70th Jubilee

May 20, 2008


Sister Ildefonsa and Sister Pacifica with Bishop Jenky

This past Saturday we gathered at the Motherhouse to celebrate two Sisters 70th year in Religious Life. It was a gorgeous day- the sun was shining, the lake was beautiful with the grotto behind it.  For the celebration I had a few “jobs”. First, it was to hand out the Mass programs, then I carried the hosts in the Presentation of the Gifts. After the Mass we all gathered in the Multipurpose Room to enjoy a festive meal. We were blessed to enjoy the day with several friends and co-workers of Sister Ildefonsa and with several members of Sister Pacifica’s family.  What a great grace that was!  Thank you Sister Pacifica and Sister Ildefonsa for your witness of faithful service to Our Lord and to His sick poor. May God continue to richly bless you both.

    My husband and I had the privilege of being part of the joyful celebration, What a beautiful Mass and luncheon in honor of Sister Ildefonsa and Sister Pacifica. Thanks so much for sharing with us through “Franciscan Footprints”. What a great idea!!
    May God richly bless the Sisters of St Francis, their “sisters in the making”, and all those they serve with the greatest care and love.
    In Jesus & Mary, Annie
