Jubilee Celebrations are a wonderful time to gather as community, to celebrate our Sisters, to celebrate our lives together. During the liturgy, all the Sisters present are invited to stand and renew their vows as Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. It is always a touching moment, in the presence of the family and friends of the Jubilarians and our Sisters and Associates to stand and recite our renewal of vows.
As our CSJP Constitutions say:
As we live our vows each day
we trust that Christ's blessing promised
to peacemakers will sustain us,
knowing that God working in us
will accomplish more than we can ask
or imagine. (Constitution 62)
Only 19 years to my own silver Jubilee! I know the years will fly by!
