Diamond, Golden, and Silver Jubilee Celebrations

Diamond, Golden, and Silver Jubilee Celebrations

The Jubilarian Sisters of Daegu Priory were celebrated on October 3, 2013. It also happened to be the public holiday of the National Foundation of Korea. The Diamond Jubilarian, Sr. Bertwina Casesar, Golden Jubilarian, Sr. Regina Pyo along with the Silver Jubilarians, Sisters Bethania Lee, Gertruda Park and Editha Lee were honored by community members, Oblates, family and friends at a solemn High Mass Celebration.

Abbot Blasio Park of Waegwan Abbey presided over the mass during which the jubilarians renewed their monastic vows. The combination of silver, golden, and diamond jubilee reminded all of us that the monastic profession is an ongoing process of transformation into Christ which involves the whole lifespan. After supper, a small congratulatory party was held at the refectory for the Jubilarians. Performances were prepared by all including the postulants and elderly sisters.
