“Thank you for your faithful and generous service”

Milestone Anniversaries of our Women Religious


Our diocese is blessed to be served by five communities of Women Religious.
This year, many of the Sisters who are or have served here are celebrating milestone anniversaries of their Professions.

We offer up this prayer, with sincere gratitude:


Faithful women, to Mary, our Mother, Mother of the Church and in this year dedicated to Saint Joseph, her spouse, we entrust each of you.

May you be strengthened in your living and loving faith, in your certain and joyful hope, in your humble and active charity.

May the blessing of our loving and merciful God be upon each of you.

Thank you for your faithful and generous service.
