Northeast 2020 Jubilarians

We congratulate 68 Sisters celebrating over 4,300 years of service!

This year we joyfully honor 68 sisters in the Northeast who are celebrating their jubilee milestones. Along with sisters’ photos, you will find the date and location where they 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.

Thank you, sisters, for your many years of joy and service!
