Joyful celebrations  of Sr. Christine Bohr´s 97th birthday and 75th anniversary of Consecration.

The celebration was like the lifting of a curtain exploring the memories that are stored in memory and in the heart. On this day the distinguished jubilee celebration was accompanied by the community and friends of Sr. Christine and Sr. Anna Małdrzykowska SAC, General Councilor and Sr. Magdalena Pinto SAC, Superior of the community in the Procura.

We wish Sr. Christine:

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace”.

▪ Sr. Anna Maria Langpohl’s celebrated 105th birthday in Park Mount on the 25th. It was a joy to have her relatives from Germany with her – Ulrich and Mechtilde, who stayed for two days. She received many cards and flowers and even a cake and champagne brought by Agatha from St. James’ Parish, in Spanish Place, London where she worked for almost 30 years. For several weeks she has not been feeling well, but she is a little stronger these days.

▪ Led by the parish Prayer Group and Sr. Mary McNulty an Ecumenical Prayer Meeting was held in Park Mount Residential Home for the Elderly. All enjoyed the singing and praying together.

▪ On the Presentation Feast Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster had invited the Religious of the Diocese for a special Mass followed by a hot lunch. This is an “official token of gratitude from the Diocesan Authorities for the consistently generous contribution that the members of religious communities make to the spiritual, human, pastoral and academic life of the Diocese of Westminster.” The Jubilarians were seated at the front of the Cathedral. In the Dining Hall they had their photo taken and Sr. Christine, being the only one who was 70 years professed, had a separate one taken. Sr. Petrone, who is 75 years professed, was not well enough to attend.

It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
