Sr. Rita Rodrigue marked 50 years of monastic profession on June 30 at a Mass and dinner shared by the community, some of our brothers from St Joseph's Abbey, family and friends. Relatives and friends came from near (New England) and far (Illinois and California) to share this time of giving thanks to God for his fidelity and for Sister's self gift. Photos of the celebration are posted and can be seen at this site.

The day's liturgy was in honor of Our Lady. Each monastery of our Order is dedicated to Mary and during this joyous celebration we sang hymns and responses in her honor.
