During the religious right, Bishop Joseph Franzelli said, that the event was a sign of God’s love for the People and the Church at large.
He called on the newly avowed Sisters to remain faithful to their vocation and the mission of the Church they have been called to embrace.
He emphatically stressed to the newly professed Sisters the importance to remain united if they are to succeed in the ministry of the Church. Among them were the five Sisters who celebrated their Silver Jubilee and also renewed their vows of commitment.
