Sr Rose Celine is Bethany Sisters' Superior General

The Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany, known as Bethany Sisters, indigenous to Mangaluru, elected a new Superior General --- Rev Sr Rose Celine --- at the ongoing XVI General Chapter of the Congregation, held at the Motherhouse, Bendur, recently. 

She is the tenth Superior General of Bethany Congregation which was founded in 1921 by Servant of God RFC Mascarenhas (1875-1960), a priest of Mangalore diocese. He is the first Mangalorean to gain the privilege on being put on the path to sainthood in the church.

Sr Rose Celine succeeds Rev Sr Wiberta who successfully held the position of Superior General from March 2010. Sr Rose Celine had  served as Councilor to Sr Wilberta and has creditably coordinated the Education Ministry of the Congregation.  

The Bethany sisters who are pioneers all over in India, in a few pockets of Africa and Europe in education, social action, medical aid, care of elders and so on will get a modern direction with this step it is expected.

The Congregation also elected a team of four Councilors to the Superior General - Sr Lillis, Sr Shanti Priya, Sr Mariette and Sr Lilitta.
