Diamond Jubilee celebration
Congratulations to Sisters Bernadette Yeo and Florence Wong
On 6 November 2021, the community in St Francis Convent Singapore had a small celebration for our Diamond Jubilarians who celebrated their 60 years of religious life. Friar Julian OFM was the celebrant for Mass held in the Convent chapel at 4.30pm and Friar Peter OFM was also present. Due to COVID restrictions in Singapore, the celebration was for the sisters in St Francis Convent only. Those who could not be present rejoiced with our Jubilarians in spirit and are happy that they are able to mark this day in a special celebratory way.
Sisters Bernadette and Florence expressed their gratitude for this celebration and although low key, they shared that “we were happy to have had a big celebration for our Golden Jubilee which was important for us then.” After Mass, there was the cutting of the cake in the front foyer and a celebratory meal in the dining room.
Congratulations Sisters Bernadette and Florence on reaching this Diamond milestone. May the Lord continue to bless you in all your ways and days!
