Sr. Nettie’s Golden Jubilee

 Our Sr. Nettie Gamble celebrated her golden jubilee on July 4th.  Mass was celebrated by Dom Brendan Freeman of New Melleray Abbey and Sr. Nettie renewed her monastic vows after the gospel was read. 

The day was a combination jubilee celebration and an Independence Day celebration.  After Mass we had a festive meal,  all of the fare being 4th of July picnic food.  The community was joined by 14 members of Sr. Nettie’s family and many friends.  It was a great time!
