Celebration of 70 Years of Religious Profession31st August 2010

The 26th August marked seventy years since their first profession of Vows for Sisters Marita Sweeney and Catherine O’Carrigan.

Each Sister marked the occasion with a quiet celebration of the Eucharist followed by refreshments, with the celebration shared with family members and other Sisters of Charity.

Sr Marita’s celebration was held at Corpus Christi Aged Care Facility, Clayton, Victoria and Sr Catherine’s at Stella Maris Aged Care Facility, Cronulla, NSW.

A Papal blessing was presented to each during the Eucharist during which she renewed her Vows.
