Soeur Louise Madore WD Congregational Leader
Great joy for the Daughters of Wisdom! They celebrated the perpetual commitment of the first two Indonesian Daughters of Wisdom, Sr. Avilia Inur and Sr. Mary Suryati. It was November 30, 2017!
Let us recall that in 2003, the Daughters of Wisdom celebrated their tercentenary of foundation. In this same year, November 12, a few missionaries, two Canadian Sisters, one Indian Sister and one from Madagascar founded the first community of the Daughters of Wisdom on Indonesian soil. Thanks to these missionaries and those who followed, the vineyard continues to grow.
The Congregation is deeply grateful to the Montfort Missionaries who from the beginning, welcomed the Daughters of Wisdom with them, allowing them to take root on this new land.
At present in Indonesia, there are three Indian Sisters, one Malagasy, two Indonesian Sisters of perpetual vows, six of temporary vows, one novice, seven pre-novices and twelve aspirants.
A group of Friends of Wisdom is also vibrant. These people want to drink at the source of Wisdom spirituality and to collaborate in the mission of the Daughters of Wisdom.
May Montfort and Marie-Louise continue to bless the vine that they have planted and pray Wisdom to make it bear fruit!
