Celebrating Our Jubilarians

Jubilees

Nearly a total of 500 years of faithful loving service was celebrated on July 16, 2022, by eight of our Sisters at  San Juan de los Lagos Parish in San Antonio, TX.  Sr. Assunta Sanchez headed the jubilarians with 70 years of religious life, followed by four diamond (60 years) jubilarians: Sr. Martina Ponce, Sr. Claudette Germain, Sr. Edna Mary MacDonald (Australia), and Sr. Pierrette Carpentier (Canada).  The youngest group celebrated their golden jubilee of 50 years: Sr. Juanita Chavez, Sr. Celine Lomeli, and Sr. Salome Moe.

The atmosphere during the Mass and the dinner that followed was both simple and elegant, meaningful and essential.  Bishop Gary Janak, Auxiliary Bishop of San Antonio, was the main celebrant with several of our priest-friends as concelebrants.  Gratitude to God was noticeably the atmosphere of the day as everyone present shared both joy and humble pride at the many years of enthusiastic fidelity of our eight jubilarians!  We felt so very welcomed and right at home due to the great hospitality of the pastor, Fr. David Muñoz-Lopez, O.M.I.
