It is not often that the community has the opportunity to celebrate a 75th Jubilee, but on May 24, this rare milestone was marked by Sister Emilie Schmitt as she celebrated three-quarters of a century of Benedictine life at 99 years of age. The community gathered with her in the monastery infirmary for the Eucharist Celebration and her renewal of her monastic profession.
