The summer was so full that when September came our blog was neglected. We apologize for not keeping you updated.
Five Sisters marked their silver anniversaries, two marked 60 years of profession, and three of us celebrated 50 years. In the photo below one of the silver jubilarians is visible on the left, Sister Domenica and Sister Mary Joan 60th anniversary; Sr. Irene Mary, Sr. Mary Peter and Sister Majorina are golden jubilarians.
Sister joined nine other Daughters of St. Paul who are also jubilarians at our Boston Provincialate and Novitiate in August.
After a few weeks of vacation the two Sisters of the Philadelphia community celebrated the Feast of Mary's Nativity, Sr. Mary Peter's 50th anniversary, and the going-away party for Sister Cynthia Guza.
About 25 people attended the Mass concelebrated by Father Dennis Gill and Monsignor John Wendrychowicz. At the end of Mass the Sisters thanked the priests and their guests for celebrating with them and for all the help these friends have contributed for many years in Philadelphia and New Jersey.
We pray for all of our friends, volunteers and Pauline Cooperators without whose help we would not be able to reach so many people. For all of you readers who could not be present, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We look forward to seeing you at various events in the Philadelphia/Harrisburg and Trenton areas especially.
Have a blessed continuation of October, Pro-Life Month, and Month of Mary's Rosary.
