Happy Jubilee
June 7, 2016 10:22 AM

We celebrated the Jubilee of our eight Sisters on June 4 in St. Francis of Assisi Church. The Eucharistic Liturgy was celebrated by Most Reverend Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop, Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. Reverend John L. Ostdiek, OFM, who resides at St. Clare’s Villa, Alton, IL, was the homilist. “And now with a Jubilarian’s eye, look back on how the years in your religious life and ministry matured, blossomed in full,” Father John stated in his homily. “Think back to your ministry, ‘To heal the broken-hearted…to bring good news to the poor…to tell the people that the Lord will save them.’ (Isaiah 61:1-11). Through countless efforts to care and even cure, you brought Jesus’ story of the Good Samaritan, the story of St. Francis of Assisi caring for lepers, and the example of many, many Hospital Sisters, into reality,” he added.

Throughout their religious life, these Sisters served in various capacities at their sponsored hospitals in Illinois, Wisconsin, China, and Japan, served in leadership, and served in cities throughout Illinois, Missouri, Louisiana, and Haiti. Jubilee marks the anniversary when a Sister professes First Vows in a religious community.

Each year, we recognize our Sisters who observe the anniversary of their First Profession of Vows - this observance is called Jubilee and is celebrated at 25 years, 50 years, 60 years, 70 years, 75 years and even 80 years.

In 2016, we give thanks to God for our eight Jubilarians' life of service to our Community, the Church, and the world.
