Notre Dame Double Jubilee
It was a special day when Notre Dame Sisters Kathleen Anne Bridge (left) and Marie Therese Mcloughlin (right) celebrated their diamond jubilees in their congregation.
The day also marked the 215th anniversary of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Foundation so all the Sisters present renewed their vows at a Mass by Bishop Peter Holiday (centre) of Kroonstad, who came especially to the convent in Melville, Johannesburg, for the occasion.
The Sisters of Notre Dame serve in 16 countries. In South Africa they serve in Kroonstad and Johannesburg, and in Zimbabwe in Harare and Bulawayo.
