60 Years of Religious Life

Sister Mary Gillis, CND

On November 1, 2015 at the 10:00 o’clock Mass celebrated by Father Odilon, SVD in Tobata Catholic Church, Sister Mary Gillis and Sister Teruko Suga celebrated the 60th Anniversary of their profession. A large number of parishioners were in attendance, and after Mass a celebratory homemade lunch prepared by the women of the parish and the sisters was enjoyed by all. Our two sisters were filled with joy. Sister Mary Gillis, speaking for both of them, shared the stories of their call and the role that encounter (deai) had played in each one, and they thanked everyone for the celebration. The sisters from both of our houses in Tobata then sang a song called “Ito” (Thread), which has “deai” as its theme. It is one of Miyuki Nakashima’s songs.

We all renewed our resolve to live as “daughters of the parish” in the tradition left to us by our foundress, St. Marguerite Bourgeoys.
