Province of Blessed Enrichetta, Central India 

LASA – An extended Annite Family

21st February 2021 was a memorable day in the pages of the history of Central India, the Province of Blessed Mother Enrichetta, as the LASA Members pronounced their Promise to God for the first time. During this 150th Jubilee year of our presence in India, they are the gifts from our Provident God for our Province. After having made an intense spiritual journey for nearly three years, 95 LASA members from 9 units of the Province came forward with creative courage to be part of extended Annite family. May their generous ‘Yes’ to walk in the footprints of our Holy Couple Carlo and Giulia of Barolo enhance their lives to carry out the works of Mercy bearing the Identity of SAP.

Divine Providence – 26th October

The Provincial Council decided that this year we reach out concretely to a poor/needy  family on the Feast of Divine Providence. So each Community, according to their reality carried out various works of Mercy.

The LASA collaborated generously with the Communities according to their abilities. The families experienced the hand of Providence in their lives!!!.

In Family Prayer

The grounding given to the LASA during the regular meetings, took root and wings in various ways during the time of Pandemic.

Since they were confined to their families, they used Zoom platform/ Google Meet, to pray with one another during the Marian months of May and October.

In Serving the Poor

It was beautiful to see the LASA reaching out spontaneously to the poor and needy, with their gestures of love.  Using different occasions, they contributed their mite, in spite of their, ‘financial crunch’.
