Senior jubilee at Los Gatos

On June 1, Feast of the Ascension, 14 Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary celebrated Jubilees of 60, 70 and 80 years of religious profession in the chapel of Convent of the Holy Names in Los Gatos. Those celebrating their Diamond Jubilee were the first entrance group at the new convent in 1952. This group included Sisters Joan Bourdon, Patricia Bussman, Elizabeth Davis, Miriam Mark Eddy, Rosemary Everett, Dianne Fagan, Mary Alice Hein, Rita Josephine McKernan, Dorothy Nolan, Jacqueline Quinn and Inez Sherwood. Celebrating 70 years are Sisters Helena Gleeson (who could not be present), Mary Anselm Grover and Therese Ottman. The sisters' centenarian, Sister Mary Louise Guenther, celebrated 80 years of vowed life.

Most Rev. John C. Wester, bishop of Salt Lake City, and a Holy Names Associate presided at the liturgical celebration. Sister Mary Pat LeRoy offered a scriptural reflection. Sisters, associates, family and friends of the jubilarians filled the chapel, and then gathered for a reception honoring the jubilarians after the liturgy.
