The Sisters at Notre Dame Parkland celebrated and gave thanks for the 270 years of religious life of our three 70th Jubilarians and one 60th. With Sisters Helen Aboud, Georgina MacInnis, Loretta MacLennan, along with Sister Theresa Sampson, we shared a thanksgiving prayer, reminiscences of Novitiate days, and experiences in the Congregation de Notre-Dame. Afterwards we enjoyed a glass of wine, treats and a beautiful Jubilee cake.

We are Blessed!

A wonderful time to remember how blessed we are.
