Conception Parish (in Lapeer) joined the
sisters in their celebration at their
monastery, Our Lady of Mount Thabor in
began with the Memorial Mass of St.

preaching the homily. Following the
Mass, the Superior of the community, Sr.

the sisters for all the support they have
received for the occasion and throughout
the years. The celebration was
