West Midwest 2019 Jubilarians

This year we join in gratitude for the sisters in the West Midwest Community who are celebrating their significant jubilee years in 2019. With their photos, you will find the city where they entered, as well as their motto, which appears engraved on the ring each sister received upon professing their vows. Additionally, many Sisters have written a reflection about her years as a Sister of Mercy, which you can read by clicking on her name. We also invite you to write a congratulatory message and/or honor the Sister with a gift in her name through links available on her individual page.

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