2022 Assembly


In honour of St. Bakhita, a series of talks at parishes is under way in Croatia.


RENATE member Viktorija Šimić, SCSC, shares her human trafficking awareness-raising actions to mark the feast of St. Bakhita, 8th February, 2018.
Commencing on the 25th January, Viktorija continues her visits to parishes and has arranged to visit six parishes from late January and throughout the month of February. Every Thursday, she will visit a different parish to give a talk about Human Trafficking and to pray with the parish priests and the assembly, for the victims and to bring an end to Human Trafficking. It is a source of great hope that the parish priests are receptive to the topic. 
An additional step has been the translation of the RENATE Information and Awareness-raising Flier, which has been translated into Croatian and which Viktorija has circulated to all the Religious communities (male and female) in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
‘’Let’s hope that this small step forward will help the Religious and the 
Church in general in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina,  to know more about human trafficking in order to pray more earnestly and to act accordingly.
May St Bakhita pray for us, and may God bless us.’’- Sr. Viktorija.
