Introducing the members of Daughters of St. Paul

Sr.M.Paola Keiko Kaibara (2)


Soon after, the same friend told me “There is a convent who is looking for an organist on Christmas…” Hearing the word “convent” I accepted right away.
It was like a dream. I did not know anything about the church.
I went to the convent with my friend, and met the Sisters for the first time. Since that time, I practiced the hymns every day. Although I did not know anything about Mass, thanks to the kindness of Sisters, I could finally offer the Christmas Eve Mass.
After the Mass I was with the Sisters for the Christmas celebration and stayed overnight at the convent for the first time. It was such a big joy and a fulfilled Christmas !

At the New Year, I started to study the Christian religion in this convent. When I was losing my way, my friend encouraged me. Finally, at the following Christmas Eve, I could receive the sacrament of baptism. My dream about the red tower with cross, came true at this moment.

On that evening, together with another friend who got baptized with me, went to the convent, and we received the First Communion. I very fervently prayed that I would be accepted to this convent. My prayer has been listened, and after a year and half since my baptism, I entered the convent as postulant.

This convent which guided me to offer myself to God, is nowhere else but the Congregation of the Daughters of Saint Paul.
