CSJ 2010 Jubilarians

On Saturday, March 13, 2010, over 350 Sisters of St. Joseph and CSJ Associates gathered at St Joseph’s Provincial House to celebrate the gift of vocation with the 39 jubilarians of 2010 who commemorated 75, 70, 60 and 50 years in the congregation and who share 2,110 years of service as Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.

Applause and cheering began the moment the oldest jubilarians entered the chapel to begin the procession and continued until the "youngest" jubilarians had taken their seats. Sisters Katherine Arseneau and Jackie Johnas led the Litany of Remembrance as Sisters Nora Ann Murtagh, Patricia Conron, Elizabeth Michele Newell and Carol Ann Peston lighted a candle for each of the 39 deceased members of the jubilee groups. After PH Chaplain Geoffrey Burke had proclaimed the Gospel, Sister Rose Margaret Noonan, a 75th jubilarian who had celebrated her 92nd birthday the day before, inspired participants with reflections focused on the importance of being women who are faithful to the Gospels and to our rich heritage as Sisters of St. Joseph. Sister Rose Margaret recalled for us how our foremothers in community were willing to take risks to make God’s world a better place and challenged us to do the same. Sisters and associates celebrated, through the Word, the Eucharist and the richness of dance and song, the joy of being together.
 
Throughout the day, jubilarians, sisters and associates expressed thanks to the Jubilee Committee, Morrison Food Service, and all others who had helped to plan the beautiful day of celebration. Most of all, sisters and associates alike, offered thanks to God for the gifts of faithfulness, friendship, service and love with which they had been blessed.
