Sister Cecilia celebrates 60th Jubilee

Sister Cecilia Mac Dermott celebrated her 60th Jubilee of monastic profession on Friday, June 7, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart. During the celebration, Sister Cecilia renewed her profession and once again sang the Suscipe, surrendering herself to God. Following the Eucharistic Liturgy, the community celebrated with a festive meal. Later in the afternoon, an Irish Tea provided an opportunity for Sister Cecilia to open her Jubilee gifts. The day was a wonderful celebration of Sister Cecilia’s fidelity to God.
