Sr. Martine Tapsoba, Superior General
Last July 17, the General Chapter 2012 of the Religious of the Assumption elected Sr. Martine Tapsoba as their new Superior General. Sr. Martine, 53 years old, is from Burkina Faso. She was a member of the General Council from 2006-2012. Previous to that she was Provincial Superior of West Africa (composed of the countries of Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Benin, Togo and Niger) and Novice Mistress. Her term of office is six years.
We give thanks to God for this wonderful gift !
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for gifting us with new General Councillors to form part of the General Council with Sr. Martine Tapsoba (Burkina Faso): our very own Sr. Maria Josefina "MarJo" Matias, Sr. Carmen Escribano (Spain), Sr. Maria Eugenia (Ecuador-Chile) and Sr. Francoise Martin (France). We rejoice and are glad!
