This year, 2022, is a Platinum anniversary for five of our sisters, Geraldine Mason, Irene Neville, Anita Best, Georgina Quick and Madonna O’Neill. Sister Colette Ryan was a member of this group and we fondly remember her. Sister Loretta Dower reached her platinum milestone last year in 2021 and we celebrate with her this year belatedly!
For many years, 16 July, Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, this was the day when our sisters were received into the novitiate, made first profession, renewal of vows and perpetual profession. It remains a special day of remembrance and celebration in our congregation.
We congratulate each of the jubilarians not only for reaching this milestone —seventy years plus since their reception as members of the Sisters of Mercy— but in gratitude for as many years in Mercying and Imaging the face of God where ever each lived and worked up to this present day.
