By Munir Bayouk/ :

On Friday, February 9, the Union of the Religious Congregations held a meeting titled, “Cooperation with the Laity, How Can a Consecrates Serve the Laity?” at Terra Sancta College in Amman, in the presence of a group of nuns from various religious congregations in Jordan.


Following the Morning Prayer, Fr. Hanna Kildani gave a spiritual lecture, which was followed by a lecture delivered by an official in one of the humanitarian organizations and member of the Wells of Hope Jordan, namely Dr. Raedah Sweiden.


After a period of contemplation, Apostolic Nuncio to Jordan Archbishop Giovanni Pietro Dal Toso celebrated Holy Mass which was concelebrated by Fr. Rashid Mustrih, as the day of prayer was dedicated for the consecrated life where vows were renewed before the Temple of the Lord. 


During the monthly nuns' meeting on February 9 held in Amman, a comprehensive presentation on Human Trafficking, Talitha Kum's history and activities was prepared and presented by Dr. Raedah Sweidan, the Talitha Kum and the humanitarian Wells Of Hope team member. This presentation enclosed historical information about the global and national maturation of Talitha Kum.


Moreover, Dr. Sweidan presented several pictures of activities, meetings and workshops held by the Talitha Kum team during the past years. The participants showed vast interest in what we stand for and what we have done so far. The participants expressed gratitude and support to our team, hoping to see and hear more about Talitha Kum and  the Wells of Hope Jordan.


It is worth mentioning that the theme of this monthly meeting was: “How can the Consecrates Serve the Laity, Collaboration with the Laity”. The theme of this meeting encouraged the team to present Talitha Kum's work and background since it is the fruit of consecrated and laity people’s collaboration through the years.
