Today we honor seven jubilarians. Sisters Maryellen Riley, Bede Luetkemeyer, Mary Jane Romero, Laurentia Doyle, Benita Luetkemeyer and Anita Valdez all celebrate their diamond or 60th Monastic Profession. Sister Cheryl Morehead celebrates her silver jubilee.
Since we are all in Clyde for our assembly, we will celebrate as one in our Adoration Chapel. Following the banquet at the Lord’s table, we will share common table for a brunch and a day of great rejoicing.
Sisters Maryellen and Benita reside in our healthcare facility, Our Lady of Rickenbach, and work as they are able. Sisters Bede, Mary Jane and Anita are sisters from our Tucson monastery where they serve the community in prayer, liturgy and sewing vestments. Sisters Laurentia and Cheryl live in Clyde and serve in the altar bread department and in leadership and grounds maintenance, respectively.
Let us give thanks for these faithful women who have given their lives to God, and they have been a blessing to us, the church and the world for it. We thank God for them and their fruitfulness!
