Sisters of Saint Joseph of Annecy

Golden Jubilee of Sister Breda and Sister Michelle
15th June 2019

  Sister Michelle and Sister Breda after the Mass

With the Chapel and library resplendent with flowers and decorations it was easy to see that this was going to be a special celebration.Friends, family and sisters were soon gathered in the Chapel for Mass, and the Sanctuary was soon filled with 8 priests and 2 Deacons. The singing added to the majesty of the celebration.            Although the day began cloudy and grey skies once the Mass was over and everyone proceeded to the Library for the meal the sun came out and it was possible to sit outside.The beautiful cake was iced by Sister Madge and the cake made by Sister Laurentia. The meal was prepared by our Chefs and kitchen staff and was presented beautifully and tasted devine! (no pun intended) After the meal was over there was time to chat to friends, family and sisters. In the evening Sister Breda had arranged for a Male Voice Choir to come and entertain those who were staying overnight, which was appreciated by everyone present and rounded off a perfect day.The icing on the cake was the presence of the Superior General Sr. Pauline and her Council at the celebration.
