What is life like in Nuuk? For the three of us, it is simply living out the fidelity to our daily Nazareths, in a minority people and in a poor Church community.

From Little sister Noele.

'I am here quite simply available for whatever may turn up! Sometimes I spend time with the neighbours or work as a volunteer at the Red Cross Centre. I enjoy taking part in the various activities for people of my age and I like to go and represent the Community at Services in the Lutheran Church.'

From Little sister Marie Julienne

'I work as a volunteer in a house caring for children in the Community. Our motto is: For more life! and that is what we try to help come about!'

From Little sister Agnes Ghislaine

'Sometimes I feel a bit like a rare post, stuck deep into the ground, in the midst of a whirlwind of temporary nurses in the orthopedic department of the local hospital!

I am there to bring continuity: welcome to the personnel and a presence to the patients who come from all over Greenland.'

The three of us also provide continuity in the parish, each one with her gifts, giving support to our pastor when he is there and in his absence to our little international community.
