Jubilee Celebrations in Australia: 25 September 2011
‘Celebration of God’s Love’
On Sunday 25 September 2011 in the Genazzano FCJ College Chapel in Kew Melbourne, six FCJs celebrated their jubilees.
Pictured just before the cutting of the cake are (left to right): Srs Mary O’Shannessy and Anne Morrison (50 years professed), Mary Kennedy (60 years professed), Denise Mulcahy and Toni Courtney (50 years professed) and Myrna Nunan (60 years professed).
The celebrant of the Eucharist was Fr Stan Lim SJ, parish priest of St Ignatius Church, Richmond. Also with him was Fr Des Fitzgerald cssr. The beautiful music was provided by the parish choir at St Ignatius.
The three readers were sisters of the jubilarians – Srs Catherine Morrison, Cecilia Courtney and Margaret Kennedy. The bright sunshine of the day reflected the joy of all present, and the title which had been chosen for the Mass booklet ‘Celebration of God’s Love’ summed up the whole occasion as FCJs, families and friends mingled together.
