Celebrating Jubilee!

A Jubilee year of celebration and commemoration provides an opportunity for each Jubilarian to renew her vows and reflect on God’s boundless 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!

  • Our 2023 Jubilarians

    The occasion of Jubilee is 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!

Jubilee 2021-2023

“Were your ears ringing?”  We were talking about you, the Sister Jubilarians of 2023, as we celebrated the Province Jubilee on Saturday, September 9, 2023.

On Saturday, June 3, the Chicago area celebrated the Jubilees of Sisters Jeanne McGue (80), Lucy Giacchetti (70), Joan O’Connell (70), Lupita Marie Cordero (60), and Catherine Sarther (60).
A day of celebration was shared by jubilarians, friends, and family at Villa Assumpta last weekend. A special Mass was followed by a very special lunch menu.

In 1864, Mother Theresa introduced the tradition of celebrating with the Jubilarians.“This year on April 17 and October 28 a number of Sisters will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their profession, and may this celebration, God willing, be repeated in the coming years for the Sisters after them."
Under the COVID-19 quarantine Marian Village continues to follow the guidelines. However they did recently find a way to recognize their Jubilarians Sister Marlene Panko (60th Jubilee) and Sister Jenny VandenBergh (70th Jubilee) with a small celebration.
The 2020 Jubilee Board at Villa Notre Dame, composed by Sr. Justine Nutz, honors our 42 living AM Jubilarians and four who recently said a final YES to God: Clara Hounsell, Irene Scarola, Mary Bann, and Betty Rosser.
