New Community in Italy

On September 13, 2009, a new community of Servant Sisters was founded in Lumezzane, a village in the province of Brescia, northern Italy.

Don Tino Bergamaschi, parish priest of St. Apollonius, in Lumezzane, had been looking for a religious community for his parish. For over one hundred years the presence of nuns had not been lacking and the previous sisters were at the point of retirement. Archbishop Lorenzo Voltolini, Archbishop of Portoviejo (Ecuador), native to Brescia and childhood friend of Fr Tino called us to ask whether our community would be willing to found there. And thanks to the providence of God, in less than a year, we have been able to complete this foundation.

The sisters Teresa Castilla, Elena Braghin, Sara Lozano and Rocio Galmés, were received with all the affection of the priests and the faithful at the Parish of St. Apollonius. On September 13th, the presentation of the new community took place. During the ceremony, the former religious community gave the Servant Sisters a big key, as a symbol that one community was giving way to another so that the charism of consecrated life might stay alive in the parish. The sisters who were going to stay in Lumezzane kissed a crucifix, signifying acceptance of this new mission that the Lord had entrusted to them.
