An RC Class for Nigerian Nuns

I am excited to report on the first RC class at the Mission Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament Convent School Ugwuoba, near Awka, Nigeria, on 29 October, 2016.

A team of six RC teachers from the Enugu, Awka, and Unizik Communities arrived a few minutes past noon and met the young nuns, who were happy and eager to meet us.

We started the class with a beautiful prayer sung by the nuns. After that, we went straight to introductions. Holding the benign reality as an underlying principle, I then explained basic RC theory and what a session is all about.

The following mini-session went well. It took all of us down “memory lane” and led to the sharing of our best childhood experiences during the playtime. Most of us teachers couldn’t believe that nuns could jump, laugh, and shout like small girls. It was obvious they were having a great time. After the playtime, another mini-session brought lots of discharge.

In closing, I explained the structure and leadership of the Re-evaluation Counseling Communities—from the International level to the local Areas of Enugu and Awka. We ended with questions and answers, and all the leaders helped me in answering the questions.

Before we left the convent, we joined the nuns for an early supper. As we ate, they sang lots of songs, with lovely angelic voices.
