The occasion of Jubilee is also a time for all Sisters of the province and international congregation to express gratitude to God and to our Jubilarian Sisters for their faithful love.Join us in celebrating our Jubilarian Sisters by sharing a story about a Jubilarian who has touched your life, or making a gift in their honor.

Jubilee is a special time to rejoice with our sisters as they celebrate their 25, 40, 50, 60, 70, 75, or 80 years of faithful love and service to God!
