On September 14, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, the Assumption Sisters celebrated Sr Veronica Ann's 50 years of Religious Profession.
Assumption Sisters, family of Sr VA, parishioners and friends gathered to join celebrating her Golden Jubilee in the parish church of Our Lady of Lourdes in Wanstead. The warm words of Canon Patrick J. Sammon, who was also the main celebrant of the mass, resonated with many, whose lives were touched by Sister VA's kindness and ministry. The liturgy included the renewal of her religious vows and receiving a special papal blessing.
We give thanks for Sr Veronica Ann's fidelity, and for the many blessings the Lord has given to her and to others through her!
"I thank all those who have travelled this journey with me, my Family, the many Sisters of the Assumption, Priests, Friends; from Brazil, St. Andrews, Richmond, Yorkshire, Oxford, Kensington and Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Wanstead. Thank you for celebrating with me, my loving friendship and prayers to each one of you." - said Sister VA
