17 Sisters of Notre Dame … 955 years of service to God’s people … one tremendous celebration of God’s faithful love and our Sisters’ faith-filled response! If anyone would ask me what is my favorite day in community life, I would have to say it is definitely community jubilee day. Generosity abounds in the preparations. Joy is contagious; laughter echoes everywhere. It’s a day to give thanks for the gift of one another in our community. When I was a young Sister, I was awed by the many years my Sisters had spent in serving God. I wondered if I would ever arrive at such a day. Now that I’m years beyond my silver jubilee, I am even more awed by God’s faithful love. When we renew our vows, we trust in Our Lady’s help and the prayers and support of our Sisters to sustain us. Today we celebrate that gift in 17 wonderful women of God. Thank you, Sisters, for blessing us with your lives! Bring on the celebration!
