Cabrini of Westchester celebrated the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 24th with a liturgy led by Pastoral Care Director, Fr. Ron Galt, in the Cabrini Chapel. This year, the liturgy was very special as it was the first time in two years that residents were able to gather in the chapel to celebrate this feast day due to the distancing guidelines that were in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sr. Arlene Van Dusen, MSC was invited by Fr. Ron to share a reflection after the Gospel in which she said, “As the church celebrates the Feast of the Sacred Heart, remember that we are bound heart to heart with Jesus and His mother Mary. This feast is not so much about Jesus’ heart, but about our own hearts, which Jesus wants to be like His.”
After the reflection, the Missionary Sisters who were present during the Mass renewed their vows and several Cabrini Lay Missionaries renewed their commitments.
The festivities continued into the afternoon as the Missionary Sisters enjoyed a wonderful lunch prepared by Director of Food Service, Daryl Foriest and his team. This delicious meal was offered to the residents as well. A joyous Feast Day was had by all.
