Members of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville who are celebrating milestone religious anniversaries in 2017 gathered with their community for a jubilee Mass Sept. 23 in St. Albert Chapel at the congregation’s motherhouse.
Heading the list of honorees were Sister Grace Regina Wingenfeld, who marked 90 years of religious ministry, and Sisters Mary Rosalita Judge, Marie Leonilde LaPointe and Anne Toomey, all of whom are celebrating 75-year anniversaries.
An additional 43 sisters—marking 70-, 60- and 50-year anniversaries—were also recognized during the Mass and at a luncheon that followed the service.
Dominican Father Ron Henery celebrated the liturgy, which included the renewal of religious vows by the sisters.
