Celebrating Sister Elaine’s 60th Jubilee!

60th Jubilee Celebration for Sister Elaine

This summer, Sr. Elaine is celebrating 60 years in Religious Life!  Although there will be festivities at the provincial house in Hankinson, we’re planning a celebration here at St. Anne’s, too, for those unable to attend there.

R to L: Sr. Rebecca, Sr. Elaine, Sr. Christina

You are welcome to join us Thursday, June 20th at 2 p.m. for a reception in honor of Sr. Elaine’s Jubilee.
No gifts, please.  Your presence is gift enough.

Sr. Elaine also started out her religious life serving in education, but after ten years moved into the field of long-term care.  She has served at St. Anne’s Guest Home in Grand Forks since 1970, working in the business office and helping the elderly and disabled who live there in many ways.  She has brought joy to many over the years by playing her accordion, active as a member of the area accordion club for a number of years and continuing to entertain residents and others in the area.  

Please join us in sending up a prayer of thanksgiving for these Sisters and their many years of beautiful witness, as well as in continued daily prayer for more vocations to the Consecrated Life within our Diocese.
