Our Archdiocesan newspaper, Catholic New York, sent a photographer to our 50th Anniversary celebration. These photographs were published in the December 20th issue. Unfortunately we just received that issue today! I guess my habit made it front and center in the first photo, much to my embarrassment. Starting with the first sister on the left those depicted are Sr. Maria Paz Suarez, Steven Katz (the architect for our monastery completed in 2001), Sr. Paula Schmidt, Prioress, myself and Sr. Moira Quinn, Sub-prioress.
The second photo is a great long shot of our chapel during the Mass. It is small chapel designed with a community of about 15 members along with 15-20 guests in mind. That day we managed to celebrate 75 strong! This was not the least of God's blessings for the occasion.
