SISTER TRINITAS MARIE, CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF RELIGIOUS PROFESSION IN THE NETHERLANDS

The Adoration sisters lead a cloistered convent life devoted to perpetual adoration of the Holy Sacrament. They are known to the outside world as Pink Sisters because of their pink habit.

Before she entered the Congregation, Sr. Trinitas Marie studied at St. Louis University in Baguio and in Vigan at the Benedictine College of the Benedictine sisters. A Swiss missionary, Fr. Bernard Raas, SVD assigned in Vigan asked the young lass if she wants to further her studies in Catechism. This was the turning point of her life. After finishing the course she made the decision to enter the Holy Spirit of Perpetual Adoration.

Twenty-five years after she took her vow in Baguio Sr. Trinitas Marie renewed her commitment in the Eucharistic celebration officiated by Frs. P. Rentinck, J. Wissink, Herman Wijtten SVD, Sedfrey SVD and Melvin Victor SVD at the Cenakel chapel in Utrecht where she is assigned for many years now. Her fellow congregation sisters sang during the mass. Special pieces requested by Sr. Trinitas Marie were sung by the FCCNH choir, OLGA of Rotterdam and a solo by Louie, whose last name we were unable to get. The chapel was filled with Filipinos from religious communities in surrounding cities and towns and Dutch friends.

After the mass the celebrant, together with Sr. Maria Confidens, happily received her long line of kababayan and Dutch well-wishers. She thanked them for their friendship and support in spreading their mission and their cooperation to make her silver anniversary a memorable one. The choirs of Filipino religious groups which take turns singing in the Filipino mass every first Sunday of the month at Cenakel chapel brought the dishes served to the guess for lunch at the convent’s garden.
