It was a celebration in Cartierville–50, 60 and 65 years of religious life.
On May 7, thirteen Jubilarians celebrated their 50-60-65 years. Seven of our brothers the Missionaries or Africa celebrated with us, three of whom were also Jubilarians. A sister had decorated the chapel for the occasion and did not forget to put an African note. A tree with long branches near the altar attracted attention–with flags and beautiful birds …
An explanation was given about the flags inviting us to focus attention on the one of TANZANIA, formerly known as Tanganyika, where our first sisters arrived. What memories thinking of our pioneers! On another branch, a small gourd containing the flag of ALGERIA the birth of our Congregation. On top there was a small gourd with the flags of ENTITY AMERICA: United States, Canada and Mexico.
The day was full of festivities for our Jubilarians.
