May 21st was a day of great celebration when Cardinal Dolan of New York honored a group of consecrated religious men and women. Among the group of honorees were Missionary Sisters Sr. Joan Marie Sariti; John Giani and Celia Cid. They are pictured in the front row, 4th, 3rd, and 2nd respectively from the right. Sr. Joan Marie is celebrating 70 years as an MSC, Srs. John and Celia are celebrating 60 years, and Sr. Amada Liboro, not pictured, is celebrating 50 years. This photo appeared on the front page of the May 25th edition of Catholic New York.
Sr. Joan Marie writes, “We were invited by Cardinal Dolan for a jubilee Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral for all religious women and men. We then proceeded to his residence for a delicious buffet luncheon. We all received a rosary blessed by the Pope when he was in New York in 2015. It was a great day.”
Congratulations and blessings, Sisters!
