Celebrating 40 years as a professed sister in CSF

Bishop Michael, Sr Joyce and Sr Sue during the renewal of Joyce’s vows

On 4th January the CSF Southwark house chapel saw another celebration.  The recently re-dedicated Shrine to Our Lady of Walsingham, now the house chapel, hosted a service to mark Sister Joyce’s 40th Anniversary of Profession.    Michael Bishop of Woolwich presided at the eucharist which was attended by 14 people – 5 CSF sisters and other friends.   Sister Sue, the Minister Provincial received Joyce’s renewed commitment to her vows and gave a homily, while Sister Gina led the intercessions.  A  celebration meal in the house followed the service.

Sister Joyce had made her Profession at Compton Durville, Somerset in January 1973, and her Life Profession was in San Francisco in December 1975.  Over the years Joyce has served the Community in very many capacities, and most recently as Minister General, a post she held for 10 years until February 2012.
