The Eucharist was concelebrated in the Chapel of Lourdes Health Care Center in Wilton, CT where the two Sisters reside.
Some Carmelites with whom we share the monastery in Beacon and other longtime friends joined us for the Mass and afterward at the SSND Villa where all enjoyed a requested ‘Easter picnic’ lunch of rice and beans, hot dogs and sauerkraut and all the trimmings plus chocolate cake and strawberry ice cream. Because we were a small group, it felt like a real family celebration. Everyone enjoyed looking at the picture display of our Jubilarians throughout the years which was setup in the dining room.
To that we all say, “Amen. And congratulations Sisters, thank you for your years of love and fidelity."
