During 2015 seven women celebrated 50 and 60 years as members of the Sisters of Mercy. Fifty and sixty yeara ago they were welcomed into the novitiate of the Mercy congregation in Newfoundland. Diane Smyth was the Golden Jubilarian and Sisters Carmelita Power, Josette Hutchings, Jane McGrath, Nellie Pomroy, Theresa Boland and Lydia Kelly celebrated sixty years – Diamond! A grand celebration of the anniversaries was held in the presence of the total membership during a congregational asssembly in August. Other celebrations were held by individual jubilarians throughout the year.
Congratulations and prayerful good wishes for blessings are extended to these women for their 410 years of life and ministry as Sisters of Mercy!
