SNJM Jubilee Celebration
On Sunday, May 16, 2010, we were privileged to celebrate with four Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary their golden jubilee of religious profession.  From left to right, Sister Kathleen Hearn, Sister Mary Garvin, Sister Janet Ryan, and Sister Judy Ryan.

SNJM Jubilee Celebration
The consecrated life, which these sisters have faithfully lived for fifty years, is rooted in their baptism, and so we begin the jubilee liturgy by being reminded of our baptism.

Sister Janet Ryan proclaims the reading from Ephesians: "may the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call."

Before renewing their vows, the sisters light candles, just as they did on the day of their profession as religious.
