Golden Jubilee celebration in Australia
On 15 August 2017 there was great rejoicing when priests, parishioners, friends, Nicholas (Catherine’s brother) and his wife, Sr. Connie from Malaysia (FMDM representative) gathered in the Church of Our Lady’s Assumption Mandurah Western Australia for the celebration of the Golden Jubilee of Sr. Catherine Tay which coincided with the Parish Feast Day Mass. The celebrants at Mass were Father Tony Chiera, Vicar General of the Bunbury Diocese, Western Australia, three Carmelites Priests from the Parish and Fr O’Brien.
It seemed fitting for Catherine to celebrate with the priests, parishioners and friends in Australia as she had given many years of her life and mission there. Congratulations Catherine on reaching this golden milestone. We thank God for you and for your many years of service and commitment in Australia. After Mass, the celebration continued in the Parish Centre with a festive meal and the cutting of the Jubilee cake.
