Sr. Mary Stella's Golden Jubilee

On Saturday the 10th of September, we had the joy of celebrating the Golden Profession of Sr. Mary Stella. About 90 people were there to celebrate with us. Mass was at 11:30 AM. Fr.John McGowan OCD was the main celebrant and Fr. Peter Craddy OCSO gave the homily. Fr. Michael, our chaplain, and Fr. John Gibson, our local parish priest concelebrated. The mass was followed by buffet lunch which ended with the customary cutting of the cake. Sr. Mary Stella was joined by members of her family, former staff and students from #St.Bernard's Slough, oblates, and members of the gardening and icon groups along with many others! (Fortunately, the new kitchen was ready just on time!) We are still waiting for more photos, here are just a few, including one of the cake.
