Northeast 2017 Jubilarians

We congratulate 91 Sisters celebrating over 5,900 years of service!

This year we joyfully honor 91 sisters in the Northeast Community who are celebrating their jubilee milestones. Along with sisters’ photos, you will find the date and location where sisters entered, and their motto, which was engraved on the ring each sister received upon professing her vows. Additionally, some sisters share a short reflection about their years as a Sister of Mercy, which you can read by clicking on their names. We invite you to write a congratulatory message in the Guestbook, and/or honor a sister with a gift in her name, through links available on her individual page.

Below, you will find Jubilarian sisters from Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New York (Albany), Rhode Island and Vermont. Click here to see photos from some of the Jubilee celebrations.

Thank you, sisters, for your many years of joyful service!
