This past week has been a time of great rejoicing as family and friends gathered with the OLSH sisters to celebrate the remarkable lives of six OLSH sisters.
On 10th January 2015, Sisters Yvonne Berecry and Margaret Jennings celebrated 60 years of Religious Profession and Sisters Rita Clancy, Yvonne Gleeson, Marilyn Knolder, Robyn Reynolds celebrated 50 years of Religious Profession.
A blessing prayer, from Robyn Reynolds olsh, for everyone on the Jubilee day:
I do not wish you joy without a sorrow,
Not endless day without the healing dark,
Nor brilliant sunshine without the gentle shade
Not tides that never turn against your barque
I wish you faith, strength, love, hope,
Gifts gold enough to help some needy one,
I wish you music and also blessed silence
And God's sweet peace when each day is done.
And I wish you a heart bursting with gratitude as mine is this day!
