Marist Sisters in Australia recently celebrated the jubilees of Sr Margaret Cummins (70years) and Sr Fidelis McTeigue (50years). During the Mass, celebrated by Kevin Bates sm in the Marist Sisters’ College chapel in Woolwich, Margaret and Fidelis renewed their vows and received a Papal Blessing.
Afternoon tea was served at Marian House and the celebrations continued in the community room with a sing-along and the signing of a 50th anniversary banner made for Fidelis by her family in Ireland to mark this memorable occasion.
Earlier this year Sr Doreen McOscar had celebrated her 75th jubilee more quietly.
There was great rejoicing in the Philippines on 8th September 2008 when Arlene and Edna from the Philippines and Florence from Papua New Guinea made their First Profession as Marist Sisters. This was the first time a profession ceremony for the Marist Sisters had taken place in the Philippines. Arlene and Edna are now ministering in Davao while Florence has been missioned to Fiji.We rejoice with Arlen, Edna and Florence and assure them of our prayerful support as they begin the next stage of their Marist journey.
