Sisters, Families, and Friends Rejoice with 2022 Jubilarians

Posted on: October 21st, 2022 by Marian Doyle

September 18 was a day to celebrate and to honor 11 Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi who marked Jubilee years in 2022. Jubilarians were recognized for 75, 70, 60, 50, and 25 years as professed members of the congregation.

The celebration began with a Jubilee Mass in Troubadour. Father Jim Schroeder, SCJ, presided. The Mass was followed by a noon festive luncheon for Jubilarians, their families, and invited guests in the Town Square at St. Francis Convent.
