Jubilee Weekend

Seven of our Sisters celebrated 60-50-25 years of monastic profession this weekend. The temperature stayed warm and sunny the whole time which helped those coming from out of town to make the trip to Erie with ease.

The Jubilee celebration required an additional 150 chairs, even in the area usually reserved for handbells and other instruments.

The reception that followed spilled out onto the patio. The backyard provided lots of running around space for the children who attended.

Our Korean sisters, Sister Madeleine and Sister Elia, along with niece, Caritas, danced in their traditional Korean dresses to one of the hymns. Breathlessly beautiful.

The seven sisters' title banners were displayed in the hall between the chapel and dining room.
