Celebrating 70 Years of commitment to the Dominican Way of Life
Comments : Off
On Sunday 11 August 2019, Sr Rose McLarnon and Sr Eileen McCarthy celebrated their 70th anniversary of Religious Profession at St Dominic’s Priory. They celebrated their day with a Jubilee Eucharist celebration in the Convent Chapel at the Priory, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Fr Max Salsone who was prepared for his First Holy Communion by Sr Eileen was the president of the Eucharist. Max has close connections with Sr Rose as he was her parish priest in Uitenhage. Fr. Max was joined by Fr Vales Dania, Fr Ashok Brahmane OFM and Fr Matt Gormley OFM friends of the community.
Following the Jubilee Eucharist all joined in a festive lunch and enjoyed jubilee cake with the Dominican crest on it, baked by Sr Immaculata.
May God bless Sr. Rose and Eileen abundantly for their ‘Yes’ which they gave to Him so generously when they accepted God’s call for their lives 70 years ago. Eileen and Rose are both originally from Belfast and have served in the Mission Area of South Africa.
We pray that more young women would be attentive to the voice of God and give their lives generously as Dominican Sisters so that the preaching can continue.
