Infant Jesus family was celebrated in the Church in Azangaro, Bolivia. Sister Reina Fuertes and Sister Hilda Salvatierra Reina made their Final Profession.
The Mass was concelebrated by the Bishop of the Diocese of Potosí, Rev Ricardo Esrnesto Centellas Guzmán, and many priest friends of the Sisters. Our Latin American Assembly was held in Cochabamba in early January, followed by the Retreat, so the Sisters of Peru and Bolivia were present to join in the celebration. Sr Kimiko Matsumoto, member of the Central Team, represented the Institute world-wide, and was joined by representatives of the other religious congregations of Potosí Diocese. Sister Hilda’s and Sister Reina's families and numerous friends of the Infant Jesus community filled the church and prayed fervently with the entire congregation for God’s blessing on the newly-professed Sisters and on their work.
