Sister Mary de Crus Nolan: Golden Jubilee October 7, 2020
Sister Gemma extended hospitality and the beautiful surrounding garden of her convent home in San Rafael for the celebration of Sister Mary’s 50th Jubilee.
Sisters Gemma, Dominic Marie, Anna and Mary gathered around a circular table on the verandah where we celebrated a profoundly lovely liturgy of the Word with Scripture readings and shared reflections from the prophet Isaiah (55: 6-11) and the Gospel of John (1: 1-5, 14) that have shaped her life.
Dominic and Anna brought lunch that was also celebrated around the circular “eucharistic” table as we reflected on our lives and stories shaped by our Oakford charism here in the U.S. Area.
The U.S. Area hopes and prays to be able to celebrate our Jubilarians with each other--together-- at our Spring 2021 Assembly. May our good God heal our suffering brothers and sisters and our dear Earth home from this horrific pandemic that afflicts everyone so severely.
