Diamond Jubilee Celebrated for two New Glasgow CND Sisters

On August 27, 2014 the parishioners of All Saints Pastoral Unit gathered in Saint John the Baptist Church to honor Sisters Anne Marie MacKenzie and Mary Joan MacDonald on the occasion of their Diamond Jubilee of profession to the Congregation de Notre Dame. In keeping with our Associate Relationship Mission and Vision Statement the Associates of Pictou/New Glasgow gathered with New Victoria Associates Gerald and Winnie Odo to live “mutuality in visitation”. The celebrant was Fr. Gary MacPherson who highlighted the word “yes” many times in his congratulatory words to both these wonderful Sisters who have given so much over the past 60 years to those they shared time with on this journey. Here are their words of sentiment: To Fr. Gary, the parishioners, the CWL, the choir and to all who were so kind in acknowledging our Diamond Jubilee. We deeply appreciate the prayers, warm wishes, the gifts received, and your abiding presence to us, not only during our celebration, but throughout the years. God bless you for your thoughtfulness, and know that you are in our prayers.
