9 May 2022: 27 Golden Jubilarians of the year 2022 gathered in Bethany Mother House, Bendur, for a short renewal programme. The fourteen days renewal sessions including the retreat by Rev Fr William Sequeira SJ, Sr Mariette BS, Sr Carmelita UFS and Rev Fr Theo OCD refreshed and rejuvenated the jubilarians to look at life from a fresh perspective to make a new start with the spirit of gratitude for the blessings of the past and to live the present joyfully and generously.

A thanksgiving prayer based on the theme ‘Magnifying the Lord’ was held on 8 May 2022. The main celebration began with a Holy Eucharist centring on the faithfulness of God in living the consecrated life for 50 years. In his homily, Most Rev Dr Aloysious Paul D’Souza expressed triple jubilee of the sisters i.e. their Vocation, Profession and Mission. He also mentioned that God is delighted at the the response of the jubilarians towards their call, commitment, faithfulness and dedication.

Soon after the Eucharistic celebration, the golden stars were felicitated. Sr Rose Celine the Superior General recounting God’s faithfulness to the golden jubilarians applauded for their commitment to their consecrated life and missionary zest. She complimented them for living the charism and spirituality of the institute with diligence and keeping aflame the spirit of Founder the Servant of God RFC Mascarenhas in far-flung areas of our country and overseas. She appealed to them to grow in deep devotion to the Eucharist and Mother Mary like the Founder and to accept the declining years with greater faith.

With the carving of the cake and greeting song, the Superior General garlanded each of them and the entire gathering congratulated the jubilarians.
